World Oil Staff December 16, 2022

(WO) — A patent-pending invention provides an effective way to display wind direction at a parked truck when hydrogen sulfide gas is being released at an oil or gas drilling location.

As a result, it could help to avoid exposure to dangerous H2S gas. The invention features a simple design that is easy to use so it is ideal for oil and gas drilling companies. Additionally, a prototype model is available upon request.

"I wanted to create a simple way to prevent pumpers and other workers from being exposed to dangerous H2S in the field," said the inventor, from Odessa, Texas, "so I invented the WIND SOCK. My design could help to prevent injuries and death caused by exposure to these gases."

The original design was submitted to the National sales office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
