Pipeline Monitoring for Cathodic Protection and Security

Pipeline monitoring and cathodic protection is essential for maintaining pipeline system integrity. SkyWave satellite products, network and applications provide a vital link between any section of an in-service pipeline and a central monitoring station.

The comprehensive suite of programmable SkyWave terminals and applications provides continuous, near real-time visibility and low-power wireless data messaging over satellite and cellular networks. This makes it easier for technicians to monitor pipeline integrity and performance, detect malfunctions and leaks, prevent theft and ensure cathodic protection—right from their office.

Increase Productivity:

  • Receive telemetry data and alarms from cathodic protection systems in near real-time.
  • Accurately measure and monitor equipment status and production information by monitoring field parameters such as pressure and flow rate.

Streamline Operations:

  • Reduce the costs associated with sending technicians to remote sites to check the status of infrastructure and equipment.

Enhance Security:

  • Monitor pipeline leak detection sensors and interface with SCADA equipment in near real-time to quickly detect and locate leaks or abnormal activity.

Featured Application: IDP-680 with C1D2 Certification – Satellite-Based Pipeline Monitoring and Cathodic Protection

Monitor pipelines with the IDP-680

The compact IDP-680 satellite terminal with C1D2 certification is used to monitor pipelines and control oil & gas installation assets anywhere around the world. It is certified for operation and resistance to chemicals found in hazardous environments. The terminal can be used for conventional SCADA polling, communication with remote devices via Modbus (RS232/RS485), and digital/analog event monitoring.
