The development and use of a hydraulic method for locating oil leaks in underground cables is described. The method is applicable at cable terminals, and its overall accuracy in determining the distance to the leak is estimated to be within ±2 percent of the cable length between reservoirs or between a reservior and the nearest stop joint.
