The level of automatic and digital management in domestic gas pipelines in serve is low generally. The digital pipeline technology can largely improve pipeline management efficiency. The digital pipeline technology is introduced to gas pipelines in serve by describing the concept and the content of digital pipeline. It is pointed out that by application of digital pipeline technology in gas pipelines in serve, a pipeline management system is constructed, including management information system, SCADA system and emulation system whose function consists of auto control, emulation and stimulation and information management and the structure and the function of each system are introduced. Discussed is key technology needed in system and proved is feasibility of the digital pipeline technology applied in gas pipelines in serve. It is pointed out that the digital pipeline technology has great application foreground in domestic pipelines in serve.
