Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas

Despite trends toward renewable energy and “clean tech”, oil and natural gas remain the lifeblood of modern civilization.

Oil and gas infrastructure – from extraction, to refining and processing, to pipeline transmission and distribution – utilizes some of the largest, most powerful, and potentially noisy equipment of any industrial sector. Processes such as hydro-cracking, distillation, isomerization, liquefaction and regasification involve large scale compressors, furnaces, gas-turbines, fan-cooled heat exchangers, and large-scale evaporative cooling systems. The location of these facilities is also constrained by the geography of incoming feedstock or outbound distribution channels, such that this large scale infrastructure often needs to coexist in otherwise quiet environments, close to noise-sensitive communities.
