Oil & Gas
Natural gas and oil are important sources of energy. Before they can be put to use, they must be extracted, stored and distributed. Each of these processes is hazardous and noisy. To protect workers in the oil and gas industry, safe cabins, protective access engineering and noise control provide a solution. Sound reduction is also important to neighbouring residents in densely populated areas and of course for the environment in quiet areas. Indeed, this is where most of the installations are constructed.
Noisy machines and installations are used for the extraction, storage and distribution of oil and gas. Booster and compressor stations where this equipment is installed must meet high sound standards. Merford counteracts the noise made by compressors and pumps with sound insulating housings and other turnkey solutions. Our project managers guide the entire process, from sound measurement to final assembly. Noise control is the main goal, but we naturally also keep a sharp eye on explosion safety, fire safety, ease of maintenance and excellent ventilation. All of our solutions, onshore as well as offshore, comply with the applicable standards in the oil and gas industry.
Safety is also a primary concern for Merford in the manufacture of doors for this industry. Because we are so dependent on oil and gas, and because these processes carry such high risk, good protection is of major importance in this sector. Merford’s explosion-proof, fireproof and burglarproof doors provide this protection. Soundproof and airtight are other properties that we can incorporate into the design. Seawater-tightness naturally plays a role in offshore applications, such as drilling platforms.
Offshore: operator cabins
The cabin operator’s task on a drilling platform is difficult at best and their attention must consistently remain focused on their work. A proper posture, the best possible operating options and an optimal viewing angle are of essential importance for cabins in the offshore sector. Merford Cabins develops, manufactures and supplies cabins that fully comply with the norms and standards that apply in the offshore sector.
