City Of Ottawa Deploys SmartBall® platform to locate leaks with sub-meter accuracy
When your inspection task is to survey a critical pipeline for leaks, nothing is more satisfying than trusting your technology to predict the leak location and then standing by as the client excavates the area to find a flow of water within one meter of exactly where you said it would be.
Remote Tracking More Reliable Than Batch Tracking
Oil and gas pipeline owners routinely conduct inspections of their assets by using inline inspection pigs. These tools are used to identify defects within the pipeline and need to be tracked throughout an inspection. Pipeline owners have several options to track a pig such as legacy tracking, remote tracking, and batch tracking, which is sometimes considered as a viable alternative to legacy or remote tracking.
Improving the reliability of inline inspection tools improves overall pipeline integrity
The oil and gas pipeline industry has been under close scrutiny for a long time. It leads the way as one of the most regulated industries in the world, and for good reason.
Pig Tracking Lower Cost Per Mile More Precise Results
Pig tracking can be expensive (as much as 25% of the ILI budget) and costs can vary from vendor-to-vendor, especially when you factor in the different methods used to track pigs, such as remote tracking and conventional tracking.
Reducing costs through precise remote tracking
Historically, inline inspection (ILI) tools used to identify defects on oil and gas pipelines have been tracked by field teams. However, recent technology advancements now allow pipeline owners to track pigs remotely, which is a much safer and cheaper alternative to traditional tracking.

How city of Belmont manages its metallic force mains
To help budget over the next 20 years, the City of Belmont (City) wanted to proactively understand and assess their force mains through a comprehensive condition assessment. To address its goal, the City contracted Pure Technologies (Pure) to deploy a wide range of both proprietary and third-party technologies and techniques to achieve a holistic assessment.
Precise Pig Tracking From Start To Finish Purehm
PureHM has developed a web-based software called LiveMap that tracks a pig throughout the entire ILI run. LiveMap provides real-time updates via email or SMS with the pig’s location, speed, and estimated time of arrival to ensure that there is better visibility for stakeholders during a project.
Reducing the cost of inline inspection
Pigging is the most common form of inline inspection used by oil and gas pipeline owners. There are two ways of tracking a pig through a pipeline; legacy tracking and remote tracking. Historically, pigs have been tracked using legacy methods, where a field technician would follow the pig from site to site to confirm its location and ensure the pig reaches the trap.
