Pipeline Leak Monitoring
Advanced Leak Monitoring and Detection Solutions for Pipeline Infrastructure
Pipeline infrastructure is critical for distributing oil, natural gas, and water over vast distances. However, pipeline leaks can pose serious risks, such as environmental damage, safety hazards, and financial losses.
Conventional leak detection methods like acoustic detection or pressure difference may not be optimal for high-scale or hard-to-access networks.
Satellites are the future of pipeline leak prevention and detection
New remote sensing technology can remotely detect gas and methane leaks, which significantly contribute to climate change. By detecting leaks early, operators can take swift action to prevent environmental and safety damage.
It can also detect changes that may indicate a water line leak, allowing operators to avoid significant material and financial losses and supply disruption to communities. Additionally, the system can detect changes in the ground surface that may indicate a pipeline leak, such as ground deformation or soil disturbance.
Another aspect of pipeline monitoring is detecting other types of encroachments, which can damage infrastructure. Encroachments can occur when third-party activities, such as construction or excavation, encroach on the pipeline corridor. Vegetation roots can also pose a risk to infrastructure. It’s necessary for pipeline operators to take steps to prevent root intrusion and hydraulic uplift, such as installing physical barriers or using vegetation management systems to control plant growth near pipelines.
Spottitt MF allows pipeline leak monitoring, leveraging high-resolution satellite imagery and advanced machine-learning algorithms to detect potential leaks in underground and aboveground pipeline infrastructure.
It is a powerful tool for pipeline infrastructure operators to maintain assets’ safety and integrity, improve their operational efficiency, reduce risks, and protect the environment.
