Course summary

This course will focus on the principles for design, build, commissioning, maintenance and operational requirements laid out in IGEM/TD/1 Edition 5 – steel pipelines and associated installations for high pressure gas transmission and the risk models adopted in IGEM/TD/2 Edition 2 – assessing the risks from high pressure natural gas pipelines.  The course consists of a combination of presentations, practical activities and group discussions.

The course will be delivered in three, three-hour sessions on 15, 16 and 18 March.
