Pipeline Safety Measures
“ Gas Malaysia offers no compromise on safety measures. ”
We have implemented comprehensive safety features during the engineering stage of our pipeline installations, which includes the following:
Protection Against Over-Pressure
We combine pressure regulators, slam-shut safety valves and pressure relief valves to protect against the occurrence of over-pressure.
Protection Against Corrosion
Double protection against corrosion for steel gas pipes consisting of a combination of pipeline coating and a cathodic protection system.
Isolation Valves For All Gas Pipes
Gas pipes have isolation valves placed at strategic locations for easy isolation in the event of an emergency.
Natural Gas Is Odorised
Natural Gas is odorised for early detection of gas leaks.
Gas Pipe Warning Facilities
You may find Gas Malaysia's markings in the form of above ground warning fixtures such as stone markers and signboards to notify on the presence of pipelines running underground.
Pipeline Warning Marker
Daily patrolling are carried out along the pipeline route to complement periodical comprehensive maintenance.
24-hour Operations Control Centre
Our Operations Control Centre (OCC) operates 24 hours a day. It handles emergency calls and communicates directly with Gas Malaysia's emergency response team.
Gas Facilities Information
Our Geographical Information Systems (GIS) provides information on our gas facilities.
Immediate Action On Irregular Pressure
The Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system alerts on any pressure irregularities to enable early detection of abnormal pressure.
Supervision of Third Party Excavations
Our representatives supervise all third party works that are located within close proximity of Gas Malaysia's pipelines.
