Oil & Gas

Noise and vibration fill the environment of oil and gas installations, however excessive levels of either can be detrimental to personnel’s health and safety, and the reliability and efficiency of machinery.  Maintaining satisfactory vibration levels is therefore not only desirable but vital for running a sustainable and viable site. 

The quantity, complexity, and interactions of the many vibration sources typically found on an installation immediately provides challenges, predicting interactions and establishing the root cause of a vibration may be non trivial.  By applying Xi’s extensive range of techniques of measurements and modelling Xi can shed light and discover the core of issues allowing solution approaches to be designed that minimise the exposure to noise and vibration.

Xi work both at onshore and offshore facilities and, as well as diagnosing and resolving issues, can assist with establishing condition monitoring routines, or resolving challenges identified from existing monitoring routes.

For each project, Xi assesses client’s vibration concerns on the specific project’s merits. Utilising any or all of Xi’s core measurement and modelling skills Xi can be relied upon to provide understanding and resolution.
