Pipeline technologies

It describes pipeline design and how routes are selected, safety considerations, sizing, flow and pressure control and storage. The choice of pipeline materials is discussed and major pipeline components are reviewed from coatings and fittings to pumps and compressors. Construction techniques and associated issues are explained from stringing, welding and trenching to backfilling, cleaning, sizing, quality control and testing. Operations and maintenance content includes a review of control, integrity, corrosion protection and repairs.

The market

The Douglas-Westwood onshore pipelines market modelling process is based on actual project data and involves thorough independent scrutiny of each of the prospects on the company’s database, then examines the market drivers and prospects. Due to Douglas-Westwood’s project-based evaluation, some prospects have been moved backwards by one or more years. This ‘slippage’ of projects allows the forecasts to reflect the delays and schedule overruns that can occur in the industry.

Expenditure is broken down into the main spend areas of land and right of way, line pipe and fittings, pipeline construction, pump station and equipment and others (including delivery systems, communications and vehicles).
