"COVID 19 Pandemic has taken heavy toll on the global economy and the Oil & Gas Industry is no exception. The impact of the pandemic on this industry is made further worse due to the unique factors specific to it.

In this context, the solutions brought to the table by the Immersive technologies of VR and AR play a critical role in helping all the stakeholders in this industry in mitigating the risks and overcoming the problems emerging from aspects such as extended lock-down and social distancing, necessitated by the COVID Pandemic. VR AR based solutions can be effectively implemented to address various and unique requirements of the sector such as quick and effective training of relatively in-experienced personnel to enable them to step into the shoes of regular personnel who are not available, providing remote expert assistance whereby the need for emergency travel to remote plant locations is eliminated, providing pre-authored visualized instructions for personnel to undertake complex tasks without expert supervision and monitoring, as well as remote collaboration where joint physical meetings are not possible.

Stakeholders in the Oil & Gas industry who have already deployed VR AR solutions in their business functions are thus in a better position to effectively mitigate the operational difficulties posed by the pandemic. On the other hand, those organizations that are yet to come on board with these technologies would also stand to gain these benefits, the sooner they adopt these solutions.
