AERIAL VISUAL INSPECTION

Our pilots and technicians are trained on right of way inspections and Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) & BC Oil & Gas Commission (BCOGC) reporting requirements. Through extensive client consultation and rigorous internal training, Integrated Sensing & Surveillance can be your "eye in the sky" providing your organization the information it needs to provide safe services while keeping an eye on the bottom line.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

  • Critical findings reported immediately
  • Daily patrol reports with findings & digital photos delivered via email or accessed online through CIRS.
  • Provision of full reports adhering to provincial standards with digital photos

 

AERIAL THERMAL LEAK DETECTION

 

GEO SPATIAL VIDEO ACQUISITION

 The ISS Geo Spatial Video Acquisition System (gsVAS) starts with our high resolution stabilized daylight camera and/or high resolution thermal imaging system. All video is captured digitally and stored not once, but twice in two different systems in case of data loss. As the video is captured it is geo spatially encoded for use in our Cloud based Inspection Reporting System or in your own solution allowing you to interact with various content layers in an media rich presentation. 

 

The Geo Spatial Video Acquisition System (gsVAS) utilizes an server-based geospatial digital content management platform. gsVAS enables your geographically dispersed team to dramatically leverage project assets and information without any interaction from your IT department.

 

The gsVAS platform gives users of any skill level the ability to geo-tag, store, retrieve, and disseminate mission critical work products using digital assets such as:   

 

  • Full Motion Video
  • ISS (Daily) Inspection Reports
  • Photos
  • Audio Notes
  • Applications - Word, Excel & PDF Documents
  • Background Imagery & Maps

 

The gsVAS is your single point solution for intuitive access to asset data and work product creation, as well as a digital backup of all your raw field data and processed information. Working in a disconnected environment? No problem. gsVAS gives you tools to easily view and manipulate your geodata and rich geospatial multimedia in Esri's ArcMap/ArcGIS Explorer and Google Earth.

 

AERIAL GAS LEAK DETECTION

 

D13 - SUSPENDED WELL INSPECTION

TYPICAL USES

Pipeline Integrity Monitoring

  • High Pressure Gas
  • Produced Water
  • Condensate Liquids product lines

Pipeline right-of-way inspection

Pipeline corridor vegetation management

 

 Utilizing a high resolution infrared camera, thermal video and still images acquired, are geo spatially encoded and made available in variety of deliverable media formats. The ISS Thermal Imaging & Detection system can reveal very small changes in surface temperatures (less than 1.5 degrees celsius) thereby alerting the technician to a possible leak in the underground infrastructure. Video can later be viewed on moving map software at your desktop or viewed through the ISS Cloud based Inspection Reporting System (CIRS) anywhere you have an Internet connection, in near real time.


As a part a part of our regular service, we are always on the look out for findings, such as:

 

  • Exposed pipe
  • Erosion
  • Vegetation issues
  • Third party activity
  • Encroachments
  • Missing signs & markers
  • Specific customer required notations

TYPICAL USES

  • Power & Pipeline ROW Inspections
  • Asset Inventory & Condition Assessments
  • Critical Infrastructure Monitoring
  • Disaster & Emergency Response Efforts
  • Environmental Cleanup and Monitoring
  • Facilities Maintenance & Repair
  • Transportation Corridor & Inventory Projects
  • Wildlife Counts & Species Classification

 

 The ISS Gas Leak Detection System can immediately detect the presence of elevated levels of methane in the air above a pipeline. This system was developed to be used within normal visual inspection flight parameters. Sampling 3 times per second, measurements are updated for every 10m of pipeline covered at a ground speed of 108 km/h, or every 15m at a ground speed of 162 kph. Synchronized GPS precisely locates elevated methane readings.

 

The heart of the system is a CH4 gas analyzer. The unit houses a laser diode, drive electronics, and micro-computer subsystems. A fibre-optic cable carries the laser light to an external measurement probe. The laser light makes four passes through this probe and is focused on a photo-detector. The resulting photo current is returned to the control unit via coaxial cable for analysis.

 

A portion of the laser beam is passed through a stable built-in reference cell inside the unit to provide a continuous calibration update. The measure and reference signals are compared to determine the actual concentration of gas in the probe. This value can be viewed on a display unit and is transferred via serial interface to a data logging PC. A GPS system provides spatial coordinates to the data-logging PC once a second, which enables CH4 data to be mapped along the flight profile.

 

HIGHLIGHTS

 

Each patrol can be delivered on an external drive or via our Cloud based Inspection Reporting System - CIRS


Detailed patrol report with digital photos outlining areas inspected, findings and encroachments.

HIGHLIGHTS

 

  • Provision of full reports adhering to provincial   standards with digital photos and/or close-up of regular video or thermal   imagery.
  • Daily and/or full patrol report with digital photos   outlining areas inspected, anomalies and   encroachments.
  • Post inspection data analysis
  • Fast documentation processing
  • Paper or digital mapping of anomalies and   associated methane levels ( if applicable )

ADVANTAGES

 

  • Fly approximately 100 kilometers per hour   of pipeline
  • Detection levels of Methane below 1 PPM
  • 3 samples per second
  • Simultaneous data logging of GPS position  and concentration level

 

Integrated Sensing and Surveillance Inc. can help you meet your regulatory compliance and corporate responsibilities with our Suspended Well Inspection program. We take our experienced oil and gas operations personnel, combined with a cost efficient aircraft through our joint venture agreement with Heli Source Ltd. and conduct Suspended Well Inspections to meet AER and BCOGC requirements.


Integrated Sensing and Surveillance (ISS) has developed a unique reporting platform that will maintain your records in a safe and easy to access database. Your records can also be made available in our Cloud based Inspection Reporting System (CIRS) as another GIS layer of data that you can access as part of your ISS solution and/or delivered in a hard copy format or other electronic method of your choosing.

 


As part of our inspection package we will:

 

  • Grease wellheads
  • Check pressures and record values
  • Install or replace signage
  • Clear vegetation
  • Ensure valves are chained and locked
  • Complete a wellhead inventory
  • Take detailed photos from the air and on the ground
  • Conduct additional client required task(s)

 

Utilizing the same high resolution spatially encoded infrared camera offered in our Aerial Thermal Leak Detection system, we will flag "hot spots" with their referenced GPS location and report those findings back to you immediately with a backup written report.  We will also include an external drive or we can provide access to our Cloud based Inspection Reporting System (CIRS) to review the mission video and location of hot spots.

BACK TO GALERY

 

Many of the wildfires that occur every year can be linked to the burning of wood debris from the oil & gas and forestry industries during their construction & logging phases. Fire escapes, commonly occur after the initial burning operation as smoldering combustion that can persist for days and even months.


Utilizing the same high resolution spatially encoded infrared camera offered in our Aerial Thermal Leak Detection system, we will flag "hot spots" with their referenced GPS location and report those findings back to you immediately with a backup written report.  We will also include an external drive or we can provide access to our Cloud based Inspection Reporting System (CIRS) to review the mission video and location of hot spots.


ISS will reduce your project costs where possible by grouping your scanning project with other projects nearby to help offset the ferry time to and from the job location.
