Optical Gas Imaging (OGI)

Over the last few years, many oil & gas producers in the industry are making commitments to emissions reduction.

Making this commitment is an essential initial step in the right direction. The producers now have to establish a plan to meet these emissions reduction targets.

Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras, based on thermal imaging, are probably the best and most efficient technology for discovering and identifying emissions, which with tools such as analyzers may be overlooked.

Producers now realize more than ever that implementing OGI technology, like the EyeCGas 2.0, combines profitability with environmental accountability – it is the way of the future.

Companies in the oil and gas industry know that environmentally responsible inspections using OGI cameras contribute to the bottom line and ultimately profitability.

Once a company has discovered a leak using the EyeCGas 2.0, documented and quantified it using EyeCSite, they can efficiently report it. Subsequently, the company can implement solutions to reduce loss of income and provide the highest emission-reduction return – a win-win.

Companies that embrace the concept of emission reduction must acknowledge the effort is a long-term investment approach. What seems like a more expensive technological approach will improve the efficiency of the inspection over time. They will be able to inspect a lot more and faster while increasing ROI.

Worldwide regulations are becoming stricter, and OGI technology is becoming the tool of choice for LDAR inspections.

EyeCGas 2.0 is the world’s most sensitive handheld Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera. It identifies fugitive gas emissions for over 400 hydrocarbon and VOC gases, including Methane and CO2.

EyeCGas 2.0 is Intrinsically Safe and complies with the EPA’s “Quad Oa” (OOOOa) regulations.

EyeCGas 2.0 is used globally across the industry for LDAR compliance. It is certified and classified for hazardous environments ANSI/ISA-Class I and II, Div. 2, & Class III, CSA C22.2 Class I, Div. 2 and ATEX II, IECEx EMT 19.0006X as Intrinsic Safety “ic”, protection “n”.
