-- Surrounded by a lot of excitement, 2020 brought a promising start for the oil and gas industry, only to be tainted by a sudden economic crash at the end of Q1 due to the all-encompassing effects of the pandemic. The economic war between Russia and the Middle East, the COVID-19 virus, and travel restrictions all led to historically lowest oil prices, which affected other activities and industries with a drop in drilling activity.
However, the Canadian oil and gas industry was able to make certain gains in pipeline infrastructure. These developments, combined with upward pricing forecasts for natural gas, suggest 2021 activity should make a modest recovery from the 2020 collapse.
As per quality control in the oil and gas industry, COVID-19 proved that the current quality inspection methods are no longer well-suited and require digitization and other methods. Manual and traditional tools cannot provide the needed accuracy, repeatability and documentation. Digital measurement will help manage tolerance interplays between assemblies, provide a better means to the fabrication worker, increase the project owner's visibility into their communities' health without the need to travel and finally eliminate quality control as the bottleneck in fabrication shops.About ESQADA Software Development Corp.:
