Watchdog System


Watchdog, which currently has patents pending, is designed to help
energy companies monitor important status and performance parameters
related to their remote pipeline operations without leaving their
office. Watchdog has three primary functions - transmitting weekly or monthly:

  • Pipe/soil potentials
  • Monitoring pipeline pigs
  • Reporting that pipeline damage has occurred.
By using Watchdog to obtain this important information, energy companies
can save substantial revenues by increasing efficiency, while improving
the safety of their valuable assets.

    How often have we seen pipeline technicians running from road
crossing to road crossing to monitor the passage of pipeline pigs?
Watchdog allows operators to remain at their stations and watch the
passage of pigs on their computer screens. The author has actually
witnessed 32 technicians in five vehicles attempting to listen for the
passage of pigs at road crossings.

    It is not until pipeline operators run either a conventional pig or
an inspection pig that they find damage to the pipe or the external
pipeline coatings that relate to corrosive elements attacking the
pipeline. One major problem in many countries, is third party
illegal tapping. It is only when it is noticed that receipts fall below
the level that has been pumped, that operators either know that they
have a leak or that someone has tapped into the line. Watchdog is able
to detect both the sound and vibration of such an event and immediatel
alert operations personnel. More details
