Oil and Gas Pipelines and Piping Systems

File Size: 5.03 Mb

In designing the pipeline and its associated piping systems, due account should be given to the operation, inspection, and maintenance requirements for the predicted life cycle and the planned conditions and criteria for the operation and maintenance of the pipeline. Due regard should also be given to manning levels, pipeline condition monitoring, and maintenance system, remote operations, communications, means of access to the right-of-way, bypass requirements for components needing regular maintenance without interruption of the pipeline operation, etc.

Moreover, the materials engineer shall establish the preferred materials selection based on the process requirements such as medium, pressure, temperature, flow, and the environment of the process facility. Design life and cost considerations shall also be taken into account in this respect.

This book covers essential requirements for all aspects to be considered in design of piping for oil, gas, and petrochemical plants to be designed, which includes, but is not limited to, the following:

1. Loading and unloading terminals.
2. Crude oil and gas gathering central facilities.
3. Process units.
4. Package equipment.
5. Pump house and compressor stations (booster stations).
6. Tank farms and oil/gas depots.

This book outlines requirements for the procedure in handing over, loading, hauling, unloading, keeping an inventory list, and the storing of materials required for installation of pipelines.
