Why Choose this Training Course?

Pipelines are a major asset in most Oil & Gas operators’ projects. Ensuring pipeline functionality and effectiveness is a paramount operation and business requirement.

Many problems occur during the operation of pipelines. Monitoring the health of pipelines during operation is very important to maintain the required pipeline lifetime. New technologies have been developed to monitor the pipeline health as part of pipeline integrity management. A sound monitoring system will help pipeline operators to improve their maintenance programs.

This Pipeline Technology training course will highlight:

  • The main Pipeline Operation and Maintenance Problems
  • Pipeline Inspection and Testing Technology
  • Technologies used to monitor the pipeline health
  • Case Studies illustrating different Pipeline Inspection and Monitoring Methodologies
  • Integrity and Maintenance of Pipelines

What are the Goals?

This PetroKnowledge training course will help participants understand the main problems that occur during pipelines operation and different technologies used to monitor the health & threats of oil and gas pipelines. The participants will understand how these technologies will affect the maintenance program.

By the end of this Pipeline Technology training course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the main problems during pipeline operation
  • Appreciate different techniques for pipeline inspection and technology
