Technology designed to detect U.S. energy pipeline leaks often fails | Reuters

Colonial Pipeline Co and its peers in the oil and gasoline transport sector, tout high-tech, complex leak detections systems that measure hydraulic data and count on overhead flights and other measures to ensure their pipelines work efficiently and safely.

But the fact these systems did not flag the Colonial Pipeline spill is not unique.A Reuters review of U.S. federal records shows that sensitive technology designed to pick up possible spills is about as successful as a random member of the public like Aldridge finding it, despite efforts from pipeline operators.

We know this.  WE also know that they do not do proper risk assessments and risk mitigations.  The corporations are being measured on profits not safety!
