Global surveillance solutions business Synectics is preparing to showcase its latest surveillance solutions at ADIPEC 2014
According to company officials, integration, IP networks and camera innovations are dominant trends affecting oil and gas surveillance in the Middle East. The energy production in the region is expected to expand by 37 per cent over the next 20 years. By 2035, the region’s share of global oil will reach 34 per cent. With
site expansions and new developments considered key to the growth of the economy,asset protection is of utmost importance. This has led to the emergence of different trends in the surveillance market.
Major projects in the region which would benefit from the latest solutions by Synectics include Shell Pearl GTL project, Phase II of IRP, BAB and ASAB, Shah Gas, Barzan and Karan.
Graham Ashley, business bevelopment manager of Synectics Middle East, said, “The Middle East oil and gas market is growing, and such a market has changing needs. Our Dubai hub puts us at the heart of these changes and gives us ‘on-the-ground’ insight into what new projects are demanding from their surveillance systems.”
Project are moving away from multi-system arrangements to surveillance command and external control solutions. These help unify and comprehend data from several sources for greater levels of awareness, according to Ashley. With IP networked surveillance, it opens up opportunities for third party integration with benefits like centralised surveillance of remote sites and reduced impact on site infrastructure.
“The theme of this year’s ADIPEC is Challenges and opportunities for the next 30 years. One of the biggest opportunities for Middle East oil and gas market is undoubtedly, working with the surveillance industry to develop solutions that meet changing needs and take advantage of new technological advancements.”
The need for surveillance has led to an increase in demand for high definition (HD) cameras. Ashley revealed that there is a need for HD camera stations with inbuilt IP capabilities that can transmit video signals to a surveillance command and control system. Accordingly, Synectics’ C3000 range was enhanced. In addition, the company will also be conducting at ADIPEC 2014 live demonstrations of its flagship surveillance solutions for the sector, including its evolved command and control platform, Synergy 3, and C-range of COEX PTZ camera stations including the C3000 high temperature model with HD/integrated IP, and the C2000 TriMode for day, night and thermal imaging.
