Pran3rdG: For those faraway and hard-to-reach terrains.
A two-pronged solution with both hardware and software, the Unmanned Surveillance System (UAS) has been widely used to monitor third party activity and geohazard hazards along the pipeline’s right of way. Currently, the manual interpretation of massive dataset in videos and images is a lengthy process, using up a lot of resources and is prone to human error.
With 70 per cent accuracy from validated tests, Pran3rdG performs faster, safer and cheaper than ground and air patrol with reduced risks of missing important spots as it covers a broad coverage area.
PrAnCorr: Save your metal, save your time.
Tested under multiple types of product services and excelled in durability testing, PrAnCorr acts by predicting internal and external corrosion for onshore and offshore pipeline by using big data analytics. It is an analytic tool that automatically predicts a pipeline’s defect location and size using Machine Learning (ML).
With real-time monitoring and tapping into big data, PrAnCorr is able to provide analysis and facilitate seamless decision making via the PETRONAS Integrated Pipeline Integrity Assurance Solutions (i-PIMS). Its predictive ability eliminates downtime in operations that can save up to 20 per cent of operating expenditure through reduction of intelligent pigging cost, chemical injection and operational pigging optimisation.
PrAnSpan: Optimised survey vessel with prediction.
A new approach in managing offshore pipeline dynamic freespan that utilises machine learning and combines a number of data types such as asset specific, metocean and historical freespan.
PrAnSpan is a web-based predictive analytic algorithm and dashboard that predicts free span formation and behaviours along pipelines at selected years.
Its predictive analytic model is validated against accuracy model as well. It has the potential to optimise operational expenditure by 20 per cent for underwater inspection and RM500,000 per location for decision-making on immediate repair intervention. It also reduces GHG emission with prolonged usage of inspection vessel and equipment deployment.
ORCA: No pigging, no problem.
This new intelligent pipeline integrity management system technology consists of hardware (Acoustic Emission sensors, X-Proof Permanent Clamping Mechanism), and software (risk assessment tool), which enables real-time assessment of pipeline integrity status using real-time and historical pigging data. Ideal for unpiggable pipelines, ORCA continuously collects, processes and analyses data to detect, identify and locate corrosion activities for real-time and future pipeline integrity projection.
Reducing cost, ALARP risk and downtime all at once, this solution can save up to 20 per cent of operational expenditure in maintaining the integrity of an unpiggable pipeline system.
These breakthroughs are set to redefine the landscape of pipeline management with their offer of risk-minimised, cost effective and sustainable ways to better pipelines. Safer and more sustainable ways are already here. Now it is up to us to adopt them.
