Fiber optic third-party interference detection system for buried pipelines

Third-Party Interference (TPI), including unauthorized excavation in a pipeline’s right-of-way, is a leading cause of pipeline accidents and loss. A single pipeline incident can have devastating effects, causing property destruction, service interruptions, environmental damage and death – all of which can cost pipeline operators millions of dollars in financial losses. Further, incidents involving oil theft can have a significant economic impact by going unnoticed for long periods of time.

Senstar’s FiberPatrol-PL is an advanced TPI detection system specifically designed to promote the physical security of buried pipelines. The system uses fiber optic cable buried along the pipeline to detect and locate ground vibrations and acoustic signatures associated with TPI activity.

FiberPatrol-PL detects TPI activity that threatens pipeline integrity: machine or manual digging, heavy machinery operating nearby, and even people walking in the vicinity of the pipeline. The system’s advanced detection algoritms optimize the detection of TPI activity while rejecting nuisance alarms. It can also reject vibrations caused by traffic on roads and railways running parallel or perpendicular to the pipeline.
