Three reasons why LED industrial lighting fixtures are suitable for oil and gas industry

March 27 12:44 2023

Although the public has different views on the profitability of the oil and gas industry, the operating profits of many companies in the industry are very thin. Like other industries, oil and gas production companies also need to control and reduce costs to maintain cash flow and profits. Therefore, more and more companies are adopting LED industrial lighting fixtures. So why?

Cost savings and environmental considerations 

In a busy industrial environment, lighting costs account for a large part of the operating budget. The transition from traditional lighting to LED industrial lighting can reduce power consumption and utility costs by 50% or more. In addition, LED can provide high quality lighting level and can operate continuously for 50000 hours. Moreover, LED industrial lighting fixtures are designed to be more durable and can resist the impact and impact common in oil and gas operations. This durability can directly reduce maintenance costs.

The reduction of energy consumption is directly related to the load reduction of power facilities, thus reducing the overall carbon emissions. When LED industrial lighting bulbs and lamps are at the end of their service life, they can usually be recycled without any harmful waste.

Increase productivity

LED industrial lighting can produce high-quality lighting with less shadows and black spots. Better visibility improves employees’ work efficiency and reduces errors and accidents that may occur under poor light conditions. LED industrial lighting can be dimmed to improve the alertness of employees and reduce fatigue. Employees can also better distinguish details and color contrast to further improve productivity and employee safety.


LED industrial lighting improves safety in more ways than just creating a better lighting environment. According to the classification of OSHA standard, the production environment of oil and natural gas is generally classified as Class I hazardous environment, which means the presence of flammable vapors. Lighting in Class I hazardous environment must be designed to be separated from potential ignition sources, such as electric sparks, hot surfaces, and vapors.

LED industrial lighting fully meets this requirement. Even if the lamp is subject to vibration or impact from other equipment in the environment, the ignition source can be isolated from the steam. Unlike other lamps prone to explosion failure, LED industrial lighting is actually explosion-proof. In addition, the physical temperature of LED industrial lighting is much lower than that of standard metal halide lamps or high-pressure sodium industrial lamps, which further reduces the risk of ignition.
