Here is update on Porvidence patent on its new Infrared Image Hydrocarbon Leak detection in Refinery & Petchem plants.
It sounds like this is just an improvement / upgrade to existing systems but could also be new technology. Either way sounds
like big safety improvement and way for mor frequent monitoring of dangerous HC leaks. (Especially around Reformers & H2 sources which are especially hard & dangerous to detect).
