Fiber Optic Sensing based pipeline leak detection and location software is possibly the most important technological development in pipeline leak detection in recent years. Inclusion of DFOS in the latest revisions of the API RPs is a testimony to the technology’s contribution to leak detection
“The benefit of what we’ve shown is not just for leak detection in pipelines....The [DAS] technology has greater benefits for the safety of the human race, long term.” [explains Dr. Peter Hayward of Fotech Solutions]
An AP Sensing Linear Pro Series DTS solution was selected to monitor two reservoir water pipelines in northern Germany. These pipelines are used to dispose of water leftover from oil and gas production, which cannot be discarded above ground due to its natural, slight radioactivity.
FOSA applauded recent action by the U.S. House of Representatives to facilitate greater pipeline safety.
