Cutting Costs, Product Loss, and Downtime

FLIR optical gas imaging (OGI) cameras are used throughout the Oil and Gas industry to detect methane and other hydrocarbon emissions from the extraction, transmission, and processing of petroleum and natural gas. These cameras visualize hundreds of invisible gases, allowing inspectors, engineers, and maintenance crews to identify leaks safely without having to shut down critical systems.
