Pipeline Intrusion Detection System (PIDS) installed by Cairn India Ltd. (CIL), using existing fiber optic cable and acoustic signature recognition, is one of the most efficient ways to mitigate external sabotage/threats to a long distance pipeline. The system is designed to sense the vibrations, earth movement, and other surface movements associated with such activities. It detects excavation/intrusion activities as the equipment approaches the sensing cable and pipe itself. It is also capable of accurately locating the source of ground vibrations. The system also supports leak detection and pig tracking along the pipeline. By providing an early warning and precise location of an incident, Pipeline Intrusion detection system can help responders prevent costly damages/business/safety impact. Using already existing fiber optic cables along the pipeline, PIDS is the latest proven technology which provides critical information for effective response in event of any undesirable activities along pipeline.
