OptaSense secures oil and gas pipelines and facilities contract in Middle East & North Africa

OptaSense

Real-time asset intelligence company OptaSense has been awarded a contract to protect a strategic asset under high threat of terrorism and theft in a new Middle East and North Africa contract, worth $6 million. The project will bring the total amount of pipelines in the Middle East and North Africa under protection from OptaSense to 1,000 kilometres. This comes at a time when security issues and the need for asset integrity in the oil and gas industry are extremely high.

The project will take delivery of the latest version of the OptaSense system, called V3.0, which in addition to third party interference (TPI) detection, incorporates the latest development in leak detection, including a unique four mode leak measurement capability. The four measurements cover, diverse pressure pulse, acoustic emissions, strain and a new distributed temperature gradient system (DTGS), capable of measuring a temperature change of 0.001 centigrade. 

The contract will be delivered from the regional headquarters in Dubai, opened last year.
