Aerial inspections in Portugal

Aerial gas pipeline inspection services in Portugal

Ensuring the integrity of REN’s gas pipeline. CGI helps Portugal’s gas transport operator to advance their digital transformation to enable a safe, secure and sustainable future.

CGI uses Pergam Gas Leak Detectors

Since 2018, CGI has provided REN with aerial inspection services via helicopter to detect gas leaks and third-party interferences and to inspect points of periodic observation.
The aerial service uses advanced laser methane absorption sensor technology from our partner Pergam- Italy. It detects leaks by emitting a laser at a particular wavelength and analyzing the light reflection to determine how much was absorbed by the methane leak plume.

This methodology is used by REN to reduce methane emissions in alignment with the OGMP 2.0 (Oil & Gas Methane Partnership), that REN is a member of, thus contributing to the sustainability objectives of the RE Group.
