Oil & Gas Operations Sound Level Prediction & Modeling

Oil and gas production and transmission operations in urban areas have become more difficult to perform with increasingly strict local, state, and federal oil and gas related noise ordinances.  Many noise ordinances contain in-depth matrices specifying maximum allowable noise levels measured at specific distances from noise generating equipment such as drilling rigs, compressors, and fracturing equipment.  Without an understanding of the potential noise impact of the planned drilling rig, compressor, or fracing equipment, operators can lose valuable time and money dealing with oil and gas related noise problems on urban drilling and compressor sites.

We can then use the environmental noise impact model to evaluate potential noise mitigation solutions for oil and gas production and transmission operations that are out of compliance with noise ordinances or have other noise related issues and concerns.  ENC can input different combinations of acoustical barrier walls, acoustical buildings, and other mitigation into the model to create a series of mitigated noise impact models.  The predicted noise levels from the unmitigated and mitigated environmental noise impact models are compiled into a report and supplied to our client.  With the noise impact model report in hand, our clients have the ability to see an assortment of projected noise mitigation results and implementation costs before any noisy equipment is ever operated on-site.

We construct our noise impact models with the latest version Predictor Type 7810 software developed by Brűel & Kjær, a recognized leader in the field of acoustics and vibration.  Predictor Type 7810 software calculates the noise impact model while taking into account the noise attenuation effects of environmental variables such as atmospheric conditions, ground cover, and surrounding site topography.  The calculation method used by the software complies with ISO 9613 standards.
