Curiosity Technology Adapted to Detect Gas Leaks from Pipelines

Innovation adjusted from NASA's Mars wanderer program is being utilized to build up a hand-held gadget that will help discover and settle petroleum gas spills from gas pipelines, with the objective of diminishing emanations of nursery grasses. 

As a team with NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) reported that it is trying best in class innovation adjusted from NASA's Mars meanderer program. Initially intended to discover methane on the Red Planet, this laser-based innovation is lightweight and has better affectability than methane, a noteworthy segment of flammable gas. The innovation connected back on Earth helps control PG&E groups utilizing a tablet interface to distinguish conceivable release areas, optimizing their capacity to repair gas spills. 

"Our quest for this innovation is proof of our sense of duty regarding our central goal of turning into the most secure, most dependable utility in the nation. We are utilizing out-of-this-world innovation to discover and settle even the littlest breaks in our framework. By putting resources into advancement today, we are helping manufacture a positive vitality future," said Nick Stavropoulos, PG&E's official VP of gas operations. 

On September 29, another law, SB 1371, required the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) to open a procedure to receive standards and strategies that limit petroleum gas spills from gas pipelines, with the objective of diminishing outflows of nursery grasses, for example, methane. 

The hand-held gadget is the most recent bit of cutting-edge spill recognition innovation being grasped by the utility and is relied upon to be accessible for use in 2015. The advancement of this device is a piece of a shared research exertion at Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI). 

"It's remunerating to be engaged with ventures that make an interpretation of JPL mechanical abilities to address industry issues, advances which eventually should help improve security and unwavering quality. PG&E's part as an associate with JPL on our PRCI-supported exertion is fundamental to productively adjust the JPL methane sensor into a field-prepared hand-held hole location framework," said Andrew Aubrey, JPL technologist. 

Pacific Gas and Electric Company, an auxiliary of PG&E Corporation (NYSE: PCG), is one of the biggest consolidated petroleum gas and electric utilities in the United States. Situated in San Francisco, with more than 20,000 workers, the organization conveys a portion of the country's cleanest vitality to almost 16 million individuals in Northern and Central California.
