Integration of multiple Leak Detection Technologies into a single Advanced Leak Detection System
This work is centered on the integration of different Leak Detection Technologies into a single platform for a better management of Pipeline Integrity Monitoring issues.
Leak detection methods covered in this paper are based on Advanced-Negative Pressure Wave, Mass-Balance, Acoustic-Noise, and other predictive techniques based on data processing. Each detection technology relies on distinct physical principles, detecting leaks and pipeline interferences originating from various threats (e.g., illegal tapping, third party interference, corrosion, and many other issues).
Such integrated approach has been named Advanced Leak Detection System and is developed over an already existing technological platform based on vibroacoustic sensing, which includes pressure and temperature sensors, accelerometers and flowmeters distributed along the pipeline.
In conclusion, the Advanced Leak Detection System, already deployed on several pipelines over Eni’s network, proved to be able to detect various events, leading to a complete and comprehensive Leak Detection Platform.
