Oil and Gas Processing

Protecting plant, personnel, communities and the environment

The oil and gas industry value chain is comprised of 4 major activities: upstream exploration and production, midstream gas processing and gathering, downstream refining, and transportation through pipelines and trucking terminals. All these processes are highly complex and pose many safety management considerations.

There are many sources of risk across these various activities such as exposure hazardous gases, extreme temperature and dangerous environmental conditions that threaten the safety of both assets and personnel.

Gas leak Detector for Oil and Gas Industry
Drilling and Production

Potential exposure of workers to a variety of combustible and toxic gases.

Gas leak Detector for Oil Drilling
Oil and Petrochemical Processing

Hazardous gas build up in confined areas of refineries and plants.

Gas leak Detector for Oil Processing

Leakage of hazardous gases during transportation pose the risk of explosions or driver asphyxiation.

Flame and Gas Hazard Detection

A well-designed flame and gas detection program is critical, not just for protecting facilities and personnel, but the surrounding community and environment as well. This will require gas detectors that connect to controllers capable of issuing alarms and taking appropriate remediating actions before a minor leak or flame escalates to a major event.

Automation and Integration Strategies

A comprehensive alarming and remediation strategy needs to be supported by a complete integration strategy. Flame and gas detection systems need to connect to a controller that integrates with a facility’s Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC), or the Building Management System (BMS). This not only allows employees to be alerted to potential hazards, but enables rapid hazard mitigation, such as increasing ventilation in enclosed areas.
