Introduction to Gas Pipeline Engineering (ID 288) is an essential introductory course that provides an overview of pipeline engineering. This course includes an overview of petroleum geology, reservoir and well equipment, extracting and processing, pipeline facilities, hydrocarbon properties, AS2885, statutory requirements overview, pipeline components, gas analysis, SCADA and control systems, process and instrumentation diagrams, pigging, corrosion control, gas compression and flow measurements.
After successfully completing the course, students should be able to:
- Explain the principles of petroleum geology, extraction and processing
- Describe the functions of typical components on gas pipeline facilities
- Describe the properties of hydrocarbons and basics of hydrocarbons processing
- Explain the principles of operation of typical pipeline instruments, monitoring and control systems (incl. SCADA)
- Explain the principles of operation of gas analysis systems including moisture analysers, gas chromatographs, densitometers, calorimeters
- Explain the principles of pigging
- Explain the principles of gas compression
- Explain the principles of rotating equipment, lubrication and bearings
- Explain the principles of corrosion control
- Explain the principles of gas measurement
- Interpret process and instrumentation diagrams for a facility
