The huge nightmare defying Africa’s economy known as pipeline vandalism had obviously rendered all forms of protection innovations abortive because these innovations were strictly centered on a lone and narrow method of “sensor this; sensor that” type of protection design. Although prevalent in rural communities, it is clear that the perpetrators of this crime are no novice to plugging out the sensor based detection/protection systems’ eye/ear before they carry out any operation; therefore, it becomes needful for the introduction of a thoughtful and appropriate method of protection that will ensure a global permanent solution to this atrocious nightmare. Consequently, this paper proposes the utilization of the internet in pipeline protection against vandalism; it also demonstrates the utilization of the Internet in the protection of pipelines taking into cognizance an accurate measure and comparison of the physical quantities around the conveyed fluid.
