This course will provide participants with the knowledge necessary to understand the operation of cleaning pipelines, how the process works, the maintenance required, and how to collect pipeline integrity data.
The purpose of the course will be to develop in participants a working knowledge of how to clean a pipeline by inserting a cleaning device, commonly known as a pig, at one end of the pipeline and allowing pipeline pressure to carry it to the other end. Participants will gain an understanding of the cleaning process as the pig travels through the pipe and scrapes the inner walls of the pipe to remove any buildup of unwanted material.
Attendees will also learn about the different types of pigs available for the various process applications. Smart pigs, which are highly sophisticated instruments that include electronics to collect various forms of data during their trip through the pipeline, will be discussed along with the associated hardware that must be maintained.
Pigging Equipment and Programs
On day one of the course participants will be introduced to various pigging types such as utility pigs, inline inspection pigs, specialty pigs, gel pigs, sealing pigs, and smart pigs. Participants will also learn about pig launchers and receivers, which are used to insert and remove the pig as it begins and ends its journey through the pipe. The pipeline pigging programs used to gather and analyze information of how the pig performs will also be covered.Day 2
During day two, participants will review the proper procedures that must be followed in order to ensure that the pigging job reaches its objectives. In addition, the day will include a review of the special tools required to aid in inspection of the pipe and ensure a smooth and efficient pigging process is achieved. Participants will also be given an introduction to the tracking systems available, as well as the HSE considerations that impact the pigging process.
This course is mainly targeted to process operators, process technologists, and laboratory and maintenance personnel. The course can also be applicable to employees working with equipment and materials purchasing, equipment procurement, job planning, and immediate supervisors to the working technicians.
Participants should have some recent exposure to oil and gas pigging terminology and activities.
