Published on

Offshore facilities – living quarters turn around of occupant is very frequent, leaving little time to clean and disinfect the environment.
Offshore food storage – food supplies are sent in bulk. (Need to be kept in a clean environment to avoid them from getting contaminated fast).
24/7 manned control room (must be kept clean/sterilized at all times).
Absenteeism due to health condition - results in reduced productivity.

This presentation shows how to solve the problems through a simple and relatively inexpensive UVC systems.

Improving Indoor Air Quality for Safety in Oil & Gas Industry

  1. 1. The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence
  2. 2. O & G SCENARIOS • Offshore facilities – living quarters turn around of occupant is very frequent, leaving little time to clean and disinfect the environment.
  3. 3. O & G SCENARIOS • Offshore food storage – food supplies are sent in bulk. (Need to be kept in a clean environment to avoid them from getting contaminated fast).
  4. 4. O & G SCENARIOS • 24/7 manned control room (must be kept clean/sterilized at all times).
  5. 5. O & G SCENARIOS • Absenteeism due to health condition - results in reduced productivity.
  6. 6. Offshore ventilation • Positive pressure • Safety • recirculated air being used. OFFSHORE/ONSHORE INDOOR CLIMATE/HVAC SYSTEM Pressure to be kept 25-50 pa over the outside ambient pressure.
  7. 7. ISSUES / PROBLEMS AT O&G FACILITIES Over-pressure principle (positive pressure) Stale air in accommodation Quarters, offices, kitchen Quarters & control Rooms Resulting in a build up and habitation of fungus, bacterial, and mold. Pressure to be kept 25-50 pa over the outside ambient pressure STALE AIR!
  8. 8. STAGES OF INFECTIOUS DROPLETS & DROPLET NUCLEI
  9. 9. INFECTIOUS DROPLETS & DROPLET NUCLEI TRAVEL LENGTHS
  10. 10. ISSUES / PROBLEMS Offshore living quarters with IAQ issues / problems • Poor ventilation • Stale odor • High turn around of occupant - hard to keep it clean
  11. 11. ISSUES / PROBLEMS Control rooms / office etc. with IAQ issues / problems • Poor ventilation • Stale odor • Contamination from occupants
  12. 12. THE FACTS The US EPA (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) states that poor indoor air quality is one of the top five environmental risks to public health.
  13. 13. THE FACTS Indoor air pollution is a SILENT THREAT. You are more likely to get sick from pollution in your home and office than from pollution in the air outside.
  14. 14. THE FACTS We actually spend 90% of our time indoors in average. Spending time Indoor outdoor INDOOR 90% OUTDOOR 10%
  15. 15. THE FACTS All cleaning and scrubbing only works on surface, air need to be sterilized and disinfected.
  16. 16. Spread of airborne related diseases EFFECTS FROM POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY
  17. 17. EFFECTS FROM POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY Exposure to harmful chemicals such formaldehyde from paint and cigarette smoke
  18. 18. Developments of mold, fungi and mildew EFFECTS FROM POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY
  19. 19. EFFECTS FROM POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY Long and repetitive illness due to source of disease is not looked into
  20. 20. Unhealthy environment for the people with allergic problems EFFECTS FROM POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY
  21. 21. EFFECTS FROM POOR INDOOR AIR QUALITY Increase in cost and expenses due to medical fees, cleaning, maintenance
  22. 22. EU & WHO AIR QUALITY GUIDELINES The WHO guidelines for indoor air quality, developed under the coordination of WHO/Europe, address three groups of issues that are most relevant for public health:
  23. 23. THE FACTS
  24. 24. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL • It is our unique product - a low cost method for evaluating controlling and improving indoor environment quality for the prevention of bacteria, yeast and mold. LEO 3 LEO 2 LEO 1
  25. 25. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL • It is a proactive approach toward ensuring proper indoor air quality assurance.
  26. 26. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL • It involves procedures for the performance of indoor air quality testing and inspections. • It involves training requirements and guidelines for handling emergencies. • It supplies standards for acceptable indoor air quality.
  27. 27. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL • It involves procedures for the performance of indoor air quality testing and inspections.
  28. 28. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL It supplies standards for acceptable indoor air quality.
  29. 29. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL Contents and Scope • Surveys and assessments. • Measurements of volatile compounds and particles from building materials and furnishings. • Ventilation, evaluations and remediation.
  30. 30. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL Contents and Scope • Problem solving. • Air cleaning filters.
  31. 31. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL Contents and Scope • Reevaluation and measurement of VOC and particles. • Emergency response to IAQ. Reevaluation & Measurement Response Feedback
  32. 32. IAQ SOLUTIONS PROTOCOL Contents and Scope Investigation of complaints
