Protecting oil and gas industry from lightning and surges
Chemical and petrochemical systems (for example, refineries or oil, gas and product pipelines) are important main arteries of individual countries and entire regions. These systems heavily depend on the reliable operation of electrical and electronic equipment. However, the direct and indirect effects of lightning strikes and other transients can threaten the smooth operation of these systems. Their large surface area, location or design as well as the use of modern measuring and control equipment bear substantial risk potentials.
