Oil&gas sector is a crucial area where the IoT is playing a big part in changing the way companies monitor pipes.
Pipelines are an essential part of infrastructure across the world. Whether they are transporting oil and gas, water supplies or substances within chemical plants, they play a pivotal role in keeping the global economy healthy. But when pipelines fail, the results can be catastrophic, threatening both human lives, profits and the environment. Thankfully, innovative new smart monitoring systems are available which can minimize the risk of failure and ensure that piping remains in good condition, for as long as possible. These systems link into the rapidly expanding Internet of Things (IoT), which will play a key role in protecting pipelines in the future.
