Early Leak Detection and TPI Monitoring for Pipelines – Presenting a Practical Experience with Distributed Optical Fiber Sensing

Fibersonics Inc
Fibersonics Inc
The Oil & Gas pipeline industry is facing a very serious challenge in assuring spill and accident-free operations of pipeline infrastructure, which is distributed across many thousands of miles in both remote and populated areas. In recent years, however, the occurrences of high-profile spil ls and incidents have spiked, further escalating the...

A Case Study for Application of Nonintrusive Scraper Passage Indicators in Oil and Gas Industry

Real-Time Networks: Gas Data, Demand and Network Modelling
The gas industry in Great Britain has experienced fundamental change over the last 20 years and is continuing to change rapidly. There has been a reduction in indigenous supply, with an acceleration in the connection of new unconventional sources through biomethane supplies and the potential for hydrogen blending in the future. These changes are...

Overcoming the Challenges and Increasing Value in Fiber Optic Monitoring
Overcoming the Challenges and Increasing Value in Fiber Optic Monitoring
Distributed fiber optic sensing has been gaining significant momentum in pipeline industry adoption. The primary application of this technology has been in p reventative leak detection, but intelligent new applications such as pipeline flow rate monitoring are now emerging and promise to deliver extra value to the pipeline operators. We present a...

Real-time remote monitoring and risk management of oil & gas facilities subjected to natural hazards

Real-time remote monitoring and risk management of oil & gas facilities subjected to natural hazards
Real-time remote monitoring and risk management of oil & gas facilities subjected to natural hazards
The term “natural hazard” is used to describe any natural pheno menon that might have a negative effect on humans and/or the environment. The natural hazards can be classified into two broad categorie s: geological and meteorological (e.g. landslides, volcanic eruptions, heavy storms, floods, droughts and high ambient temperatures). Furthermore, it...
