Paper title: Rupture Detection
Category: Off Shore Communications
Room: 320 A

The presentation will cover the origins of rupture detection, how rupture detection differs from leak detection, the challenges of rupture detection, and how to resolve these challenges.
Pipeline ruptures have been known to cause catastrophic harm to the environment and can endanger the lives of people. Many times, pipeline ruptures are gone unnoticed for long periods of times and/or the pipeline is restarted by operators after it trips. The rapid nature of ruptures can prove to be challenging to detect with conventional leak detection systems should the pumps trip due to low pressure. It will also cover the challenges of rupture detection, such as pump trips, and the need for absolutely no false alarms, in order to maintain the reliability of a high confidence rupture detection system. Solutions of what is available on the market today to overcome the challenges of missing a rupture will be described along with what a pipeline operator can do to detect and mitigate such rupture events.

Session Objectives:

  1. Educating the audience on rupture detection
  2. Distinguishing the difference between rupture and leak detection
  3. Identifying the challenges and providing a solution to ruptures

Peter will also be available to discuss Atmos’ latest innovations for the pipeline industry:
