JIP to evaluate aerial-based pipeline safety technologies

C-FER is proud to partner with industry in the research and evaluation of aerial technolgies for pipeline leak detection.

The Joint Industry Project was launched in December 2014 to evaluate the effectiveness of pipeline leak detection technologies conveyed on airborne platforms to detect subsurface releases of liquid hydrocarbons. This project will include a variety of activities including modelling, lab and field testing. Vendors participating in these tests obtain key information to develop products more successful at detecting liquid hydrocarbon releases.

The results of this project will assist pipeline operating companies to identify the best technologies for detecting liquid hydrocarbon releases from airborne platforms and will provide key information to the equipment vendors to assist them in enhancing the sensitivity and reliability of their equipment.

Read more about this partnership and this important research in the April 2015 edition of Pipelines International.
