Operational performance validation results for a satellite-based ROW monitoring solution

Orbital Eye
Orbital Eye
For the past decades, helicopter surveys have been the state-of-the-art solution for right-of-way (ROW) monitoring to protect pipelines from third-party-interferences (TPI’s). When TPI activities damage a pipeline, it can lead to disastrous events. Therefore, aerial inspection early-warning systems are used to mitigate these risks. Recent...

Artificial Intelligence in the Design of Offshore Pipelines against Geohazards

National Technical University of Athens
National Technical University of Athens
Depending on the local site conditions (i.e. bathymetry, geomorphology, geology), an offshore geohazard may have a detrimental impact on an offshore high-pressure gas pipeline during its lifetime. This fact is more pronounced in areas characterized by seismicity and the associated earthquake-related geohazards. Therefore, the design of an offshore...

Spec Breaks: Application of Codes for Launchers and Receivers

T.D. Williamson
T.D. Williamson
Safety and compliance are priorities for the design and operation of pipeline pig launchers and receivers, also known as traps. During design, different codes and standards can be applied depending on the product that will be transported and where the equipment will be located. Because of code interpretation, an operator or equipment provider may...

The Sivas Gypsum Karst - Implications for Routing, Construction and Operation of the Trans Anatolian Natural Gas Pipeline
