I know this is not the right site for this, so please remove if so choose.

Noticed un-named oil companies have the same frequency registered many times in the same area.
I am wondering if this is because every 50 feet or so they installed a transmitter upon the event of a possible leakage. I would assume they use cellular transmitting, but perhaps there is also another rf emergency monitor which possibly explains the large number of duplicate registered freqs in each area.

If you know, give a shout, thanks.

it's like telemetry, the transmitter is low power, they have a gps unit for tracking. it's not scanable. we have 33 pipelines in st.clair county.

Probably SCADA(Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) . Same thing here in Alberta on pipe lines and gas/oil wells. It allows remote monitoring and control of the facilities. Depending on the location the SACDA facilities can be on V/Uhf, Cellular, or Satellite.
