Lightning is an issue for every industry, but when it strikes facilities in the oil and gas industry, it can cause problems that range from direct damage to facility downtime to surges that destroy expensive equipment.
As we recently discussed, Lightning Eliminators & Consultants, Inc CEO Avram Saunders spoke with members of the media who cover the oil and gas industry at the recent NAPE conference. Here you can see his interview with EnergyMakers TV host Russ Capper, where he discusses the issues related to lightning in the oil and gas industry.
In the interview, Avram outlines why lightning is a major problem that the industry must consider and how companies can protect themselves and their assets from substantial losses related to lightning strikes. He also discusses how lightning works, the different types of lightning protection, and how LEC’s patented Dissipation Array System™ (DAS) and Charge Transfer Technology (CTS) helps to eliminate the risk of lightning strikes.
