Teledyne Gas and Flame Detection and its partner in the UAE, Al Masood Oil Industry Supplies and Services, have been awarded a significant contract that involves the adoption of wireless gas detection technologies as part of the Hail and Ghasha sour gas development project being coordinated by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc).
'As a global leader in gas measurement, detection and signalling systems, Teledyne will bring significant safety benefits to the development of these important gas fields with its class-leading wireless solutions,' says Sudhakar Karkera, Regional Sales Leader, Gulf Region, Gas and Flame Detection.
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 15 m.
As part of the Adnoc project to develop these fields, Teledyne 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 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 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, industry operators can avoid compromising the health and safety of their teams.'
