Oil and gas field pipeline; Failure mode; Diagnostic method.


 In recent years, the service safety evaluation of oil and gas pipelines in the whole life cycle has attracted the attention of many researchers. This paper summarizes the failure modes of oil and gas pipelines and focuses on four machine learning-based oil and gas pipeline failure mode diagnosis methods: fault tree analysis method, failure expert system evaluation method, the fuzzy comprehensive evaluation method of pipeline failure, failure mode, and impact analysis method, and prospects the development of oil and gas pipeline failure mode diagnosis technology, in order to provide a reference for subsequent research.
