Engineering Procurement Construction (EPC) companies are essentially the hands and feet of any major oil and gas new construction operation. An EPC is absolutely necessary for companies to build new facilities or make changes and additions to existing ones. From conception to turnover, they are designing, building, procuring, constructing, and commissioning to ensure a smooth operation. It’s imperative that every “i” is dotted and every “t” is crossed, as major oil and chemical companies are entrusting them with their biggest assets.
Oil and gas operations are commonly found in remote locations far from company headquarters. Now, it's possible to monitor pump operations, collate and analyze seismic data, and track employees around the world from almost anywhere. Whether employees are in the office or in the field, the internet and related applications enable a greater multidirectional flow of information – and control – than ever before.
