Pipeline Design & Fabrication




Seminar Introduction:


Pipeline design has become and fabrication has become an important safety aspect throughout recent years as there have been numerous incidents involving pipeline breaks and spillages.


This seminar is designed to give the participants the knowledge and skills to consider design effects and the fabrication techniques to ensure pressurization and anti corrosion is effective.


Seminar Objectives:


The seminar will include the following specific objectives to give the participants:


  • Understanding of the physical phenomena which affect the design of

      piping systems determing & evaluating stresses.

  • Methods of fabricating, inspecting and testing piping systems.
  • Additional requirements needed in fabrication/ installation specification to ensure adequate & proper installation
  • Understanding piping issues as they relate to production facilities
  • A technical appreciation of the operations relating to piping and pipelines
