Oil and Gas pipelines monitoring using IoT platform
Keywords:Wireless Sensor Network (WSN), Wi-Fi Module ESP-01, Arduino Mega, Monitoring and Communication Unit (MCU).
The early detection of pipeline breaches in the pipeline monitoring system is a crucial concern for oil management firms. Diverse technologies have been created to identify pipeline leaks. However, they need development as the current systems take a long time to detect leaks. As a result, it can contribute to oil waste and natural disasters. This paper provides a system for detecting pipeline leaks using pressure, water-flow, Accelerometer, and voltage sensors coupled to an Arduino mega microcontroller with BLYNK IoT platform real-time monitoring. It is obvious from the data that the Oil Pipe Monitoring System is capable of displaying pipeline flowrates, pressures, and acceleration. When a leak occurs or an event occurs during operation, a message is delivered to the responsible technical individual indicating which pipe is leaking. This project successfully established an Internet of Things (IoT) platform to monitor pipeline events in real-time.
