Oil & Gas

Oil & Gas security is an increasing concern for many operations. Without efficient security tools, theft, vandalism and other damage can require lengthy and expensive repairs.

Oil & Gas Site Security

High-value oilfield equipment is a prime target for thieves, especially due to the remote nature and lack of security at most sites. From drilling sites and pipelines to saltwater disposal facilities and storage yards, operational assets are often scattered over hundreds or even thousands of miles with limited resources to address oilfield security or maintenance challenges in a cost-effective manner.

Security and automation solutions from Twenty20 Solutions allow you to monitor and react to threats and maintenance issues in real-time before a loss or breakdown occurs. Regardless of where your operations are located, with or without electricity or cellular connectivity, the Twenty20 suite of solutions is designed to extend your reach and impact across your operational footprint. 

Our web-based platform enables you to view live footage of one or hundreds of your sites in a single, integrated system from any mobile device or computer. You can monitor your sites from thousands of miles away to ensure your operations are running efficiently and your assets are secure. Our technology provides the data you need to make real-time assessments and decisions with regard to security breaches, safety procedures, maintenance needs and more so you minimize costly downtime on your sites due to theft, vandalism or operational issues.

Oilfield Security

Securing oilfield sites can be challenging, especially considering the remote locations in which they are typically located. Even if your site does not have access to electricity or wi-fi, Twenty20 Solutions leverages leading-edge technology to provide a variety of innovative security options that do not require power or connectivity while giving unprecedented visibility to your sites.

Coupled with the visibility and insights provided by the Twenty20 cloud-based platform, we help you make the best real-time decisions to manage costs and your business, keep it up and running efficiently and to keep your people and assets safe.   

Automating Oilfield Security

Companies with operations in remote locations frequently need a way to monitor and automate their equipment and assets on the ground. With few or sometimes no employees onsite, you have next to no insight into the performance of these remote operations. This creates an increased risk of unidentified equipment errors, process failures, and maintenance issues, leading to expensive repairs and dangerous conditions.

Twenty20 Solutions provides the systems, technologies, and services required to automate operations at even the most remote locations. Here are just a few ways we can help automate your site operations:

  • Add an additional layer of prevention by tying identifying photos and video to incorrect or unauthorized keypad entries by managing your surveillance and access control systems in the same platform

  • Two-way communication allows you to control all operations, including pumps, remotely – changes are immediately updated on site.

  • Automated safety settings mean a decreased risk of leaks and spills.

  • Electronic ticketing system for drop-off facilities reduces driver time on site, increases the accuracy of information, and automates invoicing and regulatory report processing.

  • Customizable alerts sent via text or email give immediate visibility to urgent issues even when no one is on site.

Benefits of Video Surveillance, Automation & Monitoring on Oilfield Sites

Deter Crime

The remote locations of oilfields make them prime targets for criminals. With security solutions from Twenty20, you can stop crime before it happens with real-time visibility to your sites from any location.

Control Access

Know exactly who comes and goes from your lease with remote access control solutions from Twenty20. Video surveillance, access history and audit trails provide visibility to exactly who is on your sites and when to minimize trespassers and reduce crime.
