Why relying on one method of leak detection isn’t enough

Relying on a single method of leak detection is akin to relying on only one ILI tool for a full pipeline integrity assessment – both leak detection and ILI require multiple tool solutions that look for different indicators that the pipeline is at risk to reduce different integrity threats. CPM systems are unable to detect small leaks – with a…


How do inline leak detection tools identify a leak?

Oil and gas pipelines have well-defined leak detection protocols to proactively identify leaks. The most common is computational pipeline monitoring (CPM), which works by continuously comparing the amount of product entering the pipeline to the amount of product exiting the pipeline – any discrepancy may indicate a potential leak along the pipeline. Most operators also use right of way surveys…


PureHM Introduces Hot Product Applications for SmartBall

The SmartBall tool is a multi-sensor inline inspection tool that can assess both piggable and unpiggable oil and gas pipelines 4-inches in diameter and larger. It is a best-in-class leak detection tool with mapping capabilities as well as pressure and temperature sensors, which provides operators with a clear profile of their pipeline including confirmation of containment. The SmartBall platform is…
