As an infrastructure, pipelines are vulnerable to damaging conditions that warrant action, which results in a loss of profit and extra labor. Sensors are placed along a pipe which can set off an alarm if a measured value exceeds safe levels. At this point, it is reactive instead of preventative maintenance. Using data from the sensors, we anticipate the ability to forecast when an alarm will go off within an hour. With the ability to accurately predict alarms, action can be taken to avoid a loss of profit. Without notification of anomalies, preventable maintenance, cleaning, or catastrophic failure may take place.
