Project Description

Continuous Methane Gas Emissions Monitoring
with Automated Detection and Alerting

In just seconds, receive notifications of methane leaks with image and video for off-site verification and fast response.

Pipelines transporting toxic fluids between a leech pad and tailings pond in gold mining sites can become damaged and leak.

Failure to detect methane gas leaks early can lead to adverse environmental impacts, product loss, shutdowns, HSE compliance issues, carbon fees, regulatory fines, and reputation damage.

IntelliView’s intelligent optical gas imaging (OGI) system, called the Dual Camera Analytic Module – Methane (DCAM-M), cost-effectively empowers the natural gas industry to meet methane reduction targets and GHG challenges, enhance asset and worker safety and improve business efficiency.

Introduced in 2020, the DCAM-M is the first fixed-format, continuous, automated methane detection and alerting system to utilize FLIR System’s new uncooled (LWIR) thermal sensor, the GF77a Gas Find IR, a lower-cost alternative to “cooled OGI” and gas cloud imagers (GCI) for visualizing methane, sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxide.

System Advantages:

  • 24/7 operatorless monitoring

  • Automated real-time leak analysis and validation (at the edge)

  • Instant alerting with event picture/video for off-site confirmation

  • Low false alarms from environmental factors (glare, rain, fog, snow) and camera shake

  • In-house solution optimization for fast turnaround

  • Web access (live feeds, video, alerts, and settings) reduces site visits

  • Scalable hardware to accommodate additional DCAM-Ms and third-party sensors

  • Scalable software (implement leak detection with intrusion monitoring)

  • Compatibility with existing LDAR systems (e.g. SCADA)

  • Ruggedized enclosure for extreme or hazardous conditions

IntelliView Dual Camera Analytic Module

Handheld OGI cameras are considered “best system for emission reduction” by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and traditionally used for periodic inspections to compliment existing sensors, such as gas sniffers, computational pipeline monitoring (CPM), and laser detectors.  With the DCAM-M, IntelliView brings continuous methane monitoring to high risk oil and gas sites. The AI-driven IR imaging system is also integrated with a HD color camera for verification of thermal images and general remote surveillance.

IntelliView’s IIoT network architecture delivers streamlined data communication and management of multi-site devices via the IntelliView System Console web interface.
