Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection wins wireless project

MPEX MCXTeledyne Gas & Flame Detection and its partner in the UAE Al Masood Oil Industry Supplies and Services Co have been awarded a contract that adopts wireless gas detection technologies as part of the Hail and Ghasha sour gas development project

The project is being coordinated by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection is expected to bring significant safety benefits to the development of these important gas fields with its class-leading wireless solutions.

The Hail and Ghasha gas fields sit off the north coast of the UAE, close to the Bu Tinah archipelago of islands. The fields lie in shallow waters with depths varying from 0 to 15m. As part of the ADNOC project to develop these fields, Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection will supply, install and commission a range of its latest technologies in gas sensing, including its wireless MCX-32 integrated alarm and control system, wireless Site Sentinel Site alarm and control system, CX SmartWireless gas detection sensors, BM-25 wireless multi-gas area monitors, and NEMA 7-rated wireless X-40 alarm and control system.

Aside from the capabilities of its solutions, the appointment of Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection to the project centred on the company’s dedication to safety, backed by more than 100 years of gas detection experience.

The Hail and Ghasha project is sizeable and will see the construction of artificial islands for the drilling of wells, the support of production facilities, and for an offshore operations and maintenance base. In total, 11 islands will emerge from the Persian Gulf, along with the Bu Tinah Jetty, Bu Tinah Center building and navigation channels providing safe access to the islands.

As part of such a major development project, the reliability of products is critical. By using a reputable expert such as Teledyne Gas & Flame Detection, industry operators can avoid compromising the health and safety of their teams. Based on a relationship-focused business model, the company prioritises the protection of assets, operations, the environment and, most importantly, lives.
