A new dynamic pipeline-failure warning system developed in Germany by Erdoel-Raffinerie Mannheim G.m.b.h. (ERM). an affiliate of Marathon Oil Co., is available for licensing, but as yet no installations are planned for North America.

According to Proprietary Rights Service Corp., which has the ERM process available for licensing, the ERM system is considerably less expensive than other systems. The new system is described briefly.
