Oil and Natural Gas are major sources of energy that is used all over the World, The transportation of these resources can be done using pipeline all over the country. The pipeline helps in the easy transportation of the resources from the manufacturing place to the consumers. These may need safety checks and timely inspections to ensure that they are safe for transportation, for which many reports are to be generated and maintained for future references.
Reports from three various time periods are maintained and they are pipeline history report, current pipeline report and pipeline activity report. These reports are maintained to have brief details about the capability, activity and health status of the pipelines.
The below-given points are a few reasons for the usage of the pipeline report that is needed for the maintenance of the pipeline.
- Safe transportation: The transportation of gas through the pipeline is the safest way of transporting gas. Thus, the maintenance of the pipelines is essential for long-lasting usage of the pipelines. The details about the pathway and the pressure given on the pipeline by the external sources are maintained and checked upon regularly in a regular time interval.
- Long-distance and directions: The long distance between the source and the consumer point is a major reason that may cause the pipeline to get damaged or the reason for installation to get tougher in a few areas. As the distance gets longer the installation of the pipelines gets difficult and the whole area where the pipeline is to be installed gets affected. For example, the pipeline installation in the underground needs the ground to be opened which may take days and for closing the ground there must be more careful because any damages made to the Pipeline Directory will affect the flow of the gas through it.
- Usage of Pipeline Inspection Gauges: The pipeline inspection gauges are used in the inspection which is used to record various details from various time periods and is easy for the retrieval of the data for future reference. This Gauge is useful in the recording of data related to the flow of the source through it and for easy investigation of the surfaces from inside the pipeline. These data are helpful for the estimation of the withstand capability of the pipeline and to get immediate information on the damages that may occur in the near future.
- Usage of Fiber optics and Automations: The fiber optic sensor is attached to the pipelines for easy recognition of damages in the pipelines. The cameras are sent into the pipeline and are directed by the automated machines which help in recognizing and recording the data related to the damages and flow constraints that occur in the pipelines.
The above features are helpful in recording the data for the Gas pipeline report and also are the easy methods to find the faults or the damages that occur in the pipelines. The immediate indication of damages will ensure the safety of the pipelines.
