Testing & Consulting
Oil and gas production and transmission operations in urban areas have become more difficult to perform with increasingly strict noise ordinances. Many noise ordinances contain in-depth matrices specifying maximum allowable noise levels measured at specific distances from noise generating equipment such as drilling rigs, compressors, and fracturing equipment. Without an understanding of the potential noise impact of the planned equipment, operators can lose valuable time and money dealing with noise problems on urban drilling and compressor sites.
Oeler Industries conducts sound studies using predictor software developed by Bruel & Kjaer, a recognized leader in the field of acoustics and vibration. We can input different combinations of acoustical barrier walls, acoustical buildings, and other mitigation into the model to create a series of mitigated noise impact models. The noise levels from the unmitigated and mitigated environmental noise impact models are compiled into a report and supplied to our client. With the noise impact model report in hand, our clients have the ability to see an assortment of projected noise mitigation results and implementation costs before any noisy equipment is ever operated on-site.
