This MasterClass provides a comprehensive overview of the varied activities that are involved in designing and constructing onshore pipeline infrastructure to transport hydrocarbons in a cost effective manner.  The material is presented in a logical sequence of five blocks covering facilities planning, hydraulic design, mechanical/geotechnical design, materials selection and construction.  Practical examples are used throughout and the lectures are supplemented by video presentations.  This course is a great source of reference for any engineer working in the onshore pipeline industry.

You Will Learn To
 - Evaluate pipeline hydraulic design, pipe size selection for strength and capacity employing the industry accepted methods, such as the Colebrook and Hazen-Williams equations
 - Explain selection of pump station locations and the power requirements
 - Describe how multi-product pipelines are designed and operated considering batching and DRA
 - Describe how the existing pipeline capacity can be expanded by installing additional pump stations and/or using pipe loops
 - Evaluate economic analysis of pipe expansion considering pipe loops and other methods
