chemical, oil & gas

Delivering security & safety in the production, storage & distribution of chemicals, oil and gas, while meeting demands & production quotas!

Oil and gas form the basis of the petrochemical industry, primarily used as fuel for transport and supplying energy, however they also provide the primary feedstock to produce chemicals including plastics, fertilizers, pesticides, solvents, and pharmaceuticals. Whilst Australia still has some remaining oil resources and refining capability, fuel oil and petroleum production is in decline and most of these products are imported into Australia.

Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) has become the largest export product in this sector, primarily out of Western Australia and Queensland. Natural gas is also the main feedstock for production of many common chemicals including Ammonia (NH3) and Ethylene (C2H4). Other gases such as oxygen (O2), Nitrogen (N2), Carbon Dioxide (CO2) and Argon (Ar) are important for industrial or medical use and are produced by a different process, cryogenic distillation, which involves cooling air to very low temperatures to separate out these gases.

Due to the hazardous nature and differing composition of chemicals, oil and gas within the industry, security and safety in the production, storage, and distribution of products is a major concern. Automation and control play a vital role in the accurate measurement, traceability, and distribution of products, safeguarding staff and processes using real-time data and best equipment. Not only do you gain the much-needed control over safety and risk, automation and control solutions allow you to gain a clearer understanding of your operations, and in turn allows you to better meet demands and production quotas.

At Triple i, we understand the important balance between of safety and production optimisation for chemical, oil, and gas operations. Our team are experts at providing automation and control solutions that address legislative and regulatory standards, while seeking new and innovative ways to measure, monitor and control your processes to ensure both functional safety and production output is not compromised.



At Triple i, we understand explosive substances, hostile media, and extreme temperatures make processes within the chemical, oil, and gas industry extremely hazardous and risky. Our team, use stringent practices to help make processes more productive, ensure your team and environment are safe, and optimise profitability through cutting costs and saving energy. As a reliable and experienced partner within the chemical, oil, and gas industry, we support you in each phase of the project, from concept and design, to engineering and construction, to commissioning and post service support.

We automate their entire chemical, oil, and gas operations processes, from extraction of raw materials and production to the storage, delivery, and distribution of the finished product. Our team have access to innovative instruments, equipment, and system solutions to safely automate your processes, and are constantly developing new solutions to ensure your operations are easily adaptable to changing requirements while keeping performance at an optimum. Triple i can provide specialised personnel who have the experience and application knowledge required in these areas, especially:

  • Automation and electrical engineers for control and electrical systems, measurement, and reporting.
  • Functional Safety (FS) HAZOPS, design, audits, and Electrical Equipment in Hazardous Areas (EEHA).
  • Electricians for installation and maintenance.
  • Instrument technicians for correct installation and calibration of key measurement parameters.
  • Mechanical fitters to fabricate, install and maintain the various plant equipment around the site.

      A major concern, for the chemical, gas and oil industry is the transportation and movement of product in external environments, and situations out of the control of the initial or extraction production facility. Using fuel terminals, pipelines and then transport via road or rail to industry, local outlets, and other storage facilities means there are a multitude of risks, including product loss, material handling hazards, miscommunication of data and more. Each of these risks can have affects on profitability along with safety concerns.

      For this reason, automation and measurement is key, whether it be for automated processes for material transfer between tanks, or the measurement of levels in tanks, flow rates in pipes or mass on weighbridges. We can provide the correct equipment, system integrations and automation processes which ensure real-time data is available anywhere your product is transferred or stored. You know exactly where your product is, how much is being transferred, and can identify hazards throughout its journey. Our team can provide the control processes and information that allow for better decisions, which improve operational safety, quality control, reliability of supply, and overall performance optimisation.

      Why choose Triple i as your Solutions Partner?

      Triple i provide chemical, oil and gas operations with automation and control solutions which are fit-for-purpose. We investigate each project and devise solutions which are best suited to resolve issues, or which address specific requirements, rather than providing a one-fits-all approach or selling what could be sold to make a profit.
