iOmniscient Wins Award for Major Oil Pipeline Protection Project
iOmniscient has just received the PACE Zenith Award in the “Mining, Minerals & Exploration Industries in Australia” category for its implementation of iQ-Oil & Gas for British Petroleum in Azerbaijan.
The British Petroleum (BP) pipeline in Azerbaijan is one of the world’s longest oil pipelines and passes through very harsh dessert terrain with extreme environmental conditions. The previous system implemented by BP was not able to detect people or objects moving slowly or in the dark and provided a high number of false alarms.
For this reason, BP selected iOmniscient to implement its iQ-Oil & Gas system for the project combined with the HealthCheck system to detect if a camera is malfunctioning or damaged. The system was smart enough to differentiate between human intruders and small wildlife and being armed with its Nuisance Alarm Minimization System (NAMS) it could operate with a minimum of false alarms.
BP was delighted with the results from the Azerbaijan project that it has now standardized on using iOmniscient’s intelligent technology for all its pipelines worldwide.
iOmniscient’s comprehensive portfolio of Intelligent Video Analytics and Automated Surveillance products are not just for security but to improve the efficiency of operations for both the Mining and the Oil and Gas industries. Applications are available for safety, security and the operational efficiency of mines, refineries, rigs and pipelines and also for the infrastructure that they use such as the roads, trains and ports (land and seaside).
The PACE Zenith award joins a long list of iOmniscient’s international awards, including IFSEC 2011 “CCTV System of the Year” for the world’s first Face Recognition in a Crowd system and the Global Security Challenge 2010 for crowded places.
