Current gas leak detectors are ineffective safety monitoring and decision making tools. Alarms are often difficult to verify and require significant resources (instrumentation and trained personnel) to identify the size, direction and origin of leak. In bad weather conditions, it becomes even more difficult to find the leak and verify that there had been a true positive alarm and not a false positive alarm. Due to these difficulties, often times problematic gas leak detectors are de-tuned rendering them useless and/ or ignored until more resources can be brought in to find the leak. This hinders the decision making process and increases risk and lost product. To address this need, Rebellion Photonics has developed an innovative, fully automatic, gas leak detection video camera system that can be deployed around rigs and refineries for continuous (24/7) monitoring. Instead of providing a single alarm value like current gas leak detectors, the gas cloud imaging (GCI) camera provides operators with easy-to-interpret false-colored video showing the location, direction, size and concentration of a gas leak. The GCI camera is a true decision making tool that can operate in all weather conditions as well as day and night as it does not require any external light sources. The camera's technology is based on Rebellion Photonics' patented snapshot hyperspectral imaging approach which can capture a gases unique infrared absorption spectral fingerprint from any point in an image instantly. In this presentation, we will present the capabilities of the GCI camera; describe the technology and present examples of gas leaks that have been detected by the GCI camera system.

Robert Kester is the Chief Technology Officer and Co-Founder of Rebellion Photonics, a high-tech company that delivers fully autonomous video monitoring solutions for the oil & gas industry based on their novel snapshot hyperspectral imaging technology. He has 15 years of optics experience, 10+ publications, 4 patents and 5 more pending. He has completed his MSc from the College of Optical Sciences, University of Arizona and PhD in Bioengineering from Rice University.
