Why Choose this Training Course?

Why choose this online training course?

Compared with other forms of transport, pipelines allow a more continuous, stable, and high-capacity supply of hydrocarbons to reach end-users. Pipeline transportation has the advantages of being well established, efficient, cost-effective, and readily expandable.

The products carried in liquid pipelines include a wide range of materials. Process fluid systems gather production from onshore and offshore fields, while transmission lines transport them to terminals, interconnection points, and refineries.

This Pipe Stress Analysis course will combine the various disciplines of pipe stress analysis, including design, structural integrity, modes of failure, inspection, none destructive testing, etc., as well as the applications of relevant codes such as ASME B31.3 and API 570.

The delegates will be introduced to main points of inspection and testing according to relevant ASME and API standards.

The PetroKnowledge course will include several workshops with real problems from industrial practice which will enable discussions and exchange of experiences

This Pipe Stress Analysis training course will highlight: 

  • Main aspects of pipeline design and manufacturing considerations
  • Knowledge of the governing principles of structural integrity and remaining life
  • Main types of pipe failure including fracture, fatigue, high temperature and corrosion
  • Introduction to relevant ASME and API codes
  • Relevant pipe inspection and non-destructive testing
