Case Study June 14, 2010: HELICOPTER LEAK DETECTION SYSTEM = BIG savings

In 2009, a large utility company began using our Helicopter Leak Detection System (HLDS). The natural gas distribution
company wanted a safe and efficient system. Its pipeline leak detection goals:
•  Reduce lost revenue and product
•  Protect the public
•  Decrease a negative environmental impact

Amazing Results
A spokesman for the utility calls the results "nothing short of amazing." After using the HLDS during a large residential subdivision survey (previously done by walking), one utility operator reported:
 95% increase in productivity
•  89% cost savings
During a similar residential survey, another operator reported:
•  60% increase in productivity
•  80% cost savings

One Notable Incident
Two weeks prior to a high-profile 15-day national event (42,000+ daily attendance) in a major metropolitan area, the HLDS identified a natural gas leak while in route to a different survey location. The company investigated and discovered that a leak was coming from customer-owned equipment within the gathering complex. The company was then able to schedule and make repairs without incident well before the start of the event, avoiding what could have been a major disruption with potentially disastrous consequences.

The utility is using our Helicopter Leak Detection System to:
•  Meet leak survey requirements.
•  Survey before and after paving operations.
•  Conduct special surveys where deployment can reduce manpower requirements.
•  Confirm safe operations for employees and the public.
