The pipeline system is used since the 18th Century for commercial activities. The pipelines are considered to be the safest and efficient means of transporting large quantities of oil, gas, chemical, coal and water. According to Canada energy pipeline association the pipelines every day transfer enough amounts of oil and petroleum products to fill 15,000 trucks loads and 4,200 rail cars. The worldwide production of crude oil and gas has been on rise and approximately 85% of all the oil and gas is supplied through pipelines.
The increase in demand for the energy resources has resulted in companies searching for new areas to extract coal and oil. The maintenance and management of the pipeline system are labor intensive and time consuming; hence the companies are developing control systems such as SCADA and monitoring systems to assist operators to control the whole site. Also most of the pipelines are buried underground which makes manual inspection difficult so the technologies such as sensors and pig tracker makes it easy for controller to detect corrosion and cracks in the pipelines. The security solution such as video surveillance, access control and alarm system also help to secure the sites such as metering stations, pumping stations and block valve stations.
