TPI Tuesday – Dredging Activity Detected

In today’s TPI Tuesday, we see a dredging activity that was detected by the CoSMiC-EYE system. Dredging often poses a serious threat to the pipeline integrity, since heavy machinery is used, as can be seen in the upper left image that was taken by the field operators.

On the right, the radar signal is depicted before and after the dredging activity, and the image on the left shows the change blob that was created by our algorithms as a result of the change in SAR images.

Interesting fact: pipelines are not always buried at the same level, and hence, not all of the activities pose the same level of threat to the pipeline integrity amongst our customers.
