Reporting on global oil and gas pipeline leak detection

Published by
World Pipelines,

Despite strict regulations governing pipeline leak detection systems, globally, the incidents of oil and gas pipeline leaks have witnessed a steady rise. Leakage in pipelines can occur due to various reasons, such as natural damage, ageing, weather conditions, corrosion, tampering, etc. Oil and gas pipeline leakage incidents prove to be extremely adverse not only for the environment, but also for operating companies which are liable to pay hefty amounts in the form of damages and compensation in case of any accidents. In view of these after effects of oil and gas pipeline leakages, governments of various countries have formulated regulations and guidelines, which specify dedicated methods for oil and gas pipeline leak detection, which companies are required to abide with. These standards have made deployment and maintenance of leak detection systems a compulsion, thereby fuelling growth in oil and gas pipeline leak detection market.

Market forecast

According to the report – ‘Global oil and gas pipeline leak detection market forecast and opportunities, 2020’ – global oil and gas pipeline leak detection market is projected to cross US$1.8 billion in 2020. Growth in the market can be attributed to the expanding oil and gas pipeline network across the globe on account of investments in pipeline infrastructure, especially in Europe and Africa. In addition to deployment in new pipelines, leak detection systems are rapidly being used in ageing pipelines.

Ageing pipelines

Across the globe, the average age of pipelines is 30 years, while some pipelines are as old as 100 years. Ageing pipelines, being more prone to corrosion, possess greater risk of leakage, and thus demand use of better leak detection systems. On account of strict regulations and high compensations in case of hydrocarbon spills, ageing pipelines are propelling the demand for pipeline leak detection across the globe. ‘Global oil and gas pipeline leak detection market forecast and opportunities, 2020’ discusses the following aspects of oil and gas pipeline leak detection market across the globe:
