Train and improve knowledge basis on natural gas transportation by pipeline. It highlights the key factors of this transportation modal and its main components that allow calculating the gas transportation rate or tariff. It covers gas transmission pipelines technology, equipment (centrifugal compressor and gas turbines), operational and economic aspects. Enables participants to understand the main variables used for the calculation and their sensitivity, that are key for the feasibility of a gas pipeline Project. Covers availability of the pipeline compression system using Monte Carlo and Thermohydraulic simulations. Also presents a brief review of statistics and financing mathematics. Case studies are presented as class exercises.
- This course can be performed online or at Client's office.
