Transmission Pipeline Design and Construction Practices

November 4-8, 2024 | GTI Energy HQ | $2,450

Course Overview:

As part of this four and a half day session, work through the pipeline design process—from pipe sizing measurements to post-construction recordkeeping under the guidance of industry experts. You'll work with a team to design a pipeline under real-life conditions and circumstances. Using maps and work sheets, you’ll learn how crossings at railroads, roads, streams, and rivers are constructed. You’ll also receive a workbook that provides a guide to the codes and standards that apply to pipeline design—all excellent resources to take back to work.

Certification Option: You may apply this course toward GTI’s Certified Gas Transmission Professional (CGTP) certification and/or Registered Gas Distribution Professional (RGDP) certification.
