Oil and gas companies invest in large-scale facilities for exploration, production, transportation and chemical manufacturing. Improving operational efficiency can significantly benefit the business. Hikvision provides oil and gas companies with intelligent and automated approaches and tools to collect operational equipment data, uncover potential equipment failures and hidden dangers, and help carry out preventive maintenance.
High-value explosion-proof and anti-corrosion cameras are used widely in the oil and gas industry for operational monitoring, as well as covering the upstream, midstream and downstream processes throughout the value chain:
A Hikvision CCTV system can seamlessly integrate with existing industrial control systems such as SCADA systems, adding an extra layer of visibility that makes it possible to gain awareness of assets and production processes remotely while minimizing downtime and costly on-site checks.
Hikvision equipment monitors temperatures of critical equipment every hour of every day. Our solution helps detect the corrosion of pipelines, tanks, and other storage equipment before oil or gas leaks occur. Users can make timely repairs before overheating to prevent damage and downtime. Liquid level detection measures the levels of oil & gas from afar in tank farms and oil tankers to guard against overflows or leakage.
Hazardous gases generated from hydro-carbon processing needs to be disposed of through flaring. Continuous temperature monitoring with thermal imaging perfectly suits this process. Alarms will be raised if a flame burns hotter or cooler than expected, or even stops altogether, thus mitigating the risk of explosion or other negative environmental impact.
Hikvision's solution brings more standardization to the entire transportation process. Companies can create schedules and assignments for drivers in advance with defined routes and delivery times, as well as keep track of the whole operation in real time through GPS and video monitoring. Post-event video recording serves as valuable evidence of incidents such as traffic accidents.
