Pipeline Engineering Modules

  • Pipeline O&M, Leak Detection, Repairs, Alterations and Abandonment
  • Pipeline Routing and Geomatics

DURATION: approximately 4 hours

 

FEE: $395

 

In this skill module, you will learn the key aspects of  daily operations and maintenance of pipeline systems. You will recognize the reasons for monitoring pipelines, how to detect leaks, and common systems that are used for leak detection. Also covered in this module, key actions and components of pipeline emergency response programs, and primary methods to debottleneck a pipeline system. You will learn about the code requirements for asset integrity management, primary onshore and offshore pipeline repair methods, and the general principles behind SIMOPS procedures. Lastly, you will learn about the issues that must be addressed when reactivating an idled pipeline and the requirements to correctly abandon a pipeline.

 

DESIGNED FOR Engineers or Facilities Engineers involved in design, operation, maintenance or construction of pipelines or pipeline facilities.

 

YOU WILL LEARN TO:

  • Describe the risks and consequences of pipeline incidents by type of service and location
  • Define High Consequence Area (HCA) and list the impacts on pipeline design and operation
  • List the primary pipeline defects and the required repair methods for each
  • List the specialized materials, supplies, and equipment that may be required for emergency repairs
  • Explain the variety of definitions for decommissioning, idling, and abandoning pipeline facilities

In this skill module, you will be exposed to the basic terminology, concepts and methods associated with defining a specific location on earth as part of the description of a pipeline route/alignment. This includes basic requirements for surveying, use of advanced techniques like global positioning systems (GPS), remote sensing imagery, and techniques for subsea surveying (bathymetry) applicable for offshore pipelines. The module further covers key considerations for pipeline route selection and exclusion zones, as well as the impact population density may have on the design of a pipeline.

 

 

DESIGNED FOR Engineers or Facilities Engineers involved in design, operation, maintenance or construction of pipelines or pipeline facilities.

 

 

YOU WILL LEARN TO:

  • Define monument, benchmark, longitude and latitude
  • Define basic requirements of surveying and describe how points on the earth are uniquely defined relative to the rest of the world
  • Define how global positioning systems (GPS) and remotely sensed imagery have modernized surveying techniques over the last 20 years
  • Describe methods and inherent difficulties for subsea surveying
  • Describe the basic surveys required for pipeline design, construction, and operations
  • Describe the impact of geographic information systems (GIS) on pipeline surveys, drawings, and maps
  • Describe the functionality of Web / internet resources (such as Earth/Map) for the pipeline engineer and operator
  • Describe the critical issues in routing a pipeline
  • Compile a list of critical route selection criteria, and identify potential “fatal flaw” situations, including public safety aspects of pipeline construction, operations, and maintenance; and environmental considerations of pipeline construction, operations and maintenance
  • Describe the role GIS plays incurred pipeline route selection and how Web / internet resources can assist
  • Describe advantages/disadvantages of using existing corridors
  • Define the why population/occupied building density must be consider in pipeline routing
