Pipeline & Transportation

Fundamentals of Onshore and Offshore Pipeline Systems


This intensive, ten-day foundation level course covers the design, construction, and operation of pipeline systems. The focus is on pipeline routing, hydraulics, mechanical design, and construction for both onshore and offshore pipelines. The result of this course is cost-effective, safe and environmentally sound design, construction, inspection, operation, and maintenance of pipelines. Design problems and group projects are an integral part of this course.


By the end of this course participants will learn:

  • How to apply mechanical and physical principles to all phases of pipeline design, construction, and operation
  • To identify similarities and differences of onshore and offshore pipeline systems
  • To incorporate construction methods, commissioning, pressure test, and start-up into the design of a pipeline system
  • About applying safety and environmental regulations for a sound design
  • Common sense methods and technical requirements to define pipeline routes and facilities locations
  • The importance of fluid properties and process to pipeline systems design and construction

Target Audience

Technical professionals who are new to the pipeline business or need a broad understanding of the pipeline business including pipeline project managers, pipeline engineers, facilities engineers, pipeline design and construction engineers, engineering and construction contractors
