Pipeline design & construction : a practical approach by M. Mohitpour, H. Golshan, A. Murray

By M. Mohitpour, H. Golshan, A. Murray

This 3rd variation of this hugely winning quantity is totally up-to-date and comprises new info on buoyancy keep watch over, Trenchless Crossing equipment, in addition to on Compressor gasoline Calculations and Optimization, Hydrotesting and LPG Pipelining. This publication deals common, useful thoughts for pipeline layout and development, making it an amazing expert reference, education software, or entire textual content. The authors current many of the components that make up a single-phase liquid and fuel pipeline process, together with tips to layout, build, fee, and check pipelines and similar amenities. They talk about fuel and liquid transmission, compression, pumps, safety and integrity, procurement prone, and the administration of pipeline initiatives. extra complicated forte fluids also are lined, together with CO2, H2, slurry and multi-products

As-building is the process of transferring the actual ‘‘as-constructed’’ information on to drawings for future reference. The objective is to provide an accurate record of the completed work. The process involves surveying and documenting the entire system, including, but not limited to, the following: p p p p Changes in pipe specifications Actual pipe profiles at crossings The location, spacing and number of buoyancy control devices Each mainline weld. The pipe joint and heat numbers are recorded at and for each weld.

Field Reconnaissance An aerial survey/ground inspection is made to identify problem areas along each route and to evaluate key factors affecting it.

The design must consider the potential for damage to the pipeline due to flood plains and the need for dredging of water crossings, scouring, or channel shifting in order to determine the correct pipeline design and installation technique. The design may need to consider the determination of pipe depth, buoyancy control, pipeline installation, and construction methodology in areas of hydrological concern. Usually facilities are designed such that they will not sustain any unanticipated damage from a 1:100 year flood, and will fully and continually operate under 1:50 year flood conditions.
