what is pipeline definition?

understanding a pipeline A pipeline is a structure designed to transport liquid, gaseous, and solid (bulk) products. Pipelines consist of straight sections of pipes tightly interconnected, parts, shut-off and control valves, instrumentation, automation, supports and suspensions, fasteners, gaskets and seals, as well as materials used for thermal and anti-corrosion insulation. Pipeline parts are the connecting parts that are used in the construction of pipelines for various purposes, necessary for bending, bending, bending, changing the diameter of the pipes and in the case when the pipeline is temporarily not used. Parts are connected when installing the pipeline, as a rule, butt[…]

ultrasonic pipeline inspection by pigging

pig cleaning system

what is pig cleaning system? each oil and gas company is required to carry out pipeline inspection activities. Inspection methods that are often used vary according to company requirements. starting from UT conventional, LRUT, MTM, visual inspection to the most sophisticated method, namely ILI or often called pigging. based on my 15 years of experience in the inspection field, this pigging method is the most perfect inspection method with a relatively cheap price compared to the LRUT method. This pigging inspection process is carried out by inserting pig in the pipe without interrupting the pipe operation or stopping the flow[…]

guided wave ultrasonic testing for pipeline inspection in oil and gas industry

Why choose guided wave ultrasonic testing pipeline inspection? LRUT (Long range ultrasonic testing) or sometimes called as GWT (guided wave testing) is becoming commonplace today for ultrasonic pipeline inspection. This technology is used as excellent NDT for the screening tool. Guided wave ultrasonic pipeline inspection offer many advantages such as High productivity (km per day), access required only at discrete locations, carried out with pipe on-line ( not require shutdown) and 100% coverage except for flanges, tees and other large features. This LRUT/GWT technology come as a solution for pipeline inspection problem like restricted access, many lines not suitable for[…]

Fluid mechanic application in oil and gas industry

What is fluid mechanic? In the oil and gas industry, we are dealing with fluid mechanic problems every day. What is fluid? What is the nature and character of the fluid? To solve this problem we need to understand fluid mechanic basic. Mechanics is physics that deals with stationary objects and moves in the influence of forces. 1) Branches of mechanics that deal with stationary objects are called statics, and 2) The branch of mechanics that deals with moving objects are called dynamics Fluid mechanics is the science that deals with the nature of the fluid in a state of[…]
