PipelineSentry™ was born out of the simple idea of doing things better. PipelineSentry™ can integrate with your existing systems and use your available data to perform engineering calculations and assessments on your subsea pipelines. Alternatively we can store the data on our secure servers.

Our Team Members

James Wardrop - Owner and Engineer
Father, Husband and founder of the Company. With over 14 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry spanning across Operators, EPCs and Offshore Construction Companies.  

James saw an opportunity to manage pipeline data better and demonstrate the “why” in why should we do this.  
Throughout his career he listened to the issues affecting the end user and the same things kept coming up. By understanding the multiple stakeholders needs and requirements in pipeline design construction and operation the idea for pipeline sentry was formed.

In 2020 with the support of the OGTC techX program and an amazing team 14 years of wondering and tinkering has crystalised into a reality.

Our Journey So Far

PipelineSentry™ is entering its 3rd iteration with the help of the OGTCs TechX program.
The product has evolved from a pc based calculation tool, to  cloud based data storage and calculation tool to a fully immersive 5D digital twin for your subsea assets.
Our diverse and agile team has achieved so much with so little and are looking forward to helping your organisation accelerate your digital transformation.

Frustrated Engineer

An engineer performing pipeline assessments is frustrated at the amount of time required to find data and the number of times copy and paste is used between excel spread sheets.

By utilising excel Vlookup he decreases the time to perform engineering assessments by 80 percent.  

He tries to pitch it to the company he is working for but no funding is allocated. The idea is born.


Automation Begins

The engineer starts creating excel spread sheets to automate engineering calculations and structure data in a way that is retrievable by simple coding.


PC Based Version Created

The Engineer hires a  python specialist to take the excel sheets he has created and digitize the code. A PC based version of the product is created.


Funding For Online Platform

The engineer is awarded a grant through NERAS innovation voucher program.

The funds are used to engage with a developer to create a fully scalable online platform for digitizing pipeline data and automating engineering assessments on subsea pipelines.


EngTech Awarded Top 8 Company Spot In OGTC's Accelerator Program

The company is awarded a place in the OGTCs TECHx accelerator program. Out of over 130 companies only 8 are chosen.

The product is now evolving into a customisable 5D digital twin for subsea pipelines linking data and Finite Element Analysis software to digitize data automate engineering, all in a fully immersive 3D environment.
