EMC & RF Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry
Oil and Gas
Electromagnetic interference (EMI) has significant safety and cost implications for the oil and gas industry. Issues arising from the presence of unintentional radio frequency (RF) energy in the inherently hazardous working environment can pose a significant threat to both personnel and revenue.
Designers of new technologies intended to better explore the sea bed and to improve the extraction of oil from existing wells can face significant challenges ensuring EMC compliance. Equipment frequently needs to measure small signals delivered over long length of cables in a harsh electromagnetic environment.
At York EMC Services (YES), we understand these issues and have many years of EMC design and testing experience to assist the oil and gas industry achieve compliance, increase reliability and reduce business risk.
