Pipeline Integrity: Best Practices to Prevent, Detect, and Mitigate Commodity Releases

By Lars Larsson

Pipeline Leak Detection Best Practices Whitepaper

Commodity releases can have catastrophic consequences, so ensuring pipeline integrity is crucial for pipeline operators. Pipeline integrity is not just about preventing incidents but is a holistic approach to pipeline leak prevention, leak detection, and leak mitigation. This paper discusses advanced technologies and tools that enable greater pipeline integrity, particularly computational pipeline monitoring (CPM) methodologies as a means to identify anomalies that signal a possible commodity pipeline release.
