Oil & Gas

Oil and natural gas are part of everyday life. Together, these fossil fuels represent 86 % of global energy demand. Products produced from oil and gas are used throughout the world as fuel (such as gasoline and diesel fuel), or as building blocks for the petrochemical and chemical industries. 
The process to extract, transportation, process and refine oil and gas is complex and wrought with danger to work¬ers and to assets. One of the most dangerous is the risk of fire or explosion due to the presence of flammable gases and liquids. Toxic gases and chemicals encountered throughout the processes add the risk of asphyxiation, burns, cancer and system corrosion. 
To reduce the risks to life, property or the environment, oil and gas companies follow mandatory safety practices. Portable and fixed gas detection systems, and flame detection systems play a critical role in monitoring the environ¬ment for hazards. Respiratory or other safety gear can then be provided to workers to keep them safe. 
The good news is that the oil and gas industry, as a result of understanding and addressing hazards through manda¬tory regulations, has fewer safety incidents today than in the past.
