Many energy sites including offshore oil and gas rigs operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year in some of the most demanding conditions in the world. In these harsh environments, it’s essential to protect personnel and critical equipment from fire and other hazards, while providing comfort for staff who work for weeks at a time. Carrier has the experience, expertise and solutions to help, including a full range of specialized, high-performance fire and gas protection products.
OIL & GAS
Statoil’s Johan Sverdrup oil field is one of the largest in Norway’s North Sea. To help protect this critical site, Statoil selected Autronica’s AutroSafe Integrated Fire and Gas Detection System.
As part of the agreement, Autronica provides AutroSafe fire and gas detection systems for the Johan Sverdrup oil field, with future options for installations at the nearby Johan Castberg, Peregrino and Snorre fields.
Shell’s Prelude is the world's largest floating liquefied natural gas vessel and the largest offshore facility ever constructed. At full load, it will displace over 600,000 metric tons of water, more than five times that of a Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.
A global supplier of liquefied natural gas, Prelude counts on a range of Carrier solutions to protect the process and living areas of the facility. These include Det-Tronics X3301 multispectrum flame detectors; Autronica addressable fire detection systems, smoke detectors and gas sampling; and Fireye marine-finish InSight II flame scanners.
Worldwide growth in the use of natural gas has increased the need to transport it – and the most economic method of transporting natural gas is in its liquefied form, or LNG.
At almost every stage of the liquefaction process, there are inherent risks of toxic or flammable gas leaks. As pioneers in the field of flame detection and protection systems, Det-Tronics is helping to mitigate these risks, protecting LNG processing and storage sites and transportation vessels with high-performance flame and gas detection and suppression systems.
Verbund is Austria's leading electricity company and one of the largest producers of electricity from hydropower in Europe.
At Verbrund's Kaprun Limberg II Hydro Power plant, a Marioff HI-FOG system capable of rapidly cooling large-scale fires protects three transformer rooms located inside the mountains. The whole system requires only a 9-cubic-meter water tank for the full 30-minute operation time.
