Pipeline network systems are considered the major option for transporting petroleum derivatives from refineries to local markets, in view of their many economic and environmental advantages. This article deals with a large real-world pipeline system planning and scheduling problem, in which different products should be transported in a pipeline network in order to supply market demands, while also satisfying hard operational constraints related to product sequencing, flow rates and tank… CONTINUE READING
