Midstream: Pump Station and Pipeline Monitoring
Real-time Monitoring of Oil Pipeline Systems
The role of oil pipelines is to distribute the crude oil from drilling rigs to oil storage tanks, and then to refineries. Typically, pipelines span several thousand miles over harsh terrain and require a central SCADA system based on Synchronous Digital Hierarchy (SDH) and microwave architecture to measure, monitor, and control the status of field instruments across the entire oil flow. Multiple pumping stations, such as block valve stations and compressor stations, are built to keep the pressure in the pipeline constant. Operators can quickly detect, locate, and prevent or resolve leaks, damages, and breaks by deploying a rugged, extendable fiber-optic Ethernet networks. The networks must be robust, highly available, and encompass integrated remote monitoring service support for pipeline operation, thereby improving safety and reliability and reducing the total cost of the pipeline.
Network Requirements   Moxa Solutions
  • SCADA system and network management software at the control center receives and monitors all of the pipeline operational status.
  • A reliable wired or wireless communication network that supports the pipeline-wide remote data monitoring system with video surveillance products, device servers, and remote I/O devices, to seamlessly communicate with the central system.
  • Network with Gigabit performance and fiber support for real-time long-haul video, voice, and data transmission over vast distances.
  • Flexible and extensive network with easy deployment and expansion for large-scale and changeable pipeline applications.
  • Industrial-grade devices meeting exacting standards, with extended operating temperature range, and featuring ruggedized construction to build a rock-solid network in harsh operating conditions.
  • Moxa offers reliable connectivity, superior network efficiency and performance, and instant remote monitoring and access with our highly integrated network solutions, including industrial Ethernet switches, industrial wireless LAN and cellular products, IP video surveillance solutions, event-response-based Active Ethernet I/O, embedded computers, and advanced serial-to-Ethernet servers.
  • Easily troubleshoot the entire network with Moxa's MXview industrial network management software to maximize system uptime.
  • Industrial Ethernet switches with Gigabit performance and single-mode and multi-mode fiber optic interface are available.
  • Turbo Chain, an ultra-flexible and the highly resilient technology with fast fault recovery time of under 20 ms and live node expansion capability without system interruptions, can be used to build a cost-efficient redundant network.
  • Excellent long-term reliability is ensured by ATEX and UL approvals, structural strength, extended operating temperature, as well as corrosion and electromagnetic resistance.
