Instrinsically safe methane monitoring as a service

Our Story: From the Oilfield to Tech Innovators

Based in Midland, Texas with operations across the U.S., Shepherd Safety Systems’ leadership team has experienced the rigors of the oil fields, understanding the intricate balance between operational efficiency and safety. This deep insight has shaped our company’s ethos and driven our commitment to produce methane detection technology tailored specifically for the oil and gas industry.

The Methane Sensor Revolution: Inside the Fence and Beyond

In the ever-evolving world of emissions, being the first is a coveted position. Shepherd is proud to have introduced the industry’s first methane sensor designed and certified to operate “inside the fence line.” Why is this significant?

  • Direct Source Monitoring: Most methane detection systems in the marketplace today are not certified to operate inside the fence line, making it extremely difficult to accurately detect and measure gas events. Our unique Class I Division 1 product, however, can be placed directly at the leak source, from atop vessels to any location inside the fence line. This proximity ensures unprecedented accuracy and timely alerts.
  • Intricate Design and Superior Functionality: Our sensor doesn’t just boast proximity; its design ensures pinpoint accuracy, providing detailed component-level data essential for timely corrective measures.
  • Always Connected: In today’s connected world, continuous data flow is crucial. Our sensors come equipped with redundant communication systems, including Wi-Fi, Ethernet, cellular LTE, and satellite, ensuring that you remain informed at all times.
