Developed in Canada by Imperial Oil and Exxon Mobil this leak detection system is appropriate for locating pinhole leaks in problem pipeline sections that other systems cannot locate. It uses a special odorant which engineers infuse into the pipeline at the well head pump station. After an appropriate amount of time calculated on the individual specifications of the tested pipeline, highly trained K9PTA dog teams with acute scent ability track the pipeline along the route and source and identify molecular microcosmic surface scent caused by the leak. Gas chromatography can commonly detect scents that are one part per billion, but K9PTA trained dogs can detect vapor on a molecular level that far exceeds any mechanical bio-detection device.

The United States alone receives over two-thirds of the crude and petroleum products for more than 55 million residential and commercial customers through pipelines in excess of 160,000 miles based on year 2002 Liquid pipeline operator national mileage information. However, the supply of energy has too often been disrupted by local pipeline leaks causing the company to be found at fault resulting in substantial monetary expenditures for environmental remediation, and the assessment of civil and criminal fines, and most important negative media attention.

K-9 Gas Leak Detection

After getting a call from a building owner in New York city about a gas leak that couldn’t be found in his building, I called my colleague of mine Paris Nicholson 111 of K-9 Pipeline Detection and ask if his dogs could remedy the problem with the training that they had.  He sent one of his graduates and in a short time they located the source of the leak.  Job well done.   Dogs can be used to go to the source of a leak, saving time and money.

A contractual agreement is entered into with the student and K-9 Pipeline Training Academy LLC.
