Pipeline Engineering is a comprehensive system project with huge investment, high complexity, strong technical and strict security requirements. The conventional construction and management mode for pipeline project has encountered a variety of bottlenecks in the development, and digital informatization of pipeline is the inevitable trend for the future pipeline industry development. Therefore, combining with the existing technical achievements, this paper puts forward and defines a new concept- “Pipeline Information Modeling (PIM)”, which can use digital model for the whole life-cycle of pipeline management. Its characteristics and architecture are expounded, and the relationship and difference are summarized between PIM and other related theories such as BIM, pipeline integrity management, and digital pipeline. Meanwhile, a case study of several applications in long-distance oil & gas transmission pipeline engineering is analyzed. Finally, the challenges PIM will face in the future development are discussed. PIM is still in its infancy, and theoretical system and technical method still need to be constantly perfected. But its emergence has important significance for improving pipeline engineering scientific and technological level and accelerating transformation of industry informatization, which will have great application foreground.
