The transportation of crude oil, refined oil, natural gas and various chemical products with fluid properties at normal temperature mainly depends on pipeline transportation. Pipeline transportation of petroleum and its products and various gases from producing areas to refineries or users has been known as one of the safest, most economical and eco-friendly transportation ways. In recent years, with the steady growth of the world economy and the rapid development of energy demand in various countries, the pace of global oil and gas pipeline construction has been accelerated, and the construction scale and construction level have been greatly improved. In addition, more and more enterprises try to use pipelines to transport carbon dioxide and hydrogen under the background of Carbon Neutral. This special issue aims to report the most important and latest technological advances in transportation and treatment of oil, natural gas and non-conventional fossil fuels (e.g., heavy oil, diluted bitumen, shale oil, shale gas and oil sands slurry), as well as carbon dioxide and hydrogen.


Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

Cleaner production and technical processes for oil;

Dehydration, deacidification and liquefaction of natural gas;

Storage and transportation of hydrogen and carbon dioxide;

Energy saving and emission reduction technology in oil and gas industry;

Risk and reliability assessment of pipelines;

Multiphase flow and flow assurance issues;

Novel processing (e.g., subsea) techniques;

Intelligent technologies in oil & gas production;

Prognostics Health & Management in oil & gas industry;

Data analytics in oil & gas pipeline operation and management;

Primary and enhanced production from unconventional oil & gas resources.
