Protect your Pipeline with LivePIPE®

The World’s most reliable real-time pipeline protection technology

LivePIPE II ® Solution

Protect your pipelines and their products against damage, theft and the consequences of leaks

 

LivePIPE® II represents the next generation in LivePIPE technology, harnessing the enhanced capability and functionality of the Helios X3 Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS) and EDAM system to deliver smarter and more intuitive detection at industry leading range.

LivePIPE II delivers unrivalled detection of leak events and pipeline threat activities, including excavation and drilling. With its dynamic Alarm system operators are armed with the information they need to quickly and proportionately respond to any incident to prevent damage or theft and to minimise the environmental impact at the earliest possible opportunity.

The Helios X3 dual-channel technology monitors two fibres along the pipeline up to 50 km in length to deliver 100 km of pipeline monitoring from a single DAS unit.

The significant technical enhancements in LivePIPE II are making it easy for operators to protect their assets than ever before, with a substantial economic saving compared with leading competitors.

  • Extended range of up to 100 km from one Helios DAS interrogator
  • Cost reduction for identical length of asset
  • Listen to a section of the fibre sensor with headphones
  • Play back and analyse data files to interpret new threats
  • Options for system redundancy

LivePIPE ® Solution

Protect your pipelines and their products against damage, theft and the consequences of leaks

 

LivePIPE delivers unrivalled detection of leak events and pipeline threat activities, including excavation and drilling. With world-leading Distributed Acoustic Sensor (DAS) technology and a dynamic Alarm system, operators are armed with the information they need to quickly and proportionately respond to any incident to prevent damage or theft and to minimise the environmental impact at the earliest possible opportunity.

Pipeline Intrusion (PIDS) and Leak Detection (LDS) monitoring with Fotech's LivePIPE technology:

  • Monitor more than 80km of pipeline continuously from a single Helios DAS unit
  • Modular design delivers a simple and flexible solution to fit any pipeline architecture and to adapt to an expanding pipeline network
  • 1,000's of km of pipeline and other linear assets already being monitored across the world
  • Operates on legacy and new standard optical communications fibre
  • Third Party Intrusion (TPI), Leaks, Pig Tracking, Earthquake Activity
  • No power required along the pipeline
  • Buried fibre is virtually undetectable and passive
  • Locate events to within a few metres
  • A robust, reliable sensing solution that provides industry leading monitoring to protect critical pipelines and detect leaks

 

Pipeline Intrusion Detection Systems (PIDS) are recognised across the globe as a proven technology for the protection pipelines, with thousands of kilometres of pipeline being protected every day in harsh, densely populated and remote locations.

About LivePIPE®

Protect your pipelines and their products against damage, theft and the consequences of leaks

 

Fotech’s LivePIPE solution is a major value-add for pipeline operators, enabling you to significantly enhance the range and capabilities of existing pipeline security and monitoring systems. LivePIPE can effectively help detect leaks and prevent malicious attacks and accidental damage to pipelines anywhere in the world.

The LivePIPE system connects directly into an operator’s fibre optic network, converting a standard optical fibre into tens of thousands of individual highly-sensitive vibrational sensors. This enables LivePIPE to identify and locate disturbances and potential threats where sound and vibrations disturb the casing of the fibre.

When fully integrated and networked with existing fibre networks, LivePIPE delivers a monitoring system that can span a limitless distance. This gives operators continuous visibility of what is happening along the entire length of a pipeline so they can make fast and informed decisions in real-time.

Fotech’s LivePIPE solution enables operators to anticipate and pinpoint potential incidents with far greater accuracy and reliability than ever before - while simultaneously easing the workload on security operatives by pulling all of the information into a single intuitive display.

By using advanced algorithms to identify and classify threats, LivePIPE has been configured to emphasise only events operators want to know about, ensuring threats are not ignored or missed whilst, crucially, minimising false alarms. There are significant volumes of incidents on pipelines all over the world and Fotech’s LivePIPE solution is a powerful new ally for operators to combat malign and accidental threats to ensure smoother and safer operation of their infrastructure.
