Pipeline Facilities (Gas) User Guide
Study time: 2 hours
The Pipeline Toolbox is home to many tools and calculators. The PLTB User’s Guide presents information, guidelines and procedures for use during design, and construction tasks for field or office applications. In today’s competitive and changing environment, it is crucial that pipelines and associated facilities create and sustain value for their stakeholders. This value can only be achieved by incorporating dependability into the pipeline system, in whole or in part. Dependability characteristics address not just availability and reliability as the probability of successful performance, but also identify other potential risk exposures such as degradation and wear out that advocate the need for maintenance and logistic support to sustain “problem free” pipeline and facility operation. The following module contains a few calculations that can address some areas and tasks conducted on facilities to ensure greater levels of safety and operation.
