Course Description

Piping components are basic building blocks of Oil & Gas Industries. 

Oil and Gas industries become a very competitive in the current time. Getting a right mentor and right exposer within the industry is difficult during the growth phase of your career. With limited training budget spent by the company on employee training, it is even more difficult to acquire the knowledge to success.

This course is design based on years of field experience to ensure that you know every aspect of the piping component that you are going to expose in the field. Once you are in, you can access this course for a lifetime.     

In the course, you will learn in detail about Pipe & Pipe Fittings used in Oil & Gas industries

  •  Different types of Pipe, Pipe fittings (Elbow, Tee, reducers, Caps etc.), Flanges, Gaskets,       Branch Connection, Bolting materials
  • Materials (Metal-Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Alloy Steel etc. Non-Metal- PVC/CPVC, HDPE, GRE-GRP etc.)
  •  Manufacturing methods
  • Heat treatment requirements
  •  Inspection and Testing requirements (Non-destructive Testing, Mechanical & Chemical testing)
  • Dimensions & Markings requirements
  • Code & Standard used in piping
