How Real-Time Monitoring Saved the Day: A SOOFIE® SUCCESS STORY
Recently, SOOFIE® demonstrated its real-world effectiveness in a critical scenario.
On the evening of September 15, 2023, at 8:30 PM CST, a site glass broke at a production facility, resulting in a crude oil spill and over 90 kg/hr of methane escaping into the atmosphere. The SOOFIE® system, designed for real-time emissions monitoring, detected the increase in emissions and immediately alerted the operator through our Dashboard system.
Despite the late hour, an emergency response team was dispatched, reaching the facility within 90 minutes and successfully stopped the leak. The swift response not only averted a potential catastrophe but also prevented the continuous release of 90 kg of methane per hour. This incident highlights the critical role of innovative solutions like the SOOFIE® system in enhancing operational efficiency and environmental responsibility.
SOOFIE®, short for Stand-Off Optical Out-of-Flare Imaging Equipment, goes beyond traditional sensors. It signifies a commitment to proactive environmental protection and the latest innovation in emissions monitoring.
Our intricate network of strategically placed SOOFIE® sensors continuously monitors emissions, also harnessing data from anemometers to measure wind direction and concentration readings from the sensors. This synergy allows us to detect emission spikes in real-time, proactively prevent potential leaks, and gain valuable insights into your emissions profile.
