From the soaring temperatures of the Middle Eastern deserts, through to the freezing waters of the North
Sea, each new energy deposit comes with its own set of challenges. Plus, with the dilemmas of rising labor
costs and the shrinking numbers of skilled staff in many areas, asking your workforce to constantly monitor
your assets by hand not only puts them in harms way but also costs you money.

The Company
vMonitor
vMonitor is a ISO 9001 company that is a wholly owned subsidiary TM
of the Control and Applications Group in Abu Dhabi, United Arab
Emirates, with offices in The United States, India, Kuwait, Oman and
a number of countries in South America, Africa and Asia.
vMonitor has over 150 employees each with an average of over 15
years of Oil & Gas experience. Some of vMonitors clients include
Shell, Petroleum Development Oman, Kuwait Oil Company, PEMEX,
Chevron and Petronas Carigali.

The Concept
vMonitors concept of the Digital Oilfield utilizes innovative monitoring and automation solutions that combine cutting edge wireless
terminal units, wireless gateways and standalone software to help clients make important decisions and improve production.
The digital oilfield concept has been used to assist Petroleum Development Oman for many years to optimize their productions and
lower their overall CAPEX and OPEX by more than 30%. In Venezuela, PDVDSA has reduced their operating cost by more than 20% and
increased their production due to data optimization by 15% of gross production after vMonitor implemented a monitoring solution.
