New Technology Adds Another Layer to Pipeline Leak Detection
From the highly-trained operators who work in our computerized control centres around the clock, to our detailed maintenance and inspection programs and the regular patrols we do on the ground and from the air, it's safe to say that there are a lot of eyes on our pipelines as they deliver the natural gas and oil that fuels our society. ...

Testing New Tech in the Real World Not unlike speed skating, the pipeline business is a high-tech, high-performance industry. And thanks to one complex and evolving piece of equipment, the similarities don’t stop there. In 1998, an innovative university research project quickly led to the founding in 2003 of a Calgary-based company focused on real-time...

Eyeing New Technology for Pipeline Leak Detection
When it comes to triple axels, even the most imperceptible of flaws in a figure skater’s performance can impact a final score. So when University of Calgary professor Dr. Wael Badawy was approached to develop a video algorithm to record and analyze the performance of figure skaters for better results, he realized he may have a business with a great number of potential applications on his hands...
