Teledyne FLIR to Showcase Oil & Gas Market Solutions at SPE Offshore

By Matt Williams -

Teledyne FLIR will use its appearance at SPE Offshore Europe 2023 (Aberdeen, UK, 5-8 September) to shine the spotlight on its comprehensive and industry-proven array of optical gas imaging (OGI) camera solutions for the oil and gas market.

These advanced cameras help users to detect methane, sulphur hexafluoride and hundreds of other industrial gases quickly, accurately and safely, without shutting down systems. Teledyne FLIR OGI cameras can scan broad sections of equipment rapidly and detect leaks from a safe distance, displaying these invisible gases as clouds of smoke.

Also with a notable presence on the stand (2L84) will be Aberdeen-based Inspectahire, Teledyne FLIR’s authorised regional distributor and training provider for OGI. All Inspectahire instructors are FLIR ITC (Infrared Training Center) approved and have a minimum of 10 years working in oil and gas environments, using FLIR OGI camera systems extensively for applications such as baseline surveys and LDAR (leak detection and repair). Inspectahire courses are ideal for any LDAR technicians who inspect valves, connectors, flanges, compressors and closed vent systems, for example.

At SPE Offshore Europe, Teledyne FLIR and Inspectahire will not only be answering any questions about OGI inspection and training, but also providing insight into some of FLIR’s most pertinent and proven solution for the oil and gas market.

For instance, FLIR G-series OGI cameras such as the Gx320, G620 and Gx620 feature gas quantification analytics to measure leak type and severity, eliminating the need for a secondary device. G-series cameras detect hydrocarbons, methane (CH₄) and other VOC emissions from multiple stages of the oil and gas supply chain using a thermal resolution of up to 640 × 480 (307,200 pixels).

For those seeking a fixed-mount, continuous monitoring solution, SPE Offshore Europe 2023 will provide an opportunity for visitors to see a system that combines the FLIR GF77a uncooled autonomous leak detection camera and ADGiLE technologies. With multiple lens options, this affordable, fixed camera solution provides upstream and midstream gas processors, producers and operators with the features they need to monitor for potentially dangerous, invisible methane leaks on a continuous basis.

Also on the stand will be a FLIR Cx5 thermal camera rated for use in hazardous locations. Certified for deployment in many explosive (ATEX) environments, the Cx5 eliminates the need to acquire hot work permits due to gas, vapour and dust, while making T-Class surveys fast and straightforward. The 3.5-inch touchscreen interface is easy to navigate, while a thermal resolution of 160 × 120 offers precise temperature measurement of nearby targets. The integral FLIR Ignite™ cloud service provides direct data transfer, storage and back-up so that images remain constantly available from all user devices.

Ultimately, visitors to SPE Offshore Europe will learn how advanced Teledyne FLIR solutions can help the oil and gas industry maintain valuable capital equipment, avoid product loss, meet emissions reduction metrics and ensure safer work practices.
