Plastic Pipes (Liquid) 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, construction, operations and integrity tasks for field or office applications. Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) has emerged as a preferred crossing method in many situations for the installation of oil and gas pipelines as well as other utilities under watercourses, roads, rail lines, steep slopes and other obstacles. This technology has been enthusiastically embraced by proponents, contractors and regulators as a potentially low impact construction technique. The purpose of this document is to assist pipeline companies, contractors and regulators in the planning, evaluation and construction of HDD crossings.
