What is a High-Pressure Pipeline?

Pipelines typically operate at pressures ranging from 70 to 100 bar. As a general rule, the initial compressor stations for pipelines require two-stage compression for boosting pressure from 40 to 140 bar, while intermediate compressor stations require single-stage compression from 100 to 140 bar. Some pipelines operate at high pressures. High-pressure pipelines are defined as […]

What is a Fire Tube Boiler

A fire tube boiler is a type of boiler in which hot gases from a fire pass through one or (many) more tubes running through a sealed container of water. The heat of the gases is transferred through the walls of the tubes by thermal conduction, heating the water and ultimately creating steam. The fire-tube boiler developed as the third of the four […]

What is coiled tubing?

In the oil and gas industries, coiled tubing refers to a very long metal pipe, normally 1 to 3.25 in (25 to 83 mm) in diameter which is supplied spooled on a large reel. It is used for interventions in oil and gas wells and sometimes as production tubing in depleted gas wells. Coiled tubing is often used to carry out operations similar […]

What is bourdon tube?

The Bourdon Tube is a nonliquid pressure measurement device. It is widely used in applications where inexpensive static pressure measurements are needed. A typical Bourdon tube contains a curved tube that is open to external pressure input on one end and is coupled mechanically to an indicating needle on the other end, as shown schematically below. Typical […]

What is pipeline patrol?

What is pipeline patrol? Pipeline Patrol is the inspection of pipelines to check for washouts, leaks or other abnormal conditions. It is performed commonly by using airplanes as they instantly cover large areas of the pipeline assets. They normally focus on the observation of changes that take place in an area and also various potential […]

What is pipeline gas?

What is pipeline gas? Pipeline Gas is basically natural gas (95% methane) which is obtained from oil or gas reservoirs. The reason for calling natural gas Pipeline Gas is the fact that it is always transported in the pipelines for its consumption in the industries, households, automobile fuel (CNG), Gas power plants, etc. These pipelines […]

What is pipeline design?

What is pipeline design? Pipeline Design is a plan to show the look and function of the pipeline and balance the pipeline stages. While designing pipelines certain factors should be considered such as length of the pipeline, distance covered and the expected volume to be delivered and received over the pipeline. To ensure safety, pipelines […]
