The Australian Energy Review - - APPEA -

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.
