Hiber, the IoT-as-a-service provider that serves the oil and gas sector, has expanded the capabilities of its HiberHilo solution to transform remote pipelines into continuous digital streams of operational data. HiberHilo pipeline monitoring makes it economically feasible to include constant monitoring of even the most remote pipelines to reduce risk, increase uptime, and lower operational and maintenance costs.
“Our oil and gas customers have been extremely satisfied with the capabilities of HiberHilo on wellheads, and challenged us to deliver a more comprehensive network view of their extraction and distribution operations – especially those situated in remote areas where it’s economically unfeasible to implement an over-the-air digital connection,” said Hiber CEO, Roel Jansen.
Pipelines present potentially enormous environmental and reputational risk to oil and gas operators, but until now, monitoring them has been expensive. For example, the pigging of a pipeline is important for maintenance and to optimise flow, but it is costly. By monitoring the pressure, flow, or temperature of a pipeline and its contents at strategic points, HiberHilo helps optimise the operation of pipelines at a low price. This is especially valuable for pipelines in gathering networks or remote parts of transmission networks. The ease of installation and low costs of HiberHilo are a real benefit to those who cannot afford existing solutions on the market.
“With HiberHilo’s new, expanded capabilities, we can deliver reliable monitoring services to remote pipelines at a breakthrough price. This means operators gain access to efficient and economical operation of more of their pipelines, enabling higher throughput, improved pipeline integrity and safety across more of their pipeline networks – while meeting risk-management and sustainability goals,” added Jansen.
