(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Energy giant ExxonMobil was presented with the 'Innovation Award', one of Qatar Petroleum's distinguished 'Health, Safety and Environment Excellence (HSE) Awards for 2013' in recognition of its 'Remote Gas Detection System' an innovative technology developed by ExxonMobil Research Qatar (EMRQ) which gives warning alert in case of any hydrocarbon leaks.

H E Dr Mohamed bin Saleh Al Sada, the Minister of Energy and Industry, and also the Chairman and Managing Director of Qatar Petroleum, announced the results at a gala awards ceremony recently.

Bart Cahir, President and General Manager of ExxonMobil Qatar, said: "As a long-term partner of QP, we are thrilled to receive this important award of distinction."

Cahir added: "At ExxonMobil we are deeply committed to sustainability. The Remote Gas Detection System can potentially improve the safety of our people, the integrity of our facilities, and the protection of the environment; elements that are fundamental to successful operations both now and for future generations."

The QP HSE Excellence Awards recognise outstanding health, safety and environment programmes that are being implemented in Qatar's oil and gas industry, while promoting continual improvement and the sharing of best practices in the field of HSE. Three organisations from among QP's joint venture partners, contractors and within its business units were also recognised with gold awards for their outstanding efforts and overall contributions during 2013. The winners each received a trophy and a certificate of HSE Excellence in honour of their achievements.

During the award presentations, Dr Al Sada explained that safety, health and environmental protection were more than just valuable attributes of business, and represented an organisational commitment aligned with the national vision of the government under the wise leadership of the Emir, H H Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani.

The Remote Gas Detection system which was fully developed and commercialised through ExxonMobil Research Qatar at the Qatar Science and Technology Park with patents pending, is designed to improve process safety and environmental performance at any facility where oil and gas is produced, processed, transported, stored or sold. The goal of this technology is to deliver an early warning alert of hydrocarbon leaks.
