FOSA had previously called for government and the pipeline industry to work together to establish a pipeline safety test facility. Based on operator input, FOSA issued a concept paper suggesting a buried ‘flow-loop’ pipeline to emulate leak
internally developed innovations help support not just preventative pipeline leak detection, but broaden into operational applications and help support environmental, social, and governance scorecard strategies.....The HDS system has been deployed by a number of pipeline operators...around the world
An AP Sensing Distributed Temperature Sensing solution was selected to monitor a pipeline transporting reservoir water in northern Germany….This pipeline is used to transport deposit water. The water cannot be discarded above ground due to its natural, slight radioactivity
“FOSA applauds PHMSA Administrator Skip Elliott’s leadership toward creating a Pipeline Safety Facility,” said FOSA Chairman Mike Hines. “The test facility...we believe will dramatically improve pipeline safety."
Threats to pipelines are seemingly on the rise. In a report published earlier this year, the U.S Congressional Research Service positioned pipeline protection as a significant factor in ensuring national security
