Ultrasonic Gas Leak Detectors for Kashagan Project

Feb 06 2008

Gassonic A/S (Denmark) has won an order for a major part of the safety system in the giant Kashagan Project in Kazakhstan, the largest oil and gas development project in the World.

Gassonic was the pioneer of ultrasonic gas leak detection and is today the global market leader in manufacturing specialised detectors that use ultrasound to detect hydrocarbon gas leaks. The detectors are being integrated as a vital part of the safety systems in oil & gas projects where pressurised gas is present. Themajor problem facing conventional gas detection technologies is that they need the leaking gas to build up a concentration and come into physical contact with the sensor. This in turn means that a very long time may pass before an alarm is triggered. Gassonic’s acoustic gas leak detectors will, on the other hand, detect
gas leaks at the speed of sound as this technology does not require the gas to come into physical contact with the detector. Nor are the detectors affected by challenging environmental conditions such as changing wind directions and fast gas dilution, conditions surrounding most oil & gas installations - including the ones in the Kashagan Project.

The response time of a gas detection system is of the highest priority as time is a key deciding factor in preventing a dangerous gas leak fromaccumulating into an explosive gas cloud. According toManaging Director Mr.Martin T. Olesen, Gassonic A/S is strongly positioned in the international oil & gas market and this order for the Kashagan Project will further emphasise the company’s position in the market for fast and reliable gas detection.
