Transparent pipeline geohazard management

Natural and human-made geohazards all pose a risk to pipelines. Klarian offers solutions to give you transparency over pipeline geohazard management to provide peace of mind.

Pipelines traverse some of the world’s harshest landscapes. As such, they are at constant risk of geohazards such as landslides, tectonic activity, and melting permafrost, among other types of ground movement. On top of this, human activities such as excavation and construction can also put a pipeline at risk.

What are the impacts of geohazards on pipelines?

Pipeline operators must be wary of geohazards because they can physically move the pipe, change the bend radius, or deform it in another way. Stresses, compressions, and tensions beyond the pipeline's original design all increase the risk of harmful incidents such as leaks or explosions. Operators clearly need effective geohazard identification and risk management.

How do we manage geohazards for pipelines?

Early warning and quick response are vital if pipeline operators want to mitigate the risks of geohazards to their pipelines and the surrounding environment. Pipeline operators conduct extensive risk assessments, geohazard studies and field reports to help identify potential hazards. However, the sheer mix and volume of data can make geohazard assessment and management challenging.

At Klarian, we believe forewarned is forearmed; Digipipe can give comprehensive visibility and prioritisation over your geohazard assessment and survey data. We can also ingest and process data from your sensing technologies to help you spot and react to potential geohazards early. If you're looking to strengthen your confidence in geohazard mitigations and management, Klarian’s pipeline geohazard management solutions have you covered.
