FLIR OGI Camera Helps Oil and Gas Company Reduce Operating Costs by 35 Percent

Fugitive emissions and hydrocarbon leaks at an oil and gas site can cause devastating explosions if they’re not caught early. It’s not only a risk to the facility, but the surrounding community. That’s why an upstream oil and gas company in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin of Colorado demanded an efficient and remote way to monitor their oil pads 24/7. The company drills on approximately 300 oil pads in the DJ Basin, all located in populated areas near homes and schools. If they missed a leak at one of their oil pads or caught it too late, the company would be forced to evacuate thousands of people. The company approached Twin Eagle Consulting for help developing a custom leak-detection system.
