Unformatted text preview: Likelihood Ratio (GLR) was compared with the ultrasonic, volume balance, and pressure analysis methods. It was found that GLR is the most economic leak detection method available. GLR finds smaller leaks in the pipeline, which prevents larger leaks from occurring later on. This results in fewer fines for leaks and also less lost production. Simulations were run with varying pipe diameters, price of oil, and cost of leak clean up. Simulations were run for a single pipeline as well as for a gathering/distribution network. In both cases GLR showed to be the best method....
