Monitoring Your Pipeline Today Will Allow Growth Opportunities in The Future

Pipeline monitoring now opens up opportunities for the future.

  • Problem: Leaks and negative public image prevents growth.
  • Solution: Leak detection prevents disasters.
  • Benefit: Peace of mind with less leaks.

Toledo, OH – February 26, 2020 – Oil & gas transmission companies are leaning on all manner of technology solutions to protect their products and the environment. Hardware sensors installed on a pipeline, combined with high powered data processing, allows companies to learn about leaks or damages to strategic assets. Traditional right-of-way (ROW) monitoring includes both aerial and ground-based inspection. In today’s charged political environment, pipeline companies are recognizing now more than ever that eliminating damage to infrastructure and leaks is paramount if they ever plan to upgrade or grow their assets in the future.

In North Dakota, Energy Transfer has received approval to expand the capacity of its Dakota Access pipeline. Energy Transfer is a client of Satelytics through the iPIPE consortium ( and is including remote sensing using our software platform in its “all of the above” approach to leak prevention and detection. Satelytics' forward reaching algorithms allow transmission companies to spot leaks up to a daily basis, with alerts sent directly to response individuals in as little as 2-3 hours after an image is obtained. Satelytics' software can process spectral data from any platform, using its robust pre-processing framework that has been built by world-class artificial intelligence scientists and programmers. "All of the above" is done without any human interaction, which minimizes the workload on your company’s biggest assets: your employees.
