OptaSense to Present at Oil & Gas Pipeline Leak Detection Congress USA 2020
January 29-30, 2020 | The Houstonian Hotel | Houston, TX
Dr. Chris Minto, Engineering Director for OptaSense will be presenting “Challenges In Performance Validation Of Fiber Optic Leak Detection” at the Pipeline Leak Detection Congress USA 2020 on Wednesday, January 29 at The Houstonian Hotel, Houston, TX.
Dr. Minto will be discussing how External Leak Detection systems based on distributed fiber optic sensors (DFOS) offer the exciting potential to significantly reduce the overall amount of spilled product before a leak is detected. As an external system, the validation of system performance and equally the verification of an operational installed system is a known challenge since, unlike in a conventional system, leaks cannot easily be simulated.
- Discussions of the need for large-scale validation approaches to performance bound acoustic-based leak detection systems.
- What are the typical challenges in validating system performance data?
- Presenting established options for in-field verification on customer owned systems.
