Leak Detection Systems Selection

ARC has been conducting research related to oil and gas pipeline technology for over two decades.  Recently ARC conducted detailed research specifically for Leak Detection Systems.  Based on this research, ARC analysts have developed a comprehensive set of criteria to help you select the best leak detection solution available in the market.

Leak Detection Systems Overview

The complex nature of oil and gas pipelines that connect the production fields both onshore as well as offshore require specialized solutions to keep the pipelines operating continuously.  An important part of the controls and information systems is leak detection.  Different detection technologies are required depending on such factors as pressure and temperature, as well as the condition of the oil that is being pumped or the gas that is flowing through the pipeline.  Where the pipeline is located and what it passes through (e.g. water, land, combination) are also important in the proper selection of the leak detection solution.

Selecting the correct leak detection system can be crucial to the pipeline operation for environmental and business reasons.  Failure to detect a leak can cause environmental harm, but also can represent a safety hazard, particularly if the leak occurs in a populated area.  Quick determination of what the leak is and where it is makes the correct leak detection solution selection essential.
