TUITION: $4,090 USD

DESIGNED FOR: This PetroSkills training course is ideal for mechanical, facilities, plant, or pipeline engineers and piping system designers who are involved in the design of in-plant piping systems for oil and gas facilities.

ABOUT THIS COURSE: This 5-day, intermediate level course for engineers and piping system designers reviews the key areas associated with the design of piping systems for oil and gas facilities. The course is focused on four areas: codes and standards, pipe materials and manufacture, piping components, and piping layout and design. Applicable piping codes for oil and gas facilities (ISO, B31.3, B31.4, B31.8, etc.), pipe sizing calculations, pipe installation, and materials selection are an integral part of the course. The emphasis is on proper material selection and specification of piping systems.

The program uses self-paced online modules to cover the basic subject matter. These modules are coupled with virtual instructor-led lectures and workshops to cover the practical application of sound facilities engineering methods and analysis. Our online discussions will include practical rules of thumb, troubleshooting and equipment/process analysis.
