Siemens, ProFlex Partner On Pipeline Leak Detection

17 November 2020

Siemens Energy has partnered with Houston, Texas, USA-based ProFlex Technologies to provide spontaneous leak detection services for pipeline operators.

As part of the agreement, Siemens Energy gains exclusive access to ProFlex Technologies’ digital Pipe-Safe advanced leak detection technology, which is designed to enable oil, gas, and petrochemical operators to reduce their environmental footprint by minimizing unplanned product releases.

The solution leverages remote pressure monitoring and complex data processing algorithms to rapidly detect and localize pipeline leaks within +/-20 ft. of their location.  It is particularly relevant for companies that operate aging infrastructure, enabling detection of small leaks in pressurized lines transporting virtually any type of liquid or gas medium, the company said. Specific applications include long-distance oil and gas transmission lines, production gathering networks at well sites and offshore production risers.

“The use of Siemens Energy’s IoT technology, together with the Pipe-Safe technology, is a powerful combination that will help operators safely operate their assets and mitigate against the impact of unplanned product release through the early detection of leaks,” said Nico van Rensburg, head of Onshore Solutions’ Digital Solutions and Portfolio Innovation at Siemens Energy. “The IoT-based leak detection solution uses highly sensitive pressure sensors connected to pipelines at key locations to monitor internal pressure continuously.”
