Application of 3S Technologies in the Pipeline Industry

Global positioning systems (GPS), remote sensing (RS) and geograpic information system (GIS) known as 3S, have been widely used in pipeline industry. GPS has been widely used for locating pipeline characters, detecting pipeline movement, collecting geospatial data, etc. GIS is known for managing pipeline geospatial data, environmental analysis, HCA analysis, hazard analysis, and integrity data visualization. RS is known for monitoring geologic hazards threatening pipeline safety, monitoring pipeline leakage, evaluating environmental impact. PetroChina Pipeline Company establishes an enterprise information system with 3S technologies, which has been widely used in pipeline integrity management and daily operations. This paper specifically addresses the method of integrating GPS, GIS and RS, how 3S technologies in-depth apply in pipeline industry, and how to upgrade pipeline operator's management level.
