REMOTE MONITORING SOLUTIONS THAT SAVE LIVES

Remotely Monitor Gas Detection Equipment

The patented Shepherd System is designed to save lives using innovative remote monitoring technology that revolutionizes gas detection at every level of the oil and gas industry, from exploration to production to transportation to the refinery.

Check out the examples below:

How our system works.

Our fully connected safety network begins with the Shepherd Mobile Controller, which is installed under the vehicle seat. With integrated GPS and satellite connectivity, the Mobile Controller becomes the lone worker’s life-line to off-site emergency help. The worker wears a Shepherd Personal H2S Monitor that provides a constant stream of communication back to the Mobile Controller, and alerts others if a dangerous levels of H2S gas are detected. Further protection can be achieved by placing a Shepherd Wireless H2S Detector on each tank battery, allowing pre-emptive warning of hazardous gas before the worker is in harm’s way.

The real difference in the Shepherd System lies in the Shepherd Remote Monitoring Service (RMS). By tracking real-time data, workers and equipment are protected from H2S and LEL gases in a much more systematic way. Not only can hazardous situations be avoided, but when they do occur, reaction time is drastically reduced, and life-saving decisions can be made with far greater efficiency.

How our system works.

On any drilling rig, hazardous gas emissions can become treacherous or explosive extremely quickly. That’s why the Shepherd System provides constant monitoring of both workforce and equipment. Shepherd Personal Monitors (PM) are worn by workers and Shepherd H2S / LEL Detectors are strategically placed to monitor air in the vicinity of the drilling equipment. Each wireless detector sends data back to the Shepherd Controller, which relays the data to the Shepherd Remote Monitoring Service (RMS) via satellite, WiFi or Ethernet. The RMS is available via laptop or mobile device for real-time decision making.

By communicating accurate situational awareness, workers are protected from H2S and other explosive gases in a much more timely and systematic way. Now, both hardware and software work in tandem to protect your people and prevent unnecessary down-time.

How our system works.

In many workover and completion scenarios, H2S and explosive gases can become treacherous or explosive extremely quickly. That’s why the Shepherd System provides constant monitoring of both workforce and equipment. Shepherd Personal Monitors (PM) are worn by workers and Shepherd H2S / LEL Detectors are strategically placed to monitor air in the vicinity of the equipment. Each wireless detector sends data back to the Shepherd Controller, which relays the data to the Shepherd Remote Monitoring Service (RMS) via satellite, WiFi or Ethernet. The RMS is available via laptop or mobile device for real-time decision making.

The Shepherd Wireless H2S / LEL Detector, H2S Detector and PM all feature Lockout/Tagout capabilities, and the PM continues to function as a personal sensor while the internal radio is disabled.

How our system works.

Refining petroleum products is a highly-complex process involving numerous hazardous scenarios. Shepherd Systems is developing technology to protect workers in facilities where H2S is a known risk. The Shepherd System hardware can be combined to create custom solutions suiting any refinery’s needs. Shepherd Personal Monitors (PM) and Wireless H2S / LEL Detectors communicate with the Shepherd Controller to form an evolving network of real-time sensor data that is synthesized by the Remote Monitoring Service on the control room computers and mobile devices to enable timely responses by first responders and decision makers.

As with the other scenarios, Mobile Controllers to can be added to protect the trucks that deliver crude oil to the refinery.

We put integrated monitoring on the map.

The Shepherd difference lies in our comprehensive remote monitoring. Wireless personal monitors, fixed rig sensors, field units and alarms, all communicate with the head unit, which in turn, relays data around-the-clock to a satellite. The satellite feed reports hourly on sensor status—and instantly in the event of an alarm—directly to smart phones and the computers of your choosing.

The result? Less down time, more productivity, and no needless loss of life.

Whether your fields have H2S present, or you are a lone worker in need of protection—with the unique Shepherd System, Hydrogen Sulfide has taken its last life.
