 Monitor potential pipeline corridor encroachment by communities

Challenge ID:

HCP-5405

Originator:

Onshore: Hatfield

Title:

Monitor potential pipeline corridor encroachment by communities.

Theme:

ON 5.4: Logistics planning and operations - Monitoring of assets

Consortium Lead:

Hatfield

Interviewed Company:

Hatfield

Geography:

ON.REG.00 - Generic onshore

Challenge Description

What is not possible / not adequately addressed at present?

Need for improved detection and monitoring of encroachment over time by communities that are proximal to pipeline infrastructure.

What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Potentially hazardous to crews and community due to operations.

Thematic information requirements:

Ortho base images

Distribution and status of infrastructure

Distribution and status of assets

Land use

What do you currently do to address this challenge? 

How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Carry out field surveys and aerial surveys.

What kind of solutions do you envisage could address this challenge?

Use UAVs to monitor.

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need?

Are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

Already feasible and cost-effective with moderate resolution optical imagery (5 m) but it is important to have access to archives to achieve a baseline.
