dc.description.abstract Following the discovery of oil in Ghana the upstream industry of the Oil and Gas has received a jumpstart and is augmenting the older and more established midstream and downstream industry. The midstream and downstream industries involve the processes that refine, transport, and distribute oil and other crude products and as economic activities increase there is an urgent need to vamp up production, and this can be done by increasing the efficiency of storage processes. This paper explores in detail the design and creation of an IoT system tailored to the needs of the Ghanaian oil and gas industry with a focus on the midstream and downstream storage section. This paper delves deep into the underlying technology, mathematical models, communication protocols, storage architecture, and hardware components needed to realize an IoT system capable of significantly impacting the landscape of the storage of crude oil and other crude products. The paper concludes with an account of limitations and how they can be used to develop future works and improve the current concept. en_US
