OptaSense involved in the Virtual Pipeline Summit, latest in fiber optic leak detection technology
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
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
“PHMSA deserves praise for taking significant steps toward enhancing the safety of pipelines, including extending leak detection requirements," said FOSA Chairman JJ Williams.
Dr. Chris Minto, Engineering Director for OptaSense, delivered “Challenges in Validation and Verification of External Fiber Optic Leak Detection Systems,” at Rio Pipeline 2019 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
