With the oil and gas industry continuing to hold up the global economy, production delays could overwhelm the entire supply chain and the consumer. Oil rig and gas field security has become essential to ensure production levels remain unaffected, company assets are also protected, and workers stay safe from a range of threats and dangers.
ASA Security Services has successfully operated gas field and oil rig security services since 1999, and we have become one of the best-in-class oil rig security contractors. Because of their location, oil rigs often become the target of piracy, terrorism, civil protest, inter-state hostilities, vandalism, and even internal sabotage, making a highly-skilled professional oil rig and gas field security service vital for protecting production and human life.

Over the years, oil platform security has become far more widespread due to the various threats oil and gas companies face to their assets. In 2021, authorities cataloged more than 11 pirate heists in the Gulf of Mexico. In June 2022, pirates kidnapped six oil company employees from an oil rig in the Ku-Mallob-Zaap oil field, stealing personal belongings and company-owned property. An effective oil rig security service operating surveillance and anti-piracy measures would reinforce inadequate oil company security.
