According to the distance between the two refineries on the same side of the railway and their distance from the railway, this paper gives out the design of the lest cost on laying pipelines, considering the cost of shared pipeline and non-shared ones is same or not. Considering the different cost of laying pipelines between urban and suburban, we establish a more realistic model and a multi-objective optimization model.
