One of the major challenges for researchers and governments across the world is reducing resources-waste or loss. Resources loss can happen if there is not a capable control system that contributes to environmental change. The specific aim is to create user-friendly control and monitoring system to reduce the waste in resources. New Artificial intelligence techniques have been introduced to play an important part in developing such systems.
In oilfields, the oil is extracted then distributed via oil pipes until it reaches the end consumer. This operation will occur without a full and complete monitoring for the oil in the pipeline’s journey to the provider. Although, the existing oilfield monitoring systems can communicate locally but they will not send information back to the main provider. That means the provider is not aware of the whole circumstances happened in the transportation process. That gives the provider no control on the process. For example, a sudden decision from the main provider to stop transporting to a specific destination or knowing where the leakage is and which pipe is leaking in the pipelines grid.
This paper, introduces for the first-time oilfield pipeline Neuro-fuzzy (NF) supervision system using Simscape simulation software package. This system can be the first step solution to keep real time communication between the main provider and the oil transportation process in the oilfields and enables the provider to have full supervision on the oil pipes grid. The simulation supervision system illustrates a clear real-time oilfield pipeline grid that gives the provider the ability to control and monitor pipeline grid and prioritise the recovering process. The two parameters selected for control and monitoring were volume and pressure. The results in this paper show full control for the NF supervision system on the transportation process.
