Leak Detection and Regulation

Unlike inline inspection, above-ground inspection and hydro testing, inline leak detection is not currently mandated on all pipelines in North America. However, in specific cases, inline leak detection can be mandated. An example of this is a major operational change – such as a flow reversal – that might result in regulators mandating specific inspections for a period after the…

How large a leak could you be missing with CPM?

Computational pipeline monitoring (CPM) is legislated on most pipelines in North America. While these systems are crucial in maintaining the integrity of a pipeline, they only operate at roughly 2-3% of throughput, and have a theoretical limit of 1% of throughput due to the error tolerance for meters. While the systems are highly effective for continuous monitoring for large product…

Why reducing global methane emissions matters and how Spectrum XLI can help

Methane, the primary component in natural gas, is a potent greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change as it enters the atmosphere. Methane is particularly concerning as its global warming potential is 25 times that of carbon dioxide over a 100-year period. Not only is this rise in methane emissions detrimental to the environment, but a 2015 report by the…
