Pipeline Construction

Researchers assessed the suitability of commonly used transient hydraulic models to predict the pipe metal temperatures during gas venting operations. This has provided an opportunity for pipeline design houses to use the latest research for optimal design of pipeline vent stacks thereby reducing construction costs.

Key issues such as ignition of flammable gas, dispersion of gas, and noise levels arising from the installation and operation of vents attached to a high pressure gas pipeline were also addressed resulting in an industry guideline to determine the design, placement and operation of vents for new or augmented pipelines in both rural and urban locations.

A number of other design guidelines and models focussed on specific aspects of pipeline design, construction and operation have been prepared from the research outcomes.
