|Gas Conditioning and Processing - G-4|
|Corrosion Management in Production/Processing Operations - PF-22|
|Onshore Gas Gathering Systems: Design and Operations - PF-45|
|Flow Assurance for Pipeline Systems - PL-61|
Discipline: Pipeline Engineering
Duration: 5 days
Instructor(s): Andrea Mangiavacchi
|This course will provide an understanding of flow phenomena that can help the participant avoid problems such as hydrate formation, pressure (surge) waves, or high viscosity liquid flow failure. This intensive, five-day intermediate level course addresses several critical problems in achieving pipeline flow assurance. The focus of this course is on potential challenges to pipeline operations including: surge, corrosion, hydrate formation, wax deposition, multiphase fluids, and slugging. The causes for these problems, design solutions, and operational responses will be an integral part of the course.|
Technical professionals engaged in pipeline flow assurance offshore and onshore including: project managers, pipeline engineers, facilities engineers, design engineers, and engineering contractors.
You Will Learn:
DR. ANDREA MANGIAVACCHI is currently involved in international deep-water offshore projects on behalf of major oil and gas operators. He is also an active member of work groups involved in the development of US and international standards for offshore structures. After an early academic career with the University of Rome, Italy and with Rice University in Houston, Andrea joined Brown & Root (today KBR), where over the next 25 years he was involved in a number of major international offshore oil and gas projects (Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, South America, West Africa, Asia-Pacific). He also held a number of corporate positions in the area of deep water technology, fixed and floating offshore structures, and engineering systems. Andrea has extensive experience in conceptual field development projects, structural analysis and design, hydrodynamics, naval architecture, Computer Aided Engineering and Design. Andrea holds a MSc in Nuclear Engineering and a PhD in Aerospace Engineering, both from the University of Rome. He has authored or co-authored over 30 technical papers, and holds two patents.
