Understand how IIoT has influenced midstream pipeline operations.
This paper focuses on the IIoT and how it is being used to securely connect, and collect data from diverse remote assets, channeling information to advanced operational applications, improving the safe operation of the line, and closing the loop by feeding business applications, thus enabling optimisation, asset management, analytics, business logic and workflow, and modelling/simulation to provide overall efficiency for the petroleum industry, Four key areas of IIoT utilisation for pipeline operators include:
- Environmental monitoring
- Infrastructure management
- Enhancing operations controllers/operators
- Energy management
