A safe, secure, and peaceful environment, is something most organizations will strive
for, but the reality may at times be different. The same reality applies to the Oil and
Gas sector operating in regions where terrorist and criminal activities pose a serious
threat. This presentation is meant for an audience in the Oil & Gas industry with
activities in high-risk areas.
When operating in these difficult conditions, whether during construction or
operations, the adequate protection of people, equipment, and infrastructures is
paramount. The question is not should we protect, but how we should protect? The
answer is not obvious and there may be many answers to that question.
In today’s security market, many suppliers offer a wide range of products; some
being great, others somewhat good, and the remainder in great need of
improvement. So how can we ensure the selection of the right security equipment fit
while ensuring that it will be efficient? You may only know this after several years of
trials and errors, large amounts of money invested, and the unfortunate possible
outcome of loss of lives, material, and production.
We believe the key is a fully integrated solution. We, as experts in Security solutions,
know that it can only be initiated through a rigorous design process, assisted by a
knowledgeable integrator, and the use of powerful state-of-the-art software.
The goal of this paper is to demonstrate that it is possible to significantly improve the
process of designing, implementing, and operating a fully integrated security solution
by choosing the right people, the right tools, the right equipment, and mostly, the
proper product match. We will present this concept and explain the different steps to
reach an effective integrated security solution that will allow an enhanced protection
for your people, your equipment, and your infrastructures, while keeping operations
running whether in downstream, midstream, or upstream sectors.
