Tailored Solutions for Dust Control, Soil Stabilisation, and Water Management

Dust-A-Side Australia offers innovative products for soil stabilisation, dust control, and road management, tailored specifically for the oil and gas industry. Our solutions focus on reducing dust on hardstand areas, enhancing the durability and stability of high-traffic roads, and minimising environmental impacts.

Trusted by some of the world’s largest resource companies, we have a proven track record of providing reliable and robust solutions to meet the unique challenges of this sector.

Regulatory Compliance

Oil and gas operations must adhere to stringent local, state, and federal regulations, particularly regarding dust control and environmental impact. Comprehensive dust management plans and continuous monitoring are essential to ensure compliance and mitigate the environmental footprint of these activities.

Road Access, Transport and Maintenance

Access roads are crucial for oil and natural gas extraction companies, both on-site and within the wider community. These roads endure heavy traffic and significant wear and tear, necessitating effective dust control and stabilisation to maintain visibility, reduce health risks, and ensure year-round, all-weather access.

Environmental Impacts

The dynamic activities involved in oil and gas extraction, such as drilling and site preparation, can lead to soil erosion, water pollution, and habitat disruption. Effective dust and erosion control measures are vital to mitigate these impacts and promote sustainable practices in the industry.

Health and Safety Concerns

Fugitive dust generated during oil and gas operations poses serious respiratory hazards to workers and can obscure visibility, increasing the risk of accidents. Implementing stringent dust control measures is critical to safeguarding worker health and ensuring safe operational conditions.

Reduce on-site dust and improve efficiency with Dust A Side Australia’s range of targeted solutions

Our targeted solutions for oil and gas projects

Dust Binders

Dust-A-Side Australia offers a variety of advanced dust control binders which stabilise, seal, and manage dust on access roads. Our binders can also be applied to hardstand areas. These binder solutions lower maintenance costs, address visibility issues, and ensure compliance with regulatory standards, providing year-round, all-weather site access.

Fog Cannons

Fog cannons are portable dust suppression units that disperse a fine mist over large areas, making them ideal for oil and gas applications. They help meet regulatory dust control requirements, reduce environmental impact, and improve air quality and visibility. These units are easy to set up and move, ensuring effective dust control even in windy conditions. With significant water savings and no harsh chemicals, fog cannons offer a sustainable and cost-effective solution for managing dust in oil and gas operations.
