Anyone involved in the oil and gas sector is aware of the safety challenges the industry is facing. With road accidents topping the list of fatality causes in oil and gas, understanding how telematics can incorporate in vehicles to help improve safety and minimize road crashes is a hot topic for operators. The ORBCOMM team is looking forward to attending Gastech this month and sharing its in-depth knowledge of fleet safety in oil and gas.

Leading the global gas, LNG, and energy industry, Gastech has 45 years of experience in the market. The conference features some of the world’s leading industry speakers and an exhibit that will host over 35,000 industry professionals from 30 different sectors.
