Piping, as used in the industry refers to the system of pipes which is used for conveying fluids from a source to a sink. This fluid which is conveyed through the pipe can be both liquid and gas. Piping design relates to the efficient and effective transport of such fluids between two locations. In industrial processes, pipes can be manufactured by a variety of materials depending on the requirements and end results. Several in-line components are also involved in piping design and construction such as fittings, valves, sensors for temperature control, flow rate control, pressure control, etc. Piping design relates to the detailed specification of the physical piping layout in process plants or commercial buildings. A number of industrial applications involve piping design for transporting semi processed fluids and refinement of such fluids into useful products. Piping design in all such cases can be categorized into three major subfields of study, mainly piping material, piping design and stress analysis. A number of standards are also involved which need to be taken into consideration when designing and manufacturing of piping systems is to take place.

Course Details

This pipeline design online training course focuses on piping design of oil and petroleum transport apart from providing the fundamentals of piping design pertaining to all kinds of fluids. The trainees will gain an in-depth understanding of the essential elements of design, operation and maintenance of pipelines. The various aspects of designing in gathering network, pressure dropping, patterns of fluids, network arrangement and more are explained in detail through this piping design online training program. The entire course is structured to provide a pragmatic approach to understanding the design procedures while taking into consideration various factors such as legislation, material selection, corrosion, management etc. Through this course the various advanced topics of practical piping design will also be covered such as hydrotesting, pigging, pipeline integrity analysis with inspection survey, data monitoring, risk analysis and much more. There are no prerequisites for this course but, a basic knowledge of oil and gas production systems, flow of fluids and API 5L standards will be an added advantage to successfully complete this course.
