Brugg Cables - Pipe-sensing dreams: feel the value of fibre optics

When it comes to pipe-sensing systems in the oil and gas industry, the versatility and robust nature of fibre-optic cables offer many benefits. Brugg Cables' open technology platform and application-optimised cables help put companies' minds at ease when it comes to structural integrity, and detection of leaks, fires and intrusion, as well as reliable telecommunications.

Brugg Cables is a leading developer, manufacturer and supplier of engineered sensing-cable-system solutions. The real-time monitoring of physical parameters such as strain, temperature, acoustic signal/vibration, pressure, humidity and intrusion is based on optical measurement techniques, such as Brillouin, Raman or Rayleigh scattering, or fibre Bragg gratings.

Brugg offers a wide range of fibre-optic sensing cables and accessories for distributed and multipoint sensing, as well as a range of special telecommunication cables for harsh-environment applications and rough-installation requirements.

Fibre-optic sensing is a well-accepted, versatile and cost-effective technology that is able to evaluate the mechanical health of large structures, perform reliability and damage assessments - which are mandatory in order to optimise energy production and transfer - and perform early detection of incidents that may be detrimental to critical infrastructures and processes.

Brugg offers an open technology platform, and application-optimised cables and accessories for these sensing methods.

Brugg's sensing cables can be used for a wide variety of applications including, but not limited to:

  • pipeline: leaks, fire, structural damage, landslides and intrusion/robbery
  • subsea oil exploration: connecting subsea fibre-optics and umbilical cables
  • downhole: temperature, strain, pressure and acoustics
  • oil rig structure: leaks, fire, intrusion, structural damage and environmental harm
  • LNG structures: leaks, fire, temperature, intrusion and structural damage
  • refineries: leaks, fire, temperature, intrusion and structural damage.

In the oil and gas industry, fibre-optic-cable sensing systems are used upstream, midstream and downstream on structures, or in risers or umbilical cables. The products are suitable for use onshore, offshore and subsea. Cable installations are in oil wells and reservoirs, as well as along pipelines, and in LNG terminals and refineries. Its applications are in process and structure monitoring, and detection of leakage, soil movement, fire and intrusion.
