The global scope of petrochemical operations, operating and site safety hazards, and public image perceptions, present a unique risk profile with specific security challenges beyond traditional facilities protection.

Oil, gas, and energy companies are key players in critical infrastructure development and thus in our nation’s economy and security. The global scope of the petrochemical industry, operating safety hazards, and terrorist threats, as well as social responsibility and public image perceptions, present a unique risk profile with security challenges that go beyond traditional facilities protection.

U.S. Security Associates (USA) provides security solutions for organizations that own or operate business components engaged in the exploration, development, and production of crude oil and natural gas, refining and manufacturing of petroleum products, transportation of crude and finished products, and product sales.
