Why Attend This Training Course?
This course introduces you to all the techniques and methods in the execution of the design of any piping systems. You will be provided  with a sound theoretical background and practical skills in some of the hydraulic, mechanical and electrical design aspects related to the design of pipeline systems. With the latest updates on the practical aspects of pipeline design and operations, the course specifically focuses on issues of pipeline engineering, the optimization process of pipeline systems. You will also be introduced to other related topics, including pipeline hydraulics, surge analysis, pipeline component design and installation, lifecycle costing, testing and operation of pipeline systems.

What Is The Training Course Methodology?
This training methodology illustrates the concepts involved in the above areas through practical consideration of actual real-life problems, as well as explanation of concepts by experts in area using video projectors and computer aided case studies based on practical applications. Participants will solve their system problem, where the trainee’s try to apply the skills learnt with guidance from our specialized experts. ACAD will provide participants a comprehensive assessment on the problems solved using the skills acquired in the training course.

Who Should Attend This Training Course?
This comprehensive training course is designed for Senior Engineers, Supervisors and Senior Foremen involved in the design, material selection, operation, inspection and maintenance of pipelines in oil and related industries, power plants, civil and agricultural engineering applications.

What Are The Training Course Objectives?
This course aims at providing participants with solid technical background on the design criteria and standards for pipelines; it also enables them to select the best pipe material, fittings, supports and equipment connected with the duty of the line to guarantee safe and economic operation.
