Midstream Oil and Gas Solutions SCADA Systems Real-time Monitoring of Oil Pipeline

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, 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 network. The network must be robust, highly available, and include an integrated remote monitoring and surveillance service for pipeline operation to improve safety and reliability and reduce the total cost of the pipeline.Midstream Oil and Gas Solutions
