Pipeline operators are responsible for the safe transport of hazardous materials through transmission pipelines. Since pipeline failures can cause severe damage to people, infrastructure and the natural and built environment, operators are concerned with monitoring the integrity of their pipelines on a regular or even continuous basis. This article discusses the use of radar satellite imagery to provide pipeline operators with a continuous source of information in order to monitor and manage their assets from space.
The December issue of World Pipelines includes several articles that introduce and consider pipeline integrity and sensing, rehabilitation and retrofit, and much more.
