IMPROVE SAFETY & EFFICIENCY OF OIL PIPELINES MONITORING With SAR Satellite Imagery

Significantly decrease costs on right of way monitoring and improve integrity and threat management processes for oil pipelines with frequent and reliable SAR satellite data. 

Persistent monitoring of oil pipelines with SAR satellites allows to get accurate information on construction activities and vegetation incursion. With SAR Interferometry (InSAR), it is possible to monitor land subsidence, detecting down to millimetric changes, what helps to predict and prevent possible oil pipeline collapses.

Right of Way (ROW) Monitoring of Oil Pipelines with SAR Satellites

There are three key pipeline integrity problems satellite-based pipeline monitoring can tackle:

  • Right of way third party interference, where, for example, road construction or other excavation activities expose underground pipelines to potential physical damage;
  • Pipeline oil theft, where oil pipelines are hot tapped and oil trucks are used to transport stolen oil from the pipeline;
  • Geohazards, where risks for landslides are monitored, pipeline river crossings are monitored for risks of exposing pipelines, etc.

ICEYE SAR satellite data enables your analysts to detect changes in the defined pipeline corridor, and then classify those changes. This analysis will help you to receive actionable information for ROW monitoring.

ICEYE SAR SATELLITE DATA ENABLES:

  • Detection of land subsidence with down to millimetric accuracy with InSAR.
  • Early detection of anomalies, such as acceleration of land subsidence.
  • Monitoring of oil pipelines and their construction sites.
  • Quick response to oil pipeline incidents and accurate estimation of impacted areas.

 

ICEYE continues to grow its current SAR satellite constellation capacity with the objective to provide daily interferometry and coherent change detection anywhere on Earth with a 24h ground track repeat. This breaks existing barriers in collecting SAR imagery stacks for InSAR analysis, bringing the collection time down with every new satellite in the ICEYE constellation. Since 2018, ICEYE has launched commercially available SAR satellites, and the company will continue to increase the size of the commercial constellation every year.
