Pipeline Construction & Maintenance Planning & Management Best Practices



Pipeline systems for the oil and gas industry play an important role in modern industrial operations. The purpose of this training course is to present the basic characteristics of efficient operation of pipelines in various engineering applications. This training course will cover the interaction of pipelines with flow moving equipment, i.e. pumps and compressors, and technical characteristics of operation of pump and compressor stations. The delegates will be introduced to the main points of inspection and testing according to relevant API standards. They will also develop familiarity with methods of cleaning and other maintenance activities, including necessary repairs as prevention of failures. The program will include several workshops with real problems from industrial practice which will enable discussions and exchange of experiences.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course, the participants will be able to:

  • Identify basic principles of safe operation & efficient maintenance of pipelines for various industrial applications
