Pipeline Patrols and Leak Detections
Pipeline Patrol, Leak Detection and Jurisdictional Determination
Pipeline Patrols and Leak Detections are conducted to observe surface conditions on and adjacent to the system right-of-way for indications of leaks, construction activity, possible encroachment, and other relative factors affecting the safety and operational conditions on pressurized/non-pressurized pipelines and pipeline facilities. A Flame Ionization Detector (FID) will be used along with visual and olfactory observation to determine if leaks are present along the pipeline right-of-way (ROW). While performing this survey the surface conditions on and adjacent to the system will be observed for possible encroachment, construction activities and other relative factors that could affect the safety and operation of the pipeline. Jurisdictional Determinations are conducted to determine the class rating of pipeline systems. C&S staff utilize maps and field verification of data to determine the classification of the piping system. These activities will be performed in general accordance with the current edition of 49 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Subpart M, under 192.705 and 192.706 respectively.
C&S can conduct and prepare written reports to keep your pipelines in compliance with Pipeline Patrol, Leak Detection and Jurisdictional Determination needs.
