Project Synopsis

Provide preliminary gas pipeline hydraulic sizing.

Project Summary


The client, an international process engineering and design company subcontracted Process Engineering Associates, LLC (PROCESS) to provide services to the ultimate client, an international supplier of products and services to the oil and gas industry.  PROCESS was contracted to perform preliminarily sizing calculations for a 22 km long natural gas pipeline currently existing in Nigeria.

Project tasks included the development of process simulation hydraulic model based on piping distances and pipe sizing information.  The project deliverables included the simulation output, recommendations for pipe diameter modifications based on the simulation-based calculations, and a brief report that summarized the methodology used and the results of the project.
