 Day and Time                                      Description

Day 1 - 5:00 PM    Design a new pipeline to connect two facilities with a given design
 until 7:00 PM     pressure, flow rate and product type. This should also include a design of
                   precommissioning integrity checks and tests.
Day 2 - 5:00 PM    Design a program to assess a pipeline for a specific threat and determine
 until 7:00 PM     how to mitigate and remediate the threat.

Day 1 - 8:30 AM
                   Introduce the instructors and a high-level overview of the course contents.
 until 9:00 AM

Day 1 - 9:00 AM    Review of industry standards for proper design to assure the integrity of
until 10:30 AM     the pipeline during operation.

Day 1 - 10:30 AM
                   Overview of key elements of routing an onshore pipeline.
 until 12:00 PM
Day 1 - 12:00 PM   Identification of methods for determining the allowable stress in a pipeline
 until 2:00 PM     as well as how defects may affect the allowable stress.
Day 1 - 2:00 PM    Review of construction related issues that focus on maintaining the long
 until 4:00 PM     term integrity of the pipeline.
Day 1 - 4:00 PM    Design and test procedure considerations for pipeline pressure tests for
 until 5:00 PM     both new construction and existing operating pressure certification.
                   Review historical industry failures where the cause was integrity related.
Day 2 - 9:00 AM
                   Document what led to the failure as well as what can be done to prevent a
until 10:30 AM
                   similar future incident.
Day 2 - 10:30 AM Outline techniques for assessing the integrity of a pipeline, including direct
 until 12:00 PM assessment, indirect assessment and other techniques.
Day 2 - 1:00 PM    Overview of in the methods for assessing and repairing features
 until 3:00 PM     discovered on the pipeline.

                   This section of the course will review methods for hazard/threat
                   identification and provide methods for prioritizing investigation based on
Day 2 - 3:00 PM
                   likelihood and consequence analysis. It will define the process for
 until 4:00 PM
                   removing and correcting issues that are identified to have caused a threat
                   to the pipeline.

Day 2 - 4:00 PM
                   Understanding pipeline failures, and their root causes. Case studies of well-known failures will be presented.
 until 5:00 PM
