Statistical Pipeline Leak Detection Techniques for All Operating Conditions

  title={Statistical Pipeline Leak Detection Techniques for All Operating Conditions},
  author={Dr Jun Zhang and Michael Twomey},
In the past ten years, a number of pipeline leak detection systems have been implemented on various operational pipelines. Unfortunately, the feedback from pipeline operators illustrates that many of these systems have not performed satisfactorily for the following reasons: They generate frequent nuisance alarms when there is no leak in a pipeline. They are difficult for users to understand. They are expensive to maintain. Consequently, there is a tendency for leak alarms to be neglected and in… CONTINUE READING
