General description

Overview of Challenge

5

What is the nature of the challenge? (What is not adequately addressed at present?)

Technology to enhance companies' ability to limit oil theft through the tapping of pipelines  is needed.

6

Thematic information requirements

9. Obtain detailed imagery of assets,

7

Nature of the challenge - What effect does this challenge have on operations?

Loss of HC, potential environmental damage, safety hazard following tampering of infrastructure

8

What do you currently do to address this challenge?/ How is this challenge conventionally addressed?

Ground patrols can be deployed as a deterrent but these are costly and not full-proof.

9

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

Very high to high resolution EO data with high repeat cycles can be used to map changes in land use, such as pipelines. Tapping of pipeline has to be visibly detectable

 

10

What is your view on the capability of technology to meet this need? – are you currently using EO tech? If not, why not?

EO could be a useful complimentary technology
