Oil sensor cable trials at Cedre

Phase three, the last

Cedre was contracted by Total (Group Technology Committee) to perform assessment tests on different technologies for the detection of oil leaks from underground pipelines.

After an initial laboratory test phase (direct contact with different types of oil), followed by a second phase involving a model system, the last step, currently underway, consists in placing the cables in field conditions in a sand-filled box containing a leaking section of pipeline.
