Gas and oil pipelines have developed into the most economical and safest way to transport energy resources in the modern-day. When building and maintaining pipeline networks, high standards ensure they are safe, reliable, and efficient. Even though natural gas companies adhere to strict standards, factors such as corrosion, accidents, shifting of the earth can cause gas leaks.
Detecting gas leaks early will help prevent methane’s negative effects on both human health and the environment. However, pipeline networks cover a large area making it difficult to maintain and monitor gas leaks.
Gas leaks are a persistent challenge, but one way to monitor them is through modern workflows and digital mapping with GIS. Learn how surveying for gas leaks with EpochField makes detecting gas fast, efficient, and safe.
