How Optical Gas Imaging Benefits A Low-Carbon Economy And Corporate ESG Reporting
Optical gas imaging cameras are a versatile tool, promoting efficient facility operations and responsible corporate citizenship by quickly identifying gas leaks, confirming vented emissions, and accurately quantifying both.  Continue Reading..
Understanding OGI Detector Pixel Size: Bigger Can Be Better
While resolution has historically been a key specification when choosing infrared cameras, the choice is not black and white when applied to some oil and gas imaging applications.   Continue Reading..
FLIR And Enable Remote Tank Level Monitoring And Gas Detection
Colorado is a large producer of oil and gas in the United States, and the state’s new regulations mandate a higher level of emissions monitoring and environment protection. As a result, oil and gas producers in Colorado are turning to FLIR and for a smart solution that utilizes the benefits of thermal imaging and artificial intelligence for remote tank level monitoring and gas detection around the clock.  Continue Reading..
Make Leak Detection Safer At Pipelines, Tanks, And Industrial Plants
Safety should be the main concern for any operation that deals with potentially hazardous gases. Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) technologies offer the imaging solution for these companies while promoting a culture of safety. FLIR OGI cameras can be used in upstream and downstream oil and gas operations, along with power plants and other industrial facilities to help organizations meet their safety objectives.  Continue Reading..
NPL Testing Demonstrates The FLIR GF320 Meets EPA OOOOa Standards
In 2016, the US EPA implemented regulations for New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) in the Oil and Gas industry aimed at reducing methane emissions.  This regulation, NSPS 40 CFR Part 60 Subpart OOOOa (commonly referred to as OOOOa or “quad-O-a”), was reconsidered in the Trump administration with final rulings in September 2020 and these reconsiderations been overturned by Congressional Review Act in April 2021.  In the...  Continue Reading..
Upstream and Midstream Security: Perimeter Protection Using Thermal Detection With Analytics
There are many oil and gas companies that have to manage miles of gas lines and an extensive portfolio of real estate within their operations. As a solution, FLIR offers a number of wide-area coverage thermal and optical imagers with analytics that are able to cover wide areas to reduce the risk of site theft and vandalism.  Continue Reading..


FLIR offers the GF309 camera for use in high temperature industrial furnace applications, including monitoring all types of furnaces, heaters, and boilers in the chemical, petrochemical, and utility industries. By accurately measuring temperature across the entire surface, GF309 helps to inspect faster, work safer, and avoid shutdowns.

FLIR’s GFx320 OGI camera offers technology ideally designed to visualize fugitive hydrocarbon leaks at natural gas well sites, off-shore platforms, liquid natural gas terminals, and more. This camera allows for use in hazardous locations so that surveyors may work confidently while maintaining safety.

The FLIR GF77a is an uncooled thermal camera that is spectrally filtered for methane and other industrial gases. The camera can help maintain valuable capital equipment, avoid product loss, meet emissions reduction metrics, and ensure safer work practices by providing oil and gas facilities, gas transportation terminals, and power generation plants with continuous, autonomous leak detection.

The FLIR GF620 is an optical imaging camera designed to detect and visualize methane and other volatile organic compounds. This high-resolution, high-sensitivity camera features a 640 x 480 IR detector. It is also the first FLIR OGI camera to offer Quantification mode (Q-mode) for streamlined set-up of the optional QL320 gas quantification system.

The FLIR QL320™ is a quantitative optical gas imaging (qOGI) system that works solely with FLIR GF620, GFx320, and GF320 OGI cameras. With this technology, surveyors can measure mass leak rates or volumetric leak rates for most hydrocarbons. With usage capabilities at a variety of distances, operators can monitor hard to reach areas and storage tanks from a safe location.

The FLIR A6604 optical gas infrared imaging camera is designed for continuously scanning installations in remote areas or zones that are difficult to access. These cameras are widely used in industrial settings, such as oil refineries, natural gas processing plants, offshore platforms, chemical/petrochemical complexes, and biogas, and power generation plants. They are also able to detect harmful greenhouse gases that can seriously harm the environment.
