Paper Abstract

Asset integrity monitoring based on distributed fiber optic monitoring using BOTDA is playing an increasingly important role in today’s oil and gas and energy industries. Existing applications, part of operator’s asset integrity management plans are as diverse as fatigue monitoring of subsea umbilicals, thermal optimization of direct electrical heated subsea flowlines, pipeline leak and ground movement detection and 3D pipeline deformation monitoring or thermal management of offshore wind farm electrical export cable. The monitoring solutions developed and qualified by OMNISENS over the last decade are now installed world wild, providing 24/7 event detection and localization for its valuable customers.
