Driven by innovation, environmental sustainability, and customer and employee wellbeing, oil and gas organizations seek ways to lower operational risk, boost productivity and ensure workplace safety.
Asset protection and perimeter security are taken very seriously in the high-profile environments in which these businesses operate.
Pelco's real-time video surveillance solutions are essential for securing oil and gas facilities, as well as related assets.
These organizations seek platforms that gather intelligent data that drive not only security efforts but also business optimization whether the business is upstream, downstream or midstream.
We Have the Solutions
Pelco delivers security technologies that enable organizations to prevent, respond to and investigate security incidents quickly and efficiently. Critical data from open and scalable surveillance and security platforms enable users to proactively detect threats or anomalies, while identifying potential vulnerabilities. Integration with other security, IT and business systems, allows for easy expansion as facilities are added or security risks change.
Pelco solutions enable energy providers to gather intelligent data that drives operational efficiencies and supports machinery maintenance. Sensor alarms or readings can be visually confirmed using a camera, or in some cases, video analytics can be set up to detect certain conditions automatically. In cases of malfunction or damage, speeding up the detection, confirmation and response can make a big difference in minimizing the incurred repair costs as well as any service interruptions.
Innovative technologies help ensure the health and safety of employees, while simultaneously safeguarding infrastructure and assets from risks. At the same time, intelligent video management solutions help ensure compliance with government regulations.
Facility security managers monitor for unauthorized vehicles on watch lists that might pose a threat.
Sarix Fixed IP cameras capture sharp video of license plates in the toughest lighting conditions, including bright light, low light, and combination light. PlateSmart LPR integrated with VideoXpert notify security managers of unauthorized vehicles trying to access restricted areas immediately.
Oil and Gas plant pertimeters are often plagued with poor lighting conditions, unsecure boundaries along property borders and limited onsite personnel available to personally monitor the perimeter when an alarm is triggered.
With the use of VideoXpert VMS, with Xtralis IntrusionTrace perimeter detection software, plant operators can monitor both sides of the property line to provide situational awareness and advanced notice of suspicious activity. By integrating Pelco's thermal imaging cameras to this application, users can quick detect and identify if an intrusion is an animal that has triggered a false alarm, or a legitimate perimeter breach and requires immediate response.
Oil and gas companies are constantly looking for ways to improve the manufacturing process and increase safety, especially in hazardous areas of facilities.
ExSite explosion-proof cameras monitor the most hazardous environments possible without risking employee safety. VideoXpert VMS has an powerful, yet intuitive, user interface that ensures operators are always in control of the situation.
Flare systems require pilot flame confirmation for safe operation to confirm there is an ignition source for flared gases.
Sarix TI Thermal Imaging cameras record the heat signature of flames, regardless of the lighting conditions and even when the flame may be invisible to the naked eye because of its composition or low gas flow volume.
Oil and Gas facilities are critical national infrastructure that require restricted access. Access control alerts must be visually verified with video.
Access Control systems integrated with VideoXpert VMS provide real-time alerts for unauthorized access to facilities and restricted areas, while Sarix Fixed IP cameras capture crystal-clear video of the incident.
Cameras on offshore rigs must operate in extreme conditions including high vibration, high wind, saltwater, crashing waves, and ice build-up. Perimeters must be guarded from unauthorized access through the toughest lighting conditions.
ExSite Explosion-Proof cameras and Esprit Positioning Systems are engineered to thrive in harsh marine environments. Sarix TI Thermal Imaging cameras deliver excellent perimeter monitoring through bright sun glare on the water, the blackest nights, and fog.
Machinery that must be shut down for repairs results in significant losses to production. Likewise, leaks in equipment may pose safety threats to employees.
Sarix TI Thermal Imaging cameras with Thermography along with the Thermography plugin for VideoXpert detect overheated machinery, belts, and pulleys, and thermal leaks to alert operations managers to potential issues and increase operational uptime.
