Iowa Aerial Support in Pipeline Leak Detection

The state of Iowa is an excellent representation of why it's necessary to take a proactive approach to preventing the leaking of valuable resources into the environment. Not only is it costly to energy resource producers to have their supply lost or displaced, but it is also time consuming and arduous to clean up and some of the substances leaked may prove harmful to fragile ecosystems and the surrounding environments.

Pipeline leak awareness and isolation is imperative as the inhabitants of Iowa know it firsthand. Last year, in 2017, an underground pipeline that spans several midwestern states, including Iowa and carrying nearly 140,000 gallons of diesel fuel ruptured. The leak was initially spotted coming from a 12 inch underground pipeline located on a farm in Worth County, Iowa. Although most start out small, according to utility industry insiders, leaks can rapidly become more catastrophic as the result of the pressure that is applied to the product in the pipeline, meaning that once the leak or rupture has appeared, the product will spill forth very quickly. Luckily the Iowa leak was detected and repairs were initiated before the diesel entered into a nearby water source, Willow Creek and an environmentally protected area.

Pipelines in the United States carrying resources like diesel, gasoline, jet fuel, natural gas, Naphtha, Propane, and Butane must be routinely inspected in compliance with US DOT regulations. Conducted routinely, aerial pipeline inspections and surveys, which deliver a wider field of vision and detect leaks using sophisticated lasered technologies can increase reaction time significantly, avoiding widespread interruption of service and damages to surrounding properties.

Pipeline inspections and surveys

Pipeline inspections and surveys

Aerial pipeline inspections and surveys conducted in helicopters allow for a more expansive vantage point and are more effective and efficient. Helicopters are easily maneuverable and can achieve access to remote or isolated areas, locations lacking adequate infrastructure or service areas that may be situated in higher elevations. They additionally can mitigate the need for supplemental ground crews as the helicopter can fly at lower elevations for extended periods of time allowing for closer and more widespread monitoring of pipelines.


Pipeline Cargo Shipments

Pipeline Cargo Shipments

In order to repair leaks or ruptures or in the construction of new systems, helicopters may be used to convey heavy machinery and materials to site locations or in the transporting of various types of equipment and gear to be used in conjunction with surveying technologies safely and easily. Over the road vehicles or attempts to transport heavy equipment terrestrially can result in delays. Helicopters are used widely in cargo transport as their inherent design capabilities make them ideally suited to land in difficult to access destinations, to convey heavy or outsized loads and to take off from the same location without difficulty.

Emergency Response and Leak Location

Emergency Response and Leak Location

Advanced leak detection systems like LIDAR and GIS make use of sensors and laser technologies to capture images of properties as well as relay discrepancies in scattered light to determine if fractures are present. While these technologies are measuring for anomalies, they are also attempting to detect the gas signatures that could indicate a fracture or rupture in the line. Helicopters are equipped with advanced avionics that supply real-time GPS feeds to precisely identify the location of the detected leak. This allows for an immediate response by utility personnel to repair the leak before widespread outages and damage to surrounding properties occur.


Oil & Gas Crew Transport

Crew Transport

Helicopters are an excellent resource in the transport of personnel to remote, difficult to access or offshore locations. They are often used in the executive conveyance of senior staff members for job-site or electrical grid inspections, to conduct surveys and compliance checks, for crew change-overs and in ad hoc logistical transport to various destinations. When offshore operations or remote centers are hit with weather or when emergencies occur, helicopters may be dispatched to perform pick-up of injured persons, to deliver supplemental work crews, or for SAR efforts.
