Fundamentals of Pipeline Engineering, Construction and Operations

Develop your professional knowledge of pipeline engineering - training course by tutored distance learning

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.
