The birth of the new West African Gas Pipeline involves the construction and operation of a regional high-pressure gas transmission system that will supply natural gas produced in Nigeria to thermal power stations in Benin, Togo and Ghana.
Considering negative reports on the nation’s economic status, pipeline construction in the U.S. is experiencing a healthy market as operators and producers continue stepped-up activity supported by projects to move natural gas to the Midwest and the East Coast from Mid-Continent shale plays and the Rocky Mountains.
This article shares experiences we have gained working with several customers to geo-code leak and pipe inspection reports and associate them with the pipe segment in the GIS that best matches the address location and other attributes of the report.
The Distributed Network Protocol (DNP3) provides many advantages over conventional protocols in a wide range of natural gas applications including the monitoring and control of pipelines, gathering systems and distribution systems. Here are some key reasons why one should consider applying DNP3 for communications with pipeline remote devices.
