PipePatrol leak detection: Best available technology according to AB-864

In October 2015, the State of California issued the Assembly Bill 864 Oil Spill Response: Environmentally and Ecologically Sensitive Coastal Areas, in short AB-864. Following the AB-864, pipelines must be equipped with the „Best available Technology” (BAT), which is defined as “technology that provides the greatest degree of protection by limiting the quantity of release in the event of a spill, taking into consideration whether the processes are currently in use and could be purchased anywhere in the world.” According to AB-864, all new pipelines installed after January 1st 2018 have to use BAT. As of January 1st 2020, all existing pipelines have to be equipped with BAT.

The leakage detection system used on a pipeline is one of the key factors to contribute to BAT. As part of the KROHNE solution portfolio for pipeline management, the E-RTTM based PipePatrol leak detection and localisation system meets the definition of BAT with these key factors:

  • Zero false alarms
  • Most sensitive leak detection system on the market, up to 4 times faster than other systems
  • State of the art pattern recognition technology
  • over 370 pipeline installations in over 20 countries

KROHNE also offers BAT in pipeline instrumentation: our flow, pressure and temperature devices include the most advanced technologies and (self-)diagnostic capabilities available for field instruments, and we have many years of experience in installation and operation of SCADA systems. KROHNE pipeline management solutions provide all information about pipeline statuses to support pipeline operators in making the right decisions.
