Hiber, the IoT-as-a-service provider that serves the oil and gas sector, has expanded the capabilities of its HiberHilo solution to transform remote pipelines into continuous digital streams of operational data. HiberHilo pipeline monitoring makes it economically feasible to include constant monitoring of even the most remote pipelines to reduce risk, increase uptime, and lower operational and maintenance costs.
Pipelines present potentially enormous environmental and reputational risk to oil and gas operators, but until now, monitoring them has been expensive. For example, the pigging of a pipeline is important for maintenance and to optimize flow, but it is costly. By monitoring the pressure, flow, or temperature of a pipeline and its contents at strategic points, HiberHilo helps optimize the operation of pipelines at a low price. This is especially valuable for pipelines in gathering networks or remote parts of transmission networks. The ease of installation and low costs of HiberHilo are a real benefit to those who cannot afford existing solutions on the market.
