Mobile computing technology is arguably one of the most significant technological developments of this century. All over the world, there is a growing demand for mobility, which has brought significant change to how businesses are being run. Everybody wants access to information resources and services of a company wherever they are and whenever they want. It is against this background that this research was carried out to develop a mobile monitoring system using mobile computing technology to boost crude oil production in Nigeria by reducing the cost of production. This work places equipment failure reports on the lap of all the parties involved. It is no more necessary for servicing companies to visit rig or “company man’s” office before they can get the reports. Mobile phone can be used to access the database from anywhere. Since report is readily available, planning is made easy. The system was implemented using Wireless Markup Language (WML) on ColdFusion 4.5 as Common Gateway Interface (CGI). The testing was done using ccWAP phone emulator. The modular approach of programming which is a prominent feature of the modern system of programming was applied in the system design.
