Fundamentals of Pipeline Engineering, Construction & Operations
Course Description
This intensive foundation level course covers the design, construction, and operation of onshore pipeline systems. This course will incorporate construction methods, commissioning, pressure test, and start up into the design of a pipeline system. The course focuses on pipeline routing, mechanical design, construction methods, hydraulics, installation, and operations of onshore pipeline systems. Participants will acquire and consolidate the essential knowledge and skills to design, construct, and operate pipelines. This course provides participants with a multidisciplinary understanding of the design, materials, construction, integrity, operation and maintenance of this important onshore and offshore infrastructure.
