Pipeline Inventory Monitoring

  • During operation days, a pipeline contains different amounts of products caused by temperature and pressure variations. Inventor.' Monitor stores the quantities of all pipeline segments in the real-time database and compares each quantity to all threshold levels. The system determines the quantities for each pipeline segment and also for every product in multiproduct pipelines

Pipeline Stress Monitoring

  • Based on actual pressure values for monitoring pipeline segments stored continuously in the database, the Stress Monitor permanently analyses pressure trend curves, determines the maximum and minimum possible thresholds, and calculates the impacts of pressure changes.

Pipe Corrosion Monitoring & Tracking

  • Cathodic Protection Sys-tern is an impressive current type cathodic protection method that continuously guards underground pipelines against rust and corrosion in all kinds of soil and weather. This system forces a continual flow of electric current to pass from the embedded anode through the soil and into the pipeline, thus creating an electric field at the surface of the metal. The result is an invisible shield over the entire pipeline length to guard against all corrosive elements.
  • This extends the life of the pipeline and eliminates the need for replacement. In addition, the system is solar powered and runs on solar energy, which is entirely free! This system also stores the energy provided by the solar photovoltaic cells in a battery bank. This enables it to offer a continual energy source, even in remote, un-electrified areas. This makes running costs almost negligible. However, t also compares favorably on investment even when it is worked on AC. Mains. Complex and sensitive pipe handling requires safe, reliable, and economic systems for tracking and monitoring every single pipe. Our product addresses the need for miscellaneous. And often very expensive, tracking, monitoring, and security measures by providing intelligent and tailored solutions from a single source.

Density & Temperature Tracking

  • With the latest global warming, cold and hot weather has affected various pipelines, and it has become necessary to monitor Density and temperature electronically to avoid any cold weather increasing concerns environments.

Batch Tracking

  • Batch tracking monitors each product batch's head, and tail position as it enters a pipeline, calculate the Estimated Time of Arrival (ETA) of each batch at every delivery point continuously, and provides a detailed account of batch volume in the line, delivered, and to be delivered. BATCH Tracking also enables detailed interface analysis to assist the operators in cutting the batch interface correctly so that minimum product is downgraded and no product contamination occurs.
  • Pipeline operators can monitor and control the product batch or quality easily with the help of Batch online tracking. The batch summary report and Graphic User Interface, including the pressure profile along the pipeline, provide valuable management information for pipeline companies to audit and supervise daily operations.

DRA Management of Pipeline

  • DRA (Draw Reducing Agents) reduces pipelines carrying crude oil, refined products, etc. The DRA is a fast-dissolving, ultrahigh molecular weight copolymer that delivers a high pipeline friction reduction. This active polymer dissolves fully in the hydrocarbon fluid and does not coat the pipeline wall or adversely affect the treated hydrocarbon fluids.

Pipeline Black Powder Monitoring

  • Black Powder has become a more widely recognized hazard for safe and economical gas pipeline operation. Black powder is a generic name for small-particle ferrous corrosion by-product
  • Much discussion has been going on as to the causes and sources of the problem, but in general, the following roots of the problem can be discerned
  • Sour gas services, Higher levels of hydrogen sulfide cause the formation of iron-sulfides in the pipeline
  • Moisture. Water remains from the hydro test phase or is present from wet gas. leads to the formation of iron-hydroxides and iron oxides in the pipeline
  • Mill scale deterioration. In older and uncoated pipelines, mil (scale may be of poor quality, and disbandment may be initiated n the pipe manufacturing process.

Pipeline Wall Roughness Monitoring

  • The pipeline configuration, the wall roughness, and the pipe friction factor are standard values during the design stage. The Reta- Time Transient Model tuning methods will compensate for changes at these values. Tuning factors calculated for each pipeline segment are also monitored against thresholds. The wall roughness monitor triggers alarms to indicate new scraper runs.

Pumps and Valves Operation Monitoring

  • Reducing pumping costs and energy consumption is a major objective for all pipeline operating companies, and optimal pumping is essential to keep the lifetime of pipelines. To obtain the required flow within a pipeline, the Pump and Valve Optimization module utilizes the pressure and flow characteristics and pump efficiency curves as well, based on the Real-Time Transient Model and actual hydraulic conditions like line fill, the pipe friction factor, etc. the system determines the most efficient pump and valves operations and provides the results to the operator.
  • Pipelines are equipped for safety reasons with special shutdown and controlling devices. Shutdown Monitor follows the same logic for emergency control and shutdown but permits the setup of different thresholds. The system triggers warnings before any action in the field is automatically started.

Chemical Process in The pipe

  • Iron sulfide, and many variations, can be quickly and efficiently created in a gas pipeline from the chemicals naturally available in many systems. Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) easily reacts with the iron in piping to form iron sulfide as in the formula: H2S + Fe = Fes + H2
  • A small percentage of water (approximately 3 ta 9 percent) aids this reaction. Under more oxidizing conditions, pyrite (FeS2) may form in accordance with the formula: 2H2S +Fe= FeS2 + 21-12
  • In addition to hydrogen sulfide, sulfur can also react to form iron sulfides. Sulfur compounds are present in relative abundance in gas and oil wells. Older fields might have sulfate-reducing bacteria that have grown in the formation or have used chemical injection to increase well production.

Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC)

  • Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) is a serious form of corrosion that can occur in pipelines and produces black powder or iron sulfide
  • MIC is pitting of the pipe wall as a result of the activities of microbial communities in areas that provide their required habitat
  • It can occur on either the inside or outside of the pipe.

The Filtering

  • The most common and historical means of dealing with black powder is to filter it lust before it enters a compressor, station, or processing plant, Filters of various technologies and names are usually specified and supplied as a part of the compressor design package when the unit or piping is installed. Sometimes purchasers specify filter performance requirements in their bid request.
  • Sometimes the design requirements are accurate, and sometimes, they are hardly known. At other times the conditions change after the initial installation. The net result is that regardless of what is requested or promised, it is usually impossible to get field measurements to accurately determine the performance of filters and separators at any one condition.
  • However, it is well-known in technical circles that sulfur, hydrogen sulfide, oxygen, and water vapor, some in parts per million, can be important in forming iron sulfide and other corrosion products. The presence of these components in very small quantities can provide: The constituents for the chemical formation of iron sulfide, The environment for the growth of sulfate-reducing bacteria and acid-producing bacteria whose metabolic processes result: in the production of iron sulfide; and
  • Direct corrosion of steel by oxygen, carbon dioxide, or combinations of the two. Therefore, it is important to test gas composition samples for these Lesser components, to monitor the likelihood of iron sulfide formation.
