Hazard Alert - Ignition of Vapors

Prevention of Fatalities from Ignition of Vapors by Mobile Engines and Auxiliary Motors

Between 2005 and 2015 "85" DEATHS due to fires or explosions, Including 27 mobile engines/motors deaths


Vehicles and motorized equipment present an ignition hazard if located too close to the wellbore or other potential flammable vapor sources (e.g., flowback tanks, frac tanks, production tanks). When flammable vapors or gases are released, non-intrinsically safe engines and motors can ignite the vapors and cause explosions with catastrophic consequences.

Conducting a Fire Risk Assessment to ensure safe positioning of all motorized equipment during drilling and completions, servicing, and production operations is essential to preventing fires and explosions.
