Safety remains a perennial issue for the oil and gas industry. The implications of failing to detect gas leaks can impact the environment and workers' health, along with incurring significant financial losses if a site has an unplanned shutdown. Therefore, ensuring the safety, integrity, and reliability of plants and pipelines is mission-critical.
With the oil and gas sector under continued pressure to increase efficiencies and control costs, many are turning to wireless automation. This has seen plants look for ways to modernize aging infrastructure and many have started to automate the process instrumentation layer. However, when it comes to gas detection, it's lagging behind with many plants relying on traditional fixed detectors or providing workers with a portable detector!
