Course description

This course for engineers and piping system designers reviews the key areas associated with the design of piping systems for oil and gas facilities. The course is focused on four areas: codes and standards, pipe materials and manufacture, piping components, and piping layout and design. Applicable piping codes for oil and gas facilities (ISO, B31.3, B31.4, B31.8, etc.), pipe sizing calculations, pipe installation, and materials selection are an integral part of the course. The emphasis is on proper material selection and specification of piping systems. 


Mechanical, facilities, plant or pipeline engineers and piping system designers who are involved in the design of in-plant piping systems for oil and gas facilities.
