Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Leak Detection

The OPS has added a 2003 report on Hazardous Liquid Leak Detection Techniques and Processes to the Liquid Integrity Management website. The report provides examples of various leak detection systems, including methods to enhance leak detection within High Consequence Areas. This report is intended to serve as a technical resource for OPS and State pipeline safety inspectors evaluating operators’ integrity management (IM) programs. Inspectors consider information from a number of sources in determining the adequacy of each IM program. Development of these reports was funded via a Congressional appropriation specifically designated for implementation of IM oversight. These and other similar reports are separate and distinct from the work products associated with and funded via OPS’s R&D; Program. To view a copy of this report, go to:
