IGEM technical training course
About The Event
High pressure pipelines for gas transmission

Course outline

This 2 day course will focus on the principles for design, build, commissioning, maintenance and operational requirements laid out in IGEM/TD/1 - steel pipelines and associated installations for high pressure gas transmission and the risk models adopted in IGEM/TD/2 Edition 2 - assessing the risks from high pressure natural gas pipelines. The course will be made up of a combination of  presentations and practical  / group discussions and activities.

Key outcomes/objectives

To ensure all participants:
•Leave with an overview understanding of pipeline best practice based on TD/1
•Appreciate how TD/1 affects every role within the gas transmission lifecycle
•Can apply the basic principles identified in TD/1
•Can apply the risk assessment methodology to pipelines designed / constructed and maintained in accordance with TD/1 and TD/2
•Can identify mitigation measures to reduce risk
•Can identify preventative and corrective measures associated with pipeline failures
•Will be able to attend more specific TD/1 courses applicable to their particular role and sector

Course content

Day 1 - TD/1 overview
•Management systems for pipelines and associated equipment
•Planning and legal considerations
•Materials for pipelines and associated installations
•Handling, transport and storage of steel pipe (SUP1)
•Design of pipelines
•Proximity awareness and classification
•Construction of pipelines
•Testing of pipelines and associated installations
•Commissioning of pipelines and associated equipment
•Protection against corrosion
•Operations and maintenance

Day 2 - TD/2 overview and TD/1 - practical application
•Risk assessment models
•Failure of hazardous gas pipelines - consequences and assessment and predictions
•Calculation of individual risk and societal risk
•IGEM/TD/1 designing out the risk, risk mitigation during construction and operation
•Risk assessing attendees' infrastructure (attendees will be asked to bring with them an example of their own asset infrastructure in the form of  a strip map)

Who should attend?

The course should be attended by anyone currently working within the gas industry who wishes to have an understanding of the controls placed within the high pressure gas transmission system at all phases of design, operation and construction.  The courses is suited to engineers, operators and constructors, providing an overview of how their roles impact on other stakeholders
