The application of modern information technologies in the oil and gas sector is constantly developing, which facilitates the acceleration of exploration and detection of oil, the increase in oil production and reduction in risks relates to health, human safety, and the environment. The Internet of things in the oil and gas sector, like in all sectors of industry, has great prospects from an economic point of view. The article is devoted to the study of the current state and avenues of solving key problems of effective and reliable functioning of the oil and gas industry as a cyber-physical system using the Internet of things in the Azerbaijani oil company SOCAR. The main technological processes and existing opportunities for the application of information technologies in the oil and gas complex are analyzed. New approaches are proposed to solve the problems in the oil and gas complex as cyber-physical system based on the smart sensors, the Internet of things, wireless networks and cloud technologies. The implementation of the proposed model is aimed at increasing the effectiveness, resource storage, exploration reliability and durability of the oil and gas complex.
