As experts in oil and gas logistics, at SGS we understand the risks involved in operating and performing maintenance in hazardous environments where combustible materials may be present.
The Need for a Gas Freeing Service
Whether you are conducting regular maintenance, hot work, cold work or construction within tanks, lines, barges or vessels, the safety of your infrastructure and personnel is of paramount importance. Our gas free inspections allow your staff to operate in a safe environment, ensuring that the status of all enclosed spaces is properly assessed and monitored and enabling the issue of a permit-to-work as part of standard safety procedures.
SGS provides expert supervision of purging and conditioning in preparation for loading and gas-freeing operations of bulk liquid tankers and chemical gas and LNG carriers. This supervision involves close monitoring of all physical parameters, such as oxygen and gas content, dew point, pressure and temperature. We will also manage all aspects of the final analytical testing and certification of the tank atmospheres to determine that these have been purged or gas-freed to the required specifications.
SGS is a world leader in providing innovative solutions across all areas of the oil and gas industry. Our unique mix of local knowledge and global intelligence is unmatched across the industry, helping us to improve efficiency, reduce risk and deliver competitive advantage for you.
