CALL FOR INNOVATION - ACOUSTIC TECHNOLOGY FOR GAS DISTRIBUTION PIPELINE INSPECTION

19 OCT 2017 GDN-17-08 The UK GDNs operate and maintain approximately 300,000km of buried pipeline. Techniques to locate pipe features have improved significantly and operatives no longer automatically undertake excavation work to uncover pipe features. Innovative techniques have been developed to provide detailed identification of pipe features. These techniques produce valuable information in emergency scenarios and give confidence of pipeline geometry and location whilst reducing the excavation impact of operational activities. Although successful at gathering detail and reducing excavation, access is still required to the pipe at relatively short intervals.
