Automated Realtime Methane Leak Detection with Uncooled Thermal Imaging

For unmanned and remote gas operations spanning production, processing, and distribution, reliable continuous methane monitoring is instrumental in meeting methane mitigation targets and goals in the areas of safety and efficiency. Existing methane detection technologies, however, can be cost-prohibitive to most operators or impractical for certain applications. The integration of IntelliView’s proprietary and patented machine learning image processing technologies with FLIR’s uncooled thermal imaging has enabled a cost-effective continuous monitoring, realtime detection and notification system for methane leaks.

This webinar introduces the first automated uncooled thermal imaging system featuring the FLIR GF77a and the IntelliView Dual Camera Analytic Module – Methane or DCAM-M. At the forefront of oil and gas digitalization, the edge-based solution is offered in a scalable and SCADA compatible IIOT platform to provide simplified off-site monitoring of above ground natural gas facilities.

Learn about:

  • The capabilities and performance of the GF77a for methane visualization in field applications
  • The advantages of using automated analytic thermal imaging in an overall methane mitigation strategy
  • Engineering an automated methane detection system to ensure predictable performance criteria balancing cost, false alerts, and coverage.
