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.

Operations Managers

Our experts will design flexible, highly mobile noise control solutions to suit the needs of oil and gas facilities and maintenance teams.
Our barriers are 100% waterproof, easily cleaned and fire resistant, which makes them easy to use and store in difficult conditions. Echo Barrier products can be effectively applied in command centers and around worker accommodation, to shield them from internal and external sources of noise.

Health & Safety Specialists

Seek our experts’ advice on protecting the health of your work crews and local residents from harmful noise levels. Our barriers help protect workers from the occupational health and safety issues caused by continuous exposure to noise from drilling and maintenance activities.


Echo Barrier products are also effective at shielding workers’ accommodation and control rooms from the noise created by machinery, pumps and generators.


The speed and ease of installation and removal make them the best solution for providing temporary protection to maintenance crews.

Effective noise control for the oil and gas industry

Case study

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.

Key Details
The noise problem
The challenge faced by Echo Barrier, Hydroner and Fusiontec S.A. was to provide effective noise control around a hydraulic fracturing set in an extreme weather environment in Southern Argentina.
Our solution
The development of a double height, portable framework that can build an enclosing wall around a fracturing set. Once in position and anchored with concrete blocks, this framework allows effective noise control while withstanding winds of up to 150kph and providing an effective screen for fracturing operations.
The results
In real world tests, a single layer of Echobarrier H4 mounted on the wind resistant frame around a hydraulic fracturing rig, achieved a reduction of over 20dB. This setup is shortly to go into the field for full deployment.
Our construction sound barriers will reduce noise complaints, improve worker safety, and let you keep work sites open longer, increasing efficiency and reducing costs. Learn more about our acoustic construction barriers.
