Wireless sensor networks (WSN) is considered an effective technique to collect oil and gas transmission pipeline information. The studies that use conventional technologies (such as GPRS, microwave, radio modem and cables etc.) to collect these pipelines state information have the disadvantages of high cost of system maintenance and long data packet delay. The usage of WSN in oil and gas pipeline monitoring system is expected to be able to overcome the above difficulties. This paper proposes an efficient pipeline state information collection algorithm based on sensor node line deployment strategy and data fusion strategy in WSN. And the analysis result of this algorithm shows that the proposed algorithm can remarkably improve the network performances on delay and energy, ensure the urgency data to be propagated effectively and prolong the network life span. It is characterized with high performance, low cost and control efficiency.
