Pipeline Security: UK
In August 2006 MRC were approached by Murphy pipelines to assist with
the provision of security services for the natural gas pipeline
crossing Powys, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire. After a brief period
of consultancy MRC set about providing a complete ‘Security Service’.
Under the direction of MRC we established a 24/7 control facility with
static and mobile security teams supported by dog teams across all
sites. Long range communications were set up and priority equipment was
alarmed using wireless and GPS technology. Real time satellite tracking
is also utilised to monitor and record patrol activity and response
times to incidents. Online access to this system enables both MRC
management and Murphy to have access for audit.
Alongside the practical solutions MRC established an information
system for incident analysis and crime reporting, linking and liaising
with the three separate Police Constabularies.
2007 - 2010: MRC continue to provide this service for similar pipeline contracts in Hull, Leeds, Newport and London.
