This is a 2 hour course using the NORSOK Standard L-002 - "Piping Design, Layout and Stress Analysis".
The NORSOK Standards are a set of standards and specifications that have been adopted by numerous major Operators in the Norwegian North Sea sector and other territories. They are based on recognised international industry codes and standards.
Billions of dollars have been spent on piping material specified to these standards.
NORSOK Standards are aimed at the Offshore, Upstream sector of the Oil and Gas industry and L-002 is based on ASME B31.3 design philosophy.
Design and layout of piping systems is subjective and there are numerous options available to the Engineer, however these are recommended practices that are based on past design and operational experience that satisfy the international codes.
Piping Design, Layout and Stress Analysis is a huge topic and this course is a basic introduction to the subject. Piping design philosophy will vary slightly from project to project and it is essential that the Piping Engineer reads the project document that covers this subject.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
