AP Sensing Selected for Oil Pipeline Leakage Detection

Mittelplate is Germany's largest oilfield and is located in the ecologically-sensitive Wadden Sea (a national park). The operators selected a Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) solution from AP Sensing for monitoring and leakage detection.

A single AP Sensing DTS device was installed to monitor the 8 kilometers of pipeline between the island and the mainland. Along the route is a series of excavation platforms.

The fiber optic sensor cable was installed along the length of the transport pipeline for temperature monitoring and leakage detection. At the beginning and end of the installation the pipeline runs through specially prepared trenches. Most of the route sections were realized with HDD (horizontal directional drilling), with lengths of up to 1400 m. Pipeline burial depths were around 5 m in the mud flats and up to 20 m in the HDD areas.

A highly robust, double armor plated sensor cable was chosen to ensure a smooth installation, and also to provide continuous monitoring in case the pipeline rolls or shifts. Intelligent alarming algorithms make it possible to detect even very small leaks quickly and to identify their location.

Valuable assets and a highly-sensitive environmental region remain protected.
