The article discusses the unique challenges that the presence of hydrogen sulfide toxic gas in oil and gas fields creates for operators. It goes on to mention the launch of the Air Qruise™ Electro-Ex at the 2014 Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference.
Our Safety Trends report, which gives safety practitioners a better overview of the challenges, opportunities, and new developments shaping the global Oil and Gas industry featured in SPE’s HSE Now.
This Air TreQ™ Escape system is designed to provide personnel with breathing air and mobility, to ensure safe evacuation from muster point to safe zone during an emergency.
In order to ensure personnel and community protection United Safety used appropriate gas dispersion and heat flux models in different release scenarios involving a wide range of weather conditions to identify safe locations and modes of operation for flare stacks and burner pits near two well sites.
United Safety successfully conducted dispersion modeling that mapped satellite topography data from a 1-arcsecond (750 m2) grid resolution into a QRA that identified the largest risk sources and determined practical solutions to make well operations safer.
