Fotech Solutions, the linear asset monitoring technology specialists, will be presenting its innovative Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS) technology at the AOG Argentina Oil & Gas Exhibition on 5th- 8th October 2015, in conjunction with its South American partner, Morken SA.

Morken SA, with over 30 years of experience in providing the highest quality pipeline integrity solutions to the Oil & Gas industry, works closely with Fotech to provide its customers with Fotech’s LivePIPE monitoring system. LivePIPE adds a new layer of intelligence to pipeline operators’ safety, security and maintenance measures.

LivePIPE enables the real-time detection of threats to oil and gas pipelines by converting an optical fibre of up to 40km long into the equivalent of tens of thousands of individual sensors. Real-time detection of the vibrations caused by acoustic disturbances at each point along the fibre enables operators to ‘visualise’ and record what is happening along the full length of the pipeline with greater clarity than ever before. LivePIPE gives operators clear actionable information that enables them to make the right decisions quickly and efficiently. Delivering the information they need, minimising the incidence of false alarms and providing alerts only about genuine threats, is at the core of the value that LivePIPE delivers.

Chris Shannon, CEO, Fotech Solutions, commented: ‘We’re really proud to be presenting our LivePIPE technology with Morken SA at the AOG Argentina Oil & Gas exhibition this year. Morken SA is at the forefront of the industry in terms of the tools they are offering to pipeline operators, which during unpredictable market conditions are an even higher priority.”

AOG Argentina Oil & Gas is the largest event of its kind in Buenos Aires and is organised by GExpo. The event brings together distributors, engineers, exporters and other professionals within the industry to discuss the latest technologies and business strategies that are necessary for the future profitability of the industry.
