Why Choose this Training Course?
Pipelines, given the tremendous quantity of transported products, are among the safest mode of commodity transport. However, unplanned commodity loss, due to breaches in pipeline integrity, does occur and is a very undesirable side effect of transporting oil and gas by pipeline.
This Pipeline Leak Detection training course mainly focuses on leak detection technology, so that operators can detect when pipeline failures occur so that these operators can respond in a timely manner. It also focuses on pipelines used by the petroleum industry. However, many aspects of this course are applicable to other pipeline infrastructures.
This PetroKnowledge Pipeline Leak Detection training course will highlight:
Threats to pipelines that may cause leaks.
Pipeline leak detection methods.
Pipeline leak detection installation and testing.
Risk Based Integrity Management with links to pipeline leak.
Case studies and some special cases.
What are the Goals?
This Pipeline Leak Detection training course will help participants understand the main problems that causing pipeline leaks and different technologies used to detect these leaks in whether for oil pipelines or gas pipelines. Participants on this course will understand how these technologies are implemented.
By the end of this Pipeline Leak Detection training course, delegates will be able to:
Understand the main problems causing pipeline leaks.
Appreciate different techniques for pipeline leak detection.
Learn about some special cases and case studies of pipeline leak detection.
Understand the pipeline risk management and how to link this with pipeline leak.
Appreciate how to improve the monitoring systems of oil and gas pipelines.
Who is this Training Course for?
This Pipeline Leak Detection training course is suitable for a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:

How will this Training Course be Presented?
This Pipeline Leak Detection training course will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented including:
Competency assurance tests including pre-assessment and post-assessment tests
The Pipeline Leak Detection training course will be highly interactive and participative. This involves regular discussion of applications as well as hands-on exposure to techniques using examples from case studies and real projects. Delegates are strongly encouraged to bring and share their own experiences and lessons learnt from the work domain. This adds greater relevancy to the content.
This Pipeline Leak Detection training course will effectively impact the organization by understanding the different technologies of monitoring pipeline leakage and how to reduce the risks of leakage and improve the pipeline integrity. The course will further consolidate the following:
Main problems that may affect pipelines and cause leakage
Different technologies used to detect leaks in oil and gas pipelines
Main pipeline leak detection installation and testing aspects
Overcoming difficulties in pipeline leak detection
Case studies illustrating some special conditions
Upon successful completion of this training course, participants will be able to comprehend and effectively manage the risks of pipeline leaks during the development operation of pipeline projects within their organizations.
The training course is very comprehensive and will address the technologies and techniques used to detect pipeline leakage so that participants of any engineering discipline will have a rounded knowledge about oil and gas pipeline risk, especially leakage.
