Thermal imaging cameras are widely used throughout the oil and gas industry as preventative maintenance tools that help spot leaks in tanks, pipelines and facilities thereby improving safety, profitability and minimizing emissions with less risk of business interruption due to actions from regulatory agencies.
The following document compares some of the digital cameras used in the oil & gas industry.

RedLook functionality Spill Detection offers industry an advanced solution to detect surface liquid. Based on leak emissivity characteristics and temperature difference, small size leaks are detected in real time.
Traditional monitoring systems for pipelines and mining industry cannot detect small leaks early enough. RedLook Spill Detection functionality detects and alerts on small leaks and spills as they occur.
- Typical performance: 10 cm2 spills can be detected from 50m
- Unmanned monitoring of well pads
Silent Sentinel https://silentsentinel.com/
Our product portfolio consists of short to long range thermal cameras, HD and 4K visible cameras, ultra-low light cameras, and accompanying technologies including SWIR, laser ranger finders, illuminators, gyro stabilisation and more.
In particular, we are specialists in long range uncooled (LWIR) thermal cameras, and manufacturing multi sensor platforms. However, we also provide Cooled (MWIR) thermal cameras, allowing us to meet demanding requirements.
Furthermore, our cameras are designed to meet the harsh and challenging environments associated with the protection of critical infrastructure. Examples include transport hubs, maritime security, border and perimeter security, as well as military applications.

Oil and Gas producers have to take on a range of responsibilities, from detecting leaks to meeting environmental regulations, maintaining site security and system integrity. How companies address these issues often depends upon whether they are upstream, midstream, or downstream producers. Read on to learn about Oil and Gas applications and the FLIR products that can help inspectors, managers, and technicians solve problems quickly and avoid expensive shutdowns.
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.
