OptaSense involved in the Virtual Pipeline Summit, latest in fiber optic leak detection technology
Fiber optic Distributed Acoustic Sensors (DAS) are useful and proven tools for third party interference detection. DAS...uses standard telecommunications fiber optic cable that is buried parallel to the pipeline as an array of acoustic sensors...[Aselsan] proposes
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.
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
“PHMSA deserves praise for taking significant steps toward enhancing the safety of pipelines, including extending leak detection requirements," said FOSA Chairman JJ Williams.
