Pipeline Theft Detection
Fast detection and localisation of illegal tapping
Most incidents on pipelines are due to product theft. Often, only small amounts of product are taken over a short period of time. If these illegal tappings remain undetected, considerable financial damage is caused for the pipeline operator, as well as leaks that can lead to permanent pollution of the environment.
The intelligent monitoring solution PipePatrol Theft Detection has a special theft pattern recognition which, in combination with process instrumentation for pressure, temperature and flow, allows it to detect and localise illegal tapping of pipelines accurately and reliably. An alert is issued within minutes so that pipeline operators can take countermeasures as quickly as possible.
