Course Overview

The oil and gas industry serves to provide energy on a global scale. The complexities involved in the production, processing and delivery of oil and gas (hydrocarbons) together with the high risks involved and capital-intensive nature associated with the industry dictates the need for robust control and management of oil and gas assets whether in design and manufacture, construction, installation, operations, inspection maintenance and repair.

The use of piping and piping systems plays a critical role within an oil and gas infrastructure, which is responsible for transporting fluids and gases. Similarly, as with any other oil and gas asset, all piping systems may be susceptible to damage from mechanical or chemical species such as internal and external corrosion. One of the most significant piping damage mechanisms is Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI) – this specific form of damage has the potential for piping failure causing financial losses as well as the cost of intervention and repair.

This training course will present all delegates a detailed and comprehensive insight into oil and gas piping and piping systems covering piping design, piping materials, fabrication, inspection and maintenance, piping protection and so forth.

This training course will serve as a comprehensive introduction for newcomers as well as a useful update and refresher for those with industry experience to fulfil the industry’s ongoing need for knowledgeable, skilled and competent project management individuals.


The objectives of this course shall be to deliver to all delegates the following attributes which include but not limited to:

  • Develop a deep understanding of oil and gas piping design;
  • To understand piping materials design and selection – piping materials classes;
  • Understand the importance of piping and systems as a ‘fluids and gases’ transport mechanisms
  • Understand the significance and importance of piping failure – mechanical and corrosion failure mechanism and how to mitigate piping failures;
  • To acquire knowledge of piping inspection methodologies and non-destructive techniques (NDT);
  • The use of fittings in conjunction with piping and piping systems – pressure vessels, storage tanks, valves, pumps; and
  • To understand the relevant international piping codes and standards
  • Introduction and broad overview of the oil and gas industry;
  • Detailed insight into the Upstream, Midstream and Downstream oil and gas sectors including production, processing and transport facilities;
  • To understand design and selection of piping materials for onshore and subsurface facilities;
  • Piping design;
  • Piping materials manufacture/fabrication, installation, operations;
  • Fundamentals of Design and Construction of Pressure Vessels, Storage Tanks and Piping;
  • Piping Failure Mechanisms and Failure Mitigation Methods;
  • Piping – Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)
  • Piping Inspections and Non-Destructive Testing
  • Integrity Management of Piping Systems
  • Application of international piping codes and standards – ASME B31.3, API 570
  • Case Studies
