The future is bright!  Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) are now by-words of all modern industry ... yes, even in the oil industry!  Every refinery and petrochemical plant uses these tools to optimize operations with smaller work forces to generate higher profits.  It's literally "more with less"! 

Using AI and IoT tools we developed the industry's first true fully automated AI controlled and operated crude oil dehydration system.  Then, unwilling to stay stagnant, we developed a second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth generation of L-POD's. The latest, L-POD Generation-6, embodies the most efficient oil dehydration method: dual polarity electrostatic crude oil dehydration technology.  This is the same process used in every refinery to process inlet crude, and L-POD does it without any human intervention.  L-POD is the future ... but you can get yours NOW!

Oilfield fires are devastating!  They are also preventable!!  The fact is that open thief hatches are a major cause of most oilfield tank battery fires.  Keeping all thief hatches closed at all times can prevent many of them.  

Grounding is another chief issue, particularly as we place more and more tank batteries on insulating vinyl containment liners.  These electrically insulate tank bottoms from grounded earth, which can create un-grounded structures which can accumulate static charges.  When these static charges discharge across an open thief hatch, or unprotected gas vent line, where flammable gas and the oxygen in air mix, the static discharge completes the third leg of the fire triangle.  What happens next is well known to us all ... fire, then explosion, and destroyed facilities. 

Proper grounding, flame and detonation arrestors on vent lines, and closed thief hatches should be the order of the day in all facilities ... both old and new!
