Activities within the oil and gas industry can be divided into three large areas: exploration, production and commercialisation. All three sectors involve the ever-more demanding transportation of oil, gas and other related products. This online course examines the engineering, construction and operations of one of the key elements used in this transportation process: pipelines.
The primary objective of this popular course is to provide the participant with a multidisciplinary understanding of the design, materials, construction, integrity, operation and maintenance of this important onshore and offshore infrastructure.
This module provides a brief history of the pipeline and technical background to the design of pipelines used in the transport of oil and gas.
The objective of this module is to provide an overview of the material selection process for pipeline fabrication, as well as the method for controlling pipeline corrosion during the pipeline lifecycle.
This module introduces the participant to the design of onshore and offshore pipelines, the different stages of pipeline construction and the pipeline installation methods..
The aim of this module is to provide the participant with the flow/hydraulic principles associated with pipelines.
This module provides a description of defects in pipelines, including pipe manufacturing defects and in-service defects, how they affect pipeline integrity, and how it can be technically assessed.
The objective of this module is to give the participant a review of pipeline integrity assessment, with emphasis on the inspection technologies that are available to detect the defects and anomalies found in pipelines, and monitor the condition of the pipeline.
