With over 2,618,320 miles of pipelines that help gather, distribute, and transmit gas in the United States alone, pipelines represent a massive network of energy transport infrastructure. Pipeline operators can monitor the safety of this essential network with a combination of traditional in-ground instrumentation and remote measurement technologies. In this webinar, you'll learn how space-based satellite imagery can integrate into oil and gas sector geohazard management programs.

Learn how ground deformation mapping techniques like Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) increase knowledge and awareness of remote or inaccessible environments at lower costs than traditional visual inspections.

Join 3vGeomatics' Kris Covey, Terra Insights' Kyle Shatzer, and Thurber Engineering's Damian McClarty as they explore how satellite imagery can detect and identify ground displacements that can impact the safety of oil and gas pipeline infrastructure.


Key takeaways from this webinar:  

  • An overview of how InSAR data be used to conduct geohazard assessments
  • How InSAR data fits into other geotechnical data sets
  • Why wide-area, space-based monitoring can provide current and past data about an area of interest
  • What kind of InSAR data is available to stakeholders and how it can be delivered in simple-to-view formats with rapid turnaround times
  • A review of example InSAR data sets
