— Oil & gas barriers —

Effective noise control for the oil and gas industry

Our temporary noise reduction barriers provide a simple, fast and effective noise control solution for the oil and gas industry. They cut noise pollution from drilling operations, and from shale gas exploration and fracturing sites, by as much as 99%, and are effective inside plant control rooms. They’re quick and easy to install, which is ideal for maintenance work, and typically last up to five times longer than conventional products.

Consultancy & advice

Our acoustic engineers will help you work out the most effective way to mitigate noise, in order to protect the health of workers and neighboring communities. With the right noise barriers in the right place, noise from shale gas exploration and fracking can be cut by up to 40dB. Protecting local communities from excessive noise means one less obstacle to securing planning permission.

The need to continually drill new wells throughout a fracking operation can be a challenge for noise control. Our acoustic barriers solve this problem. They’re extremely easy to install and move, so it’s easy to keep them close to the source of noise, allowing them to work at maximum efficiency.

And with world-leading sound attenuation and absorption, our temporary barriers will protect the health of workers in more standard drilling operations—particularly during the assembly, maintenance or replacement of oil refinery equipment.

Fusiontec Southern Argentina

The frame development and Echo Barrier technology has allowed effective noise control in the harsh Patagonian environment for the first time

Christian Farjat, CEO, Hydroner

Echo Barrier partner Hydroner worked with Fusiontec S.A to develop a unique portable framework to allow deployment of Echo Barrier technology in extreme weather environments.
The barriers are specifically designed to cut noise from a fracturing set in exposed areas, designed to be portable whilst resisting winds of up to 150kph.
