FLIR awarded for camera innovation
AT the recent Oil and Gas Methane Leadership Awards surrounding the Global Methane Forum in Toronto, Canada, FLIR received the Technology Innovation Award for its Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras, the FLIR GF320 and the new IS rated FLIR GFX320. The award, given by the Center for Clean Air Policy, the Clean Air Task Force, Environmental Defense Canada, the Environmental Defense Fund and the Pembina Institute, recognised FLIR for its leadership and innovation in the creation of gas detecting cameras that are used in the oil and gas industry to identify and stop fugitive gas emissions. The FLIR GF320 and GFX320 allow oil and gas field personnel to actually visualise fugitive methane emissions in a manner that is compliant with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s OOOOA methane rule. Using these gas cameras, the gas appears on the LCD screen looking like black or white smoke and enables oil and gas industry clients around the world to survey their oil and gas facilities up to nine times faster than with traditional methods. FLIR’S gas imaging technology has helped thousands of companies all over the world reduce their impact on the environment and made a positive impact on their bottom line. FLIR is committed to advancing innovation to save lives and livelihoods and was honoured to receive this award and help make a difference to stop fugitive gas emissions.
