There are many inherent risks associated with production and processing of oil and gas. Exposure to hazards are common as drilling and processing work releases toxic chemicals, fumes or combustible gases into the atmosphere or work environment. To protect people, property and the environment, proper detection of gas and flame hazards is critical.
