A leak detection evaluation framework for onshore transmission pipelines has been developed in conjunction with PHMSA. The framework is to be used by pipeline operators to evaluate and verify leak detection systems that operate external to the pipeline, specifically those with the ability to detect small leaks.

In addition to developing the framework, we have shown how the framework can be used through a demonstration exercise. The exercise involved assessing the ability of candidate technologies to meet specific performance requirements.

Mr. Mathew Bussière is presenting the results of this project at the upcoming Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Management Conference in Houston, Texas on February 22, 2019 at 10:30 a.m. You will learn about how to apply the leak detection evaluation framework to identify and evaluate external leak detection systems for deployment on onshore transmission pipelines.

The entire paper – Development of a Framework for Evaluating and Verifying External Leak Detection Systems for Pipelines – is available through the 2019 Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Management Conference. The complete framework is also available for download through the PHMSA website.

Mr. Mathew Bussière is a Senior Research Engineer in the Pipeline Design & Construction department at C-FER. His focus is on the application of external leak detection technologies.
