I assume that it carries only one type of "fuel." Is this a gas pipeline?
The article says it's for gasoline, diesel and jet fuel (kerosene I suppose?)

Electrical infrastructure is possibly more susceptible than gasoline..... we be next!
Natural gas should be fine, it's transported more by pipes than trucks I believe. Coal is usually trains. I think automobile gas, diesel, etc. is probably what is transported more by trucks for the "last mile" delivery part.

A "pig" is inserted between different types of fuel. The pig seals between the different types, and is carried through the pipeline. Pigs are also used to internal inspection, cleaning and such.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

This sounds like fear mongering and needless worry over useless software. Don't pay any ransom.

My uncle lived and worked at a pipeline station (a 24/7 job life) and you could hear a loud rumbling when the pigs came thru. He had to open and close valves as necessary to extract the various fuels at the times after a pig came thru. All they had and needed was a telephone to share the timing for the various fuel pigs.

A man has to open the hatch and load in the pigs; a man has to open the valves and send the load; no software can do those tasks. Software may have replaced the telephone but it's not gonna shutdown the pipeline.

Regardless of what we think, it has been shutdown. The software must do something vital?

It's crazy how vulnerable the energy infrastructure really appears to be. imagine if we were engaged in an actual war and it's not just some random hackers testing to see how vulnerable it is (assuming that's what happened over the weekend, but I don't know).

It might be hard to tell from the picture, but all of those cars were fighting to get the last drop of the most expensive "premium" gas at that station, since they had run out of regular and plus.
In case you didn't know any gas station built or remodeled in the last xx decades only have two underground fuel storage tanks. One for regular & one for premium. Plus/MidGrade gas is merely blended at the actual pump you are using & if either tank runs dry then Plus/MidGrade is no longer available

I had no idea, nice info. Explains why the regular/plus runs out so quickly!

The panic has started already, gas prices have gone up 38 cents in the past 24 hours and people are doing things like this... :roll:
