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 online 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 online 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 online 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 online 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.
