Oil & Gas

The oil & gas industry is one of the most dangerous sectors to work in because of the numerous gas hazards and safety concerns at extreme conditions. For this reason, the handling and detection of dangerous gases is essential to prevent explosions, fire or equipment failure.

Whether you’re working downstream or upstream in drilling, production, production, transportation, and storage, the same gas dangers are present which is why it’s important to prepare for gas and flame hazards with an effective gas detection program!


There are many dangers associated with the task of oil and gas exploration. High concentrations of toxic gases and VOCs such as Benzene or 1,3-Butadiene.

Perimeter Monitoring

Continuous area monitoring for toxic gases can protect people and property inside a perimeter. Mapping technology helps to minimise risk and can control the dispersing of gases to prevent causing a nuisance to the surrounding areas.

Leak Detection

Leak detection equipment in the form of fixed gas and flame detection systems should be used around pressurised pipes and valves. In windy conditions, acoustic gas detection is the most effective gas detection. Instruments must stand up to corrosion and the extreme weather conditions.

Shutdown & Maintenance

Shutdown and maintenance works include hot works, welding, cleaning, and painting. Area gas monitors are the obvious choice for setting up a temporary safety zone in maintenance areas. If gas or dust levels are high and unavoidable, respiratory protection must be worn.

Plant Safety & Operations

Whilst workers wear personal gas detectors, a network of fixed area monitors for gas, flame and fire are required to protect workers and property onboard an oil rig.

One Stop Shop for all Gas Monitoring Equipment and Training

The Oil and Gas sector is largely inaccessible by land. Deliveries of safety equipment or gas detection equipment must be timely to meet a helicopter or ship. a1-cbiss work closely with oil and gas companies to support them with all their gas monitoring needs and delivered just in time.

Case Study - CO2 In Breweries

Learn about the hidden dangers of carbon dioxide (CO2) in breweries and the essential measures to ensure safety. Uncontrolled levels of CO2 can lead to severe health hazards, even suffocation, making proper monitoring absolutely crucial. Discover how the accumulation of CO2 during fermentation and storage processes can create hazardous pockets. Implementing a comprehensive gas detection system, including fixed CO2 sensors and personal detectors, is crucial to protect brewery personnel.

Case Study - a1-cbiss Engineer a Brewery Carbon Dioxide Monitoring System

Discover how a1-cbiss helped two major breweries in the UK ensure health and safety compliance with a tailored Carbon Dioxide monitoring system. With elevated CO₂ levels during fermentation, a1-cbiss designed a solution using advanced gas detection technology. The system provides visual warnings, integrates with ventilation systems, and offers real-time data acquisition and reporting.
