PETROCHEM, OIL & GAS SECURITY SOLUTIONS
Companies in the oil and gas industry face a growing number of security challenges. Typical oil and gas installations cover huge geographic areas, and are often located in both onshore and offshore locations. These distributed sites are linked by networks of pipelines which are vulnerable to both hostile threats and natural disasters. A complete security solution must take into account the entire infrastructure—from the operating wellheads to oil refineries, headquarter buildings and offices, and distribution networks such as tanks, boats, and air transportation.
As security threats have accelerated, so has the growth of security data. Collecting data from all of your security equipment—cameras, card readers, and other access controls—and then managing it in an effective and efficient manner can be a huge challenge. Having a partner who understands both the business environment as well as the security technologies can be a significant advantage to any organization.
ARMO has the breadth and depth of security expertise to add value across the entire value chain in oil and gas enterprises, both for upstream production and downstream delivery.
New regulations have arisen over the past several years which call for oil and gas companies to enforce new operational standards to deter terrorist threats and security breaches. In 2007, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security passed Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) which impose comprehensive federal security regulations for high-risk chemical facilities. CFATS requires chemical facilities to prepare Security Vulnerability Assessments and develop and implement Site Security Plans. Another federal regulation passed in 2007 was the Transportation Worker Identification Credential program. IWIC is a vital security measure which ensures that individuals who will have unescorted access to secure areas such as ports, vessels, and other facilities are validated by tamper-resistant biometric credentials.
Given the increased threats, changing regulations, and proliferation of data growth, oil and gas companies are realizing the need to upgrade and advance their security strategies. With ARMO, you benefit from trained individuals who are familiar with both the security requirements and the oil and gas industry in your local country, so you are able to meet compliance requirements and business imperatives.
