Abstract

Submarine pipelines play important role in offshore hydrocarbon transportation. Various tools and techniques are used to ensure the maximum safety of the submarine pipelines. The resulting consequence of these tools and techniques is the ever increasing data volumes, with the management and subsequent analysis of the data becoming more and more of an issue (Rasmussen, 1998). Pipeline engineers have to take times in order to analyse these datasets for decision making from several separated systems where these datasets are stored. Evidently, this is an inefficient act to the industry and it is more worsened and worrisome if the analyzed results are not accurate and subsequently the required information cannot be integrated. To overcome this problem, the conventional Database Management Systems (DBMS) are not practical as most of these datasets are geographically referenced. As a solution, this research attempts to elaborate the implementation of GIS technology for submarine pipeline routing design and evaluation.
