Use satellite monitoring to assess land movements and detect changes on the ground.
Over the last years, external interference and ground movement have represented 28% and 15% respectively of the pipeline incidents reported (source EGIG 2016). Incidents caused by external interference and ground movement are characterised by potentially severe consequences. This emphasises their importance to pipeline operators and risk managers.
Non-invasive satellite technology offers clear cost-benefits by providing high-precision measurements of the stability of both the asset and the surrounding area to mitigate long-term threats.
We monitor land movements along entire networks, highlighting hotspots where changes in motion trends occur. The frequency of monitoring is tailored to clients’ needs.
We highlight assets exposed to stress that may require further investigation or remediation.
Third party interference
Detect changes on the ground
We map surface changes, e.g. new structures, construction or other issues encroaching on your assets.
With targeted change detection, we offer frequent surveying in and around important infrastructure.
Spatially dense and precise results
Measurement point density can exceed 10,000 points/km2. Movement precision is typically around 1 mm/year.
Completely remote, satellite monitoring is unrivalled in its ability to map large or small areas.
Repeated satellite image acquisition allows frequent surveying in and around important infrastructure.
No other technology provides such dense measurements at a fraction of the cost of other survey techniques.
Satellite data archives back to 1992 and can be processed to assess past movement trends and third party interference events.
