Piping Systems - Mechanical Design and Specification - ME-41


About the Course

This intermediate level 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.

"Instructor very knowledgeable and helpful. Great stories and great emphasis on safety. Great course material (it's good that a book is supplied in addition to the slides for more details)." - Participant, Egypt

"I enjoyed this course and learned a ton. Very impressed with quality of instructor and his scope of knowledge." - Leak Detection Engineer, United States

Target Audience

This PetroSkills training course is ideal for 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.
