Cross Country pipeline construction
pipelines are used all over the world for cross country transport of natural gas, crude oil, water, petrochemical and petroleum products at high pressures over long distances.
The Pipeline Engineering Principles Program represents the integration of all the skills associated with planning, evaluation, design, construction, operation and asset integrity through asset retirement and abandonment, applied to onshore and offshore pipelines.
The aim of the training is to facilitate to a high level of awareness, knowledge and understanding of health, safety and environmental issues relating to the construction of cross country pipelines.
The Program covers typical pipeline life cycle activities, starting with the definition of the need for the pipeline, sizing parameters, route selection, environmental concerns and protection, followed by design requirements, strength requirements, construction activities through commissioning. The Program then covers the operating life of the pipeline, including maintenance and leak detection, monitoring and integrity, repair, replacement and alteration activities, leading to retirement and abandonment.
