Remote Monitoring solutions in the oil & gas industry

The oil and gas industry is a sector where potential hazards are constantly present. These include plant explosions or leakage of poisonous gases. Therefore, providing a safe and well regulated environment is essential. Such hazards put the duty holders in a critical situation due to potential loss of life, resources and assets.


In production units, a gas detection tool is key to alert authorities about the presence of poisonous and flammable gases in the facility. Internet of Things (IoT) gas monitoring systems with remote and real-time tracking capabilities are perfect for this.


Smart Gas Monitoring Solutions


IoT is an advanced technology capable of creating networks of devices and machinery across a production line. In this network, the sensors, equipment, and assets can communicate without human oversight. Managers can use IoT devices to gain valuable data and analytical insights to improve their decision-making processes. Gas detection sensors are strategically installed at various locations in a production plant to ensure real-time data monitoring and alerts. The system notifies the necessary personnel via dashboards or notifications if a potential gas leak is detected.


Mega factories are most prone to hazardous explosions and human risks, and huge loss can result from gas leakage. To avoid such tragic incidents, managers should install advanced gas meters to get live, accurate information about unintended gas leaks in the factories.


Gas Monitoring Systems in the Oil and Gas Industry in use


  • Harmful Gas Detection

  • Oxygen Level Measurement

  • Fire Hazard Prevention

  • Environmental Concerns

Early detection of toxic gases such as Hydrogen Sulfide and Methane is important for avoiding dangerous leakages leading to poisoning or explosions. Gas leaks can be quickly detected by smart gas detection

solutions in manufacturing facilities

and commercial buildings.


A slight drop in oxygen levels can lead to brain injury or death in mines or closed processing plants. A gas monitoring system can ensure the correct oxygen levels are maintained. The gas sensors help monitor the distribution of hazardous chemicals in the atmosphere to prevent tragic outcomes. It also essential to ensure fire safety at workplaces. Prompt alerts can allow sufficient time to clear the facility before the workers' health is at risk.


The use of gas detection solutions also allows oil refineries to control toxic gas emissions. Refineries release various pollutants like particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and carbon monoxides into the atmosphere. Though refineries use different procedures to restrict the release of such pollutants, they also need a gas monitoring solution to ensure that pollution rates are controlled. Refinery managers can easily detect and control the volume of toxic gas emissions using IoT-based gas detection systems. They will help them stay aligned with environmental standards and restrict air degradation.
