Incorporating Evaluation, Rehabilitation & Repair of Pipelines
Performing Pipeline Rehabilitation
This course is centered on the practical aspects of pipeline rehabilitation and covers both internal and external rehabilitation. The course goes into depth on how to safely rehabilitate operating pipelines using manual and automated equipment. Movement of in-service pipelines is analyzed in detail including the application and methodology of recommended practice API 1117. Other industry standards applicable to pipeline rehabilitation are discussed as well as how they should be incorporated into project specifications. Approximately half of the course is spent in analyzing case studies of field rehabilitation projects from around the world. Over 400 photographs are used to illustrate how the work was performed and the results obtained. The course presents techniques for performing the work with a combination of in-house personnel and outside contractors to minimize costs while maintaining clear lines of responsibility.
