Lightning: The Underestimated Threat and Unnecessary Risk
Know your Enemy – Plan, Prepare and Prevent
PLAN - Understand how lightning works and what the future holds for this erratic weather event: Learn the most current information available with regard to lightning protection; its origins, its occurrence and anticipated future behavior. Learn the most current technical information available with regard to how electrical storms are developed. What impacts and determines the lightning discharge process and most importantly what determines lightning termination risk. In addition how this lightning event can impact your facility whether this be from a direct lighting strike to the structure/tank of concern or even a nearby lightning strike.
PREPARE - Hear the facts and best practices in line with the repercussions of our evolving weather patterns: Learn how several of the largest exploration, petroleum and chemical companies have prepared and prevented lightning disasters. Lightning is unpredictable no matter where one is located. If lightning is present, you, your employees, and your assets are at risk. Learn about Lightning protection “Best Practices” and solutions implemented around the world with over a 99% success rate. Join us as we discusses the most reliable and comprehensive solutions available to protect your facility from lightning devastation.
PREVENT - Discuss the exploration, petroleum and chemical industries’ means of lightning protection: The Earth’s weather is changing in line with changes to the climate and atmosphere. Lightning events are seemingly on the rise in places where lightning has historically been scarce, but regardless, lightning is a threat as long as it exists or strikes where your facility is located. Locations that have not experienced large amounts of lightning in the past, such as Oregon and the UK, are experiencing more and those that are used to frequent lightning are finding weather events to be more severe. Those areas that are subject to frequent lightning, such as the Oklahoma, Kansas and the Gulf Coast are finding an increase in intensity and frequency resulting in disaster.
Lightning: Fact, Fiction and Protection - A session which focuses on the aspects and recent data collected on lightning as a weather event and Lightning Protection “Best Practices” based on over 43 years of successful installations worldwide and throughout the Petroleum and Chemical Industries.
