PHMSA awarded the University of California, Berkeley with US$250 000 from its Competitive Academic Agreement Program. FOSA member Dr. Soga is the Donald H. McLaughlin Chair in Mineral Engineering and a Chancellor’s Professor at UC Berkeley.
Hifi Engineering’s HDS technology utilizes the power of high fidelity fiber optic dynamic sensing to detect small changes in the optical path length between two adjacent fiber bragg gratings, which are used as low angle wavelength reflectors.
FOSA congratulates Dr. Kenichi Soga and the University of California, Berkeley on its $250,000 Competitive Academic Agreement Program award from PHMSA.
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
