Why to build warning systems in the oil and gas industry

Oil, gas and petrochemical companies extract, store, transport, and process highly flammable or explosive materials. The related risks of the occurrence of emergencies, such as explosions, fires, electrocutions, accidents, chemical leakages and the like, require the strict compliance with all safety measures and the building of modern warning and notification systems.

Thanks to a unique and innovative solution for the monitoring, warning, and notification of the external and internal areas in an oil refinery, you will obtain a reliable solution to improve the occupational and health safety of your employees and the civilians living in the surroundings of the refinery.

Description of the warning and notification solution for the oil and gas industry

The early warning solution suitable for an oil refinery is based on the analysis of typical hazards and their impacts. Following the analysis, either only the endangered operational units within the refinery area, such as oil rigs, drilling wells, or oil fields or also the surrounding areas are covered with an acoustic and visual warning signal.

These systems must meet the following three main objectives, i.e. they must be able to:

  • Monitor the occurrence of dangerous substances in the area and their concentration levels, as well as the meteorological conditions of the dispersal of such substances.
  • Notify the employees in an industrial plant of technological processes that pose a higher risk of explosion or fire.
  • Inform the employees and the civilians living in the surroundings of the refinery or oil well of an emergency or industrial accident, and of the relevant evacuation procedures.

 

The monitoring system
and sensors that

  • Are connected to the Amadeo PA centre or directly to the Pavianelectronic sirens
  • Monitor the condition of manufacturing technologies and the concentration levels of hazardous substances
  • Signal the exceeded maximum allowable values or the values outside the safe interval

The control and notification
centre

equipped with the Vektra® software applications (SCADA, Warning, and Notification) that:

  • In case of an increased risk of explosion or fire
    • Automatically activates the notification process or notifications can be sent locally by an operator in the control centre.
  • In case of an emergency or industrial accident
    • Automatically activates the warning operations, e. acoustic and visual warning signals
    • Automatically activates the notification process, e. informs the responsible persons/responders and the relevant institutions, and summons them urgently to their offices and rescue operations
  • Makes and keeps records of all communications in the main control centre for future analyses
  • Guarantees tight security thanks to 100 per cent secure back-up technology

 

The internal and external
Amadeo PA system whose units

  • Are installed in the individual operational units to provide early warning in several separate building parts
  • Work autonomously and respond locally to specific operational conditions
  • Can work independently irrespective of any potential failure in the control centre or communications breakdown
  • Are supplied together with 100 V sound distribution lines and loudspeakers for the sound transmission in the internal premises with common background noise levels or with loudspeakers for the sound transmission in noisy halls and external operational units
  • Beacons can be used for visual signalisation to improve the effectiveness of acoustic warning in noisy industrial units

The Pavian electronic sirens that

  • Produce a high acoustic pressure over a great distance
  • Ensure perfect intelligibility of live voice reproduction
  • Demonstrate their high reliability due to:
    • their full operability even in case of a power failure
    • their full functionality in extreme temperatures
    • advanced autodiagnostic functions
  • Allow using multiple power-supply methods
  • Provide communications with the control centre via radio and line communications channels

 

Communication infrastructure that

    • Ensures communications between the control centre and the other elements of the warning system
    • Allows the connection of the oil and gas early warning system to the superior national early warning system
