Wireless sensor networks is a field of research which is vastly spreading because of the advancement of new technologies in relatively cheap sensors. These electronic devices have been recently improved with respect to their memory size, communication networking capabilities and their processing speed. In the last few years, a new subcategory of sensor networks known as linear wireless sensor networks (LWSN) is rising as a great focus area of research. Such wireless sensor networks have a large number of applications such as border monitoring, railway track monitoring, structural health monitoring of bridges, health care and machines surveillance. This paper focus on the use of this new technology in the monitoring and protection of the essential and critical pipelines infrastructures carrying water, oil, gas and other vital resources. The paper introduces a linear wireless sensor network model that can be used to facilitate this control and monitoring functions. Besides the paper investigated a suitable model of LWSNs nodes energy consumption
