ABSTRACT of Presentation


This presentation highlights how companies are turning geospatial Big Data into business insight and greatly improved risk mitigation capability.

Leading satellite technology using Multi- & Hyper- spectral (Infrared) imagery provides efficient and effective solutions to increase asset protection and increase uptime. The technology and advanced data processing techniques are scalable to cover entire asset bases and provide solutions that span across several internal business functions. These business users interact with the powerful data through automatic change detection and alert surveillance dashboards, making for more effective asset integrity assurance in Onshore, Offshore, and Coastal Environments.

 This presentation will demonstrate how the Energy and Oil & Gas industry is using this data for:

✔ 3rd Party Damage, Geohazard, & Erosion Prevention

✔ Asset Integrity management IMP

✔ ROW & Shoreline Encroachment Monitoring & Alert Automation 

✔ Small Leak survey / detection & location - Hydrocarbons & Methane

✔ Intelligent Pipeline / Transmission line Network

✔ Environmental Risk Assessments

✔ Vegetation Management & Health

✔ Water Quality - Waster water & water shed - Algae, Hydrilla monitoring

✔ Thermal Analysis - land & water 

✔ Heavy Metal Analysis

✔ Remediation tracking efforts both on land & in water

✔ Security of HCAs, MCAs & Remote Assets

✔ Data continuity along entire ROW / Asset network

✔ Archived Data analysis back to 1984 (if data available)

✔ Exceeds the PHMSA & DOT 195 & 192 Visual Inspection compliance
