Neptune Oceanographics provide field proven pipeline leak detection systems to work with a variety of subsea inspection techniques. These include systems for ROV, AUV, PIG as well as diver held solutions for shallow waters.

Neptune Methane Leak Detection
For detection of subsea methane leakage, Neptune’s SNIFFIT is deployed. Fluorescence is not possible for detection of methane in water.

The SNIFFIT can detect methane leakage in water and display the data in real time. It is primarily a methane detector but will detect all gaseous hydrocarbons. A new version of the Hydrocarbon Detector has recently been developed that will detect mono ethylene glycol (MEG).

SNIFFIT is a unique, real-time system for gaseous hydrocarbon detection in water. In the offshore oil and gas environment, SNIFFIT is an essential tool for detection of gaseous leaks from pipelines and other subsea installations. The simple to operate system is designed for easy fitting aboard ROVs, AUVs and other underwater vehicles. Measurements are made directly by the SNIFFIT system and results are displayed in real-time via the user-friendly software package.
