Protecting oil and gas pipeline security is a constant battle for operators who face multiple potential threats.
These range from the risk of pipeline theft – or hot tapping – to accidental damage or leaks that may cause serious financial losses or environmental harm.
It is a difficult balancing act, and it is not getting easier. But, as our pipeline security case study shows, LivePIPE® II makes it possible to safeguard your pipelines, 24 hours a day, before assets are put at risk.
When it comes to pipeline monitoring, operators face a number of challenges. Pipeline leaks rarely happen without consequences and one of the major difficulties is detection.
The rate at which operators can detect potential leaks from their pipelines has a direct influence on how quickly they can respond. Download our white paper below for the full story.
Pipelines are inherently difficult assets to monitor because of the vast expanse of land they cover and the remote areas in which they are often located.
But, as our field tests prove, Fotech’s remote pipeline monitoring solutions offer astonishing reliability and accuracy, even when the terrain is hidden, inaccessible, or subject to extreme temperatures.
As operators are forced to deal with intensifying pipeline integrity threats, so technology vendors must respond to the heightened demands of the industry. Fotech is rising to the challenge with cutting-edge, modular, fully calibrated DAS pipeline security solutions.
LivePIPE® II has been designed specifically to deal with the nature of today’s security threats. The key challenge is the increasing sophistication of criminals engaged in hot tapping or other illegal activities along both the pipeline and perimeter security assets.
Our use cases and blog demonstrate exactly how we’re fighting back in the field on behalf of our customers – with sophisticated, real-time pipeline monitoring that alerts you to any threat, immediately and accurately.
With total pipeline incidents down by 17% but still not close to zero, what other technologies can help achieve this target?
Fibre networks are no longer about digital connectivity. They can be used as a powerful sensor network, connecting and creating an Internet of Things within cities.
What are the lessons existing urban areas can learn from a smart city designed from scratch?
Find out how DAS can sync up with existing smart city projects and help meet the needs of citizens in growing cities.
Smart motorways are a relatively new concept but they are already an important part of the UK Government's transport strategy. Find out how DAS technology can provide additional detection capabilities to increase safety and monitoring of motorways.
During the pandemic, some countries experienced internet outages due to subsea cable faults. Find out how DAS can help detect and pinpoint anomalies faster.
