The main reason for pipeline operators to monitor their pipeline network for Third Party Interferences is because they want to prevent incidents that could hinder product delivery, cause environmental damages, or pose a threat to nearby communities. However, if aerial inspections are used to monitor this network, communities are still disturbed by noise, polluting CO2 emissions are emitted, as well as NOx emissions that are harmful to critical nature reserves. More and more energy companies are looking for ways to reduce this environmental footprint: CoSMiC-EYE is the solution. Satellite-based monitoring isn’t paired with hardly any emissions, and produces zero noise!
𝗕𝗲𝗻𝗲𝗳𝗶𝘁𝘀 𝗼𝗳 𝗖𝗼𝗦𝗠𝗶𝗖-𝗘𝗬𝗘:
✅ No CO2 emissions
✅ No noise pollution
✅ No NOx emissions
Another sustainable aspect of satellite-based monitoring is that with currently available satellites, networks all over the world can be monitored. Compare this to conventional monitoring, where for each network, a separate aerial fleet is used to monitor it. Imagine the emissions of all aerial fleets combined – especially when compared to the almost zero emissions when all these networks would be monitored by satellite-based monitoring.
