Gas pipeline Design and Analysis

This short course is designed to provide theoretical understanding of gas transportation through pipelines, linked to practical engineering principles, guidelines, codes, and standards using the concept of Natural Gas pipeline design as means of gas transportation. The course covers aspects of Conceptual Engineering, through Design, as well as Construction stages. It provides the basic underpinning engineering knowledge of theories, equations and models through to practical applications using case studies of several pipelines from real life experience at each stage of the training, as well as including software modelling and simulation for the specific stage of design. This unique combination of theory and software modelling helps Engineers to bridge their theoretical and practical understanding of the design of gas pipelines.

The target of this course is to enable participants to:

  • understand the relevance of gas pipelines as a means of gas transportation
  • compare options of pipelines and LNG in gas transportation
  • understand the flow regimes in gas pipelines
  • identify pipeline route and area classifications
  • identify compressor stations requirements along gas pipelines
  • understand pipeline expansion options and limitations

This training course uses both conventional and non-traditional techniques. It utilises small group and facilitated plenary discussions as well as instruction to explore key concepts, models, tools and techniques. Hands-on exercises and case studies are used to practice the application of knowledge and use of skills. Structured reviews provide the opportunity to consider how the learning can be applied to the delegates’ own work.
