Crude oil – The black gold offered by nature is one of the most utilized resources by mankind, which makes life easier and sophisticated. There are multiple organizations across the globe, that works on extraction of crude oil and processing it to extract multiple products that are used in daily life. The crude oil and natural gas are extracted from both onshore and offshore by using the innovation and technology.
Though the extraction process is riskier to some extent, the evolving technology has made is possible and safer without disturbing the ecosystem on both land and water. Earlier the oil and gas were transported through cargo ships that facilitates liquid transportation on water, and on reaching shore containers were utilized to get them to the processing stations. This was not economically feasible and also had risks involved, since it is a highly flammable substance, subsequently there was a huge time span needed to reach the destination.
To overcome the limitations, safety issues and time delay, the method of pipeline transportation was adapted. In this case although laying the pipelines was a bit expensive and tedious process, it gave an awesome result. There was only maintenance cost involved after laying it, which avoided a huge amount of money and manpower involved in transportation of every single unit. It facilitates 24×7 transportation from sites on both onshore and offshore areas with an ease, and maximum safety.
And also, one of the major advantages of pipeline transportation is that it can be laid through the terrains that are considered to be most difficult and dangerous, as well as under water region. This specific characteristic facilitates point to point transportation of resources with minimal energy consumption, and helps the organizations in investing on technologies that makes it safer to transport the black gold thousands of miles on land and water.
There are multiple technologies that are available to have a constant check, and monitor on the amount of product being pushed into the pipeline from source and cross check it in the destination region. If by chance there is any leakage in between, exact location can be determined and the transportation is immediately sealed to ensure safety, after performing the maintenance operations the transportation is resumed.
