Application of Integrated Control Systems for Improved Protection, Security and Reduced Maintenance Costs of Pipelines


Monitoring, control, and communication systems (MCCS) is an essential part of the pipeline installation, management and maintenance programs which typically involve complex tasks during the service life of the pipelines. Also, feedback control system is vital to assure the functionality of the facility. Integrating the MCCS into one versatile unit could reduce the manpower needed for monitoring, decreasing the sources of human errors, and costs associated with maintenance. Such system would inherently improve coordination efforts in response to emergency management needs at times like post disaster (i.e., earthquake, storms etc.) and/or military conflicts, or terrorist attacks. Open Architecture Solution is a concept for MCCS which is based on integration of any form of original signal and any and all forms of communication (i.e., network, wireless, satellite, etc.) to provide feedback to the devices needed for control of the environment. It would eliminate the need for personal entries to make adjustments to equipments and devices especially in hard to reach places or in remote an inaccessible areas. This paper will summarize the areas of potential application of this system, which was originally developed for telecom industry, in pipeline construction/management and will describe the capabilities of this system through past experiences and examples of its use in ongoing projects.......
