Distributed Fiber optic sensor used to monitor the pipeline for leaks and third-party intrusions
Distributed Fiber optic sensors monitor and locate in real time temperature, strain and acoustic events, caused by leaks or third-party interference, to provide a remote pipeline integrity surveillance solution
The combination of our multiple measurements enables a finer quantitative leak detection by looking at the Joule-Thomson effect as well as the acoustic signature of the leak, therefore reducing the false-positive alarms. This solution allows the operator, with a single interrogator, to simultaneously detect leaks, to track pigs and alert them to integrity threats, thus significantly reducing the overall project cost and footprint.
Reaching up to 100 km from a single end of the fiber make this solution unique in the market and robust thanks to harsh environmental qualification tests that makes it deployable across the globe and reliable.
The solution is scalable and can cover all pipeline assets, from above ground to buried transcontinental transmission pipeline for all fluid types. The Artificial Intelligence used in the solution allows adjustable detection sensitivity along the asset adapting to the local environment and customized event recognition.
