World Oil & Gas Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) Market 2017-2022 - Research and Markets


The "Oil & Gas LPWA" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.

In the past two years, we saw growing interest in Low Power Wide Area (LPWA) network solutions such as LoRa, Sigfox, LTE-M and NB-IoT and this trend continues. The multi-mile sensing and control capabilities provided by LPWA technologies is perfectly matched for oil and gas wellhead automation and pipeline operations as well as innovative solutions for asset tracking and logistics.

The US congress's decision to allow oil and gas exports was a key decision that has enabled the US oil and gas industry to have a faster recovery from the 2014-2016 oil downturn. LPWA is the latest development that impacts this industry by solving complex and labor expensive monitoring and management of remote wellheads and assets. LPWA solutions move the networking and provisioning complexity to the in-premises or cloud network server. This lowers labor costs as routers and repeaters are not needed and development is primarily done in the cloud.

LPWA Advantages for IoT Solutions Include the Following:

  • Communicate over multiple miles using a single gateway for tens of thousands of nodes
  • Nodes can run on battery powered nodes for 10+ years
  • Use a star based topology that is easier to manage and extend than wireless mesh networks
  • Device and gateway costs are relatively low and will trend lower as deployments grow
  • Network management is primarily handled in the cloud making it easier to provision devices

By 2022, there will be 30 million wireless sensing, tracking and control devices in use worldwide for oil and gas exploration, production, pipeline operations as well as logistics and distribution. LPWA technologies will be the fastest growing and will enable millions of new connections that are not feasible with other technologies.
