0940 – 1010VALUE ADDED PIPELINE APPS WITH HIGH FIDELITY FIBER OPTIC MONITORING & MACHINE LEARNING

agenda_1600925557.jpg

  • Distributed fiber optic sensing has been gaining significant momentum in pipeline industry adoption. The primarily application for this technology has been preventative leak detection
  • High fidelity distributed sensing (HDS) uses a unique approach to interferometry which achieves very high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). Along with high SNR, HDS also provides integrated acoustics, temperature and strain/vibration, and is optimized to do so over long distances with provides no degradation of fidelity. The resulting sensing performance can be leveraged for other operational applications, which provides increased value over and above leak detection
