Integrated Intelligence Drives Digital Transformation

In a volatile market environment, digitalization is now imperative for every oil and gas enterprise. Indeed, only through digital transformation can intelligent pipeline networks be laid, with the aim of centralizing data, converging systems, and switching on intelligent and efficient operations, with visualized sensing and interaction, a precise match between supply and demand, and an advanced system of predictions and warnings.

Huawei's Pipeline Storage and Transportation Solution integrates devices, cloud technology, and big data, streamlining the lifecycle of pipeline data. Such architecture assists decision-making, driven by data and based on intelligent analytics. It also enables visualized, networked, and intelligent management, delivering comprehensive perception and prediction, integrated management and control, and adaptive, agile optimization.

With proven leadership in communications network security, Huawei helps enterprises of all sizes to ensure secure, reliable, and stable network connections for oil and gas pipeline Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems, building up a firm foundation for future intelligent pipeline construction.

  • Security Protection

    Oil and gas pipelines face high operational risks, with pipeline cracking a far too regular occurrence, leading to the threat of serious consequences.
    Theft and damage are also very real risks, but are hard to mitigate against.
  • Safe Production

    Pipeline Station operations are rarely standardized.
    It's difficult to repair, maintain, and manage pipelines.
    Staff may be unaware of, or even just ignore, certain safety regulations.
  • Operational Efficiency

    Oil and gas pipelines are long by their nature, so inspections are frequently inefficient, occupying far too much human resource and other assets.
    Station operations must shift from distributed to integrated Operations and Maintenance (O&M) inspection.
  • Warning and Prediction

    Pipelines are located in remote areas: it's difficult to detect, let alone quickly handle, accidents.
    Pipes pass through complex, unforgiving terrain and, as such, are vulnerable to natural disasters.

Huawei Intelligent Pipeline Solution

Digital and Intelligent Pipeline

To prevent intrusions, Huawei has developed specialized vibration sensors that work with AI intelligent analysis. The sensors identify external vibration around buried optical cables, for example mechanical or manual excavation. Then, the system generates alarms, protecting the area from intrusions and cables from damage. Huawei also offers an intelligent line inspection solution. The solution delivers a high recognition rate and works with our intelligent video security system. Together, these technologies enable optical-visual linkage, accurately locate abnormal points, and report alarms. As a result, they can automatically detect pipeline intrusions around the clock, sending precise warnings to operators.

Stories of Success

Using Huawei's distributed optical fiber warning system, Shandong Jihua Gas has added unattended inspections to its pipeline O&M. This has helped the enterprise increase efficiency and reduce energy consumption.
