Preparation of the route prior to installation, which involves presweeping of sand waves and removal of debris using a dredger; . crossing of other pipeline routes, prepared by using specially designed mattresses or bridges. Laying of the pipeline can be conducted using different methods. The main approaches are: 27 A Quick Guide to Pipeline Engineering . The ‘S-Lay’ process, shown in Fig. 6. Single 12 m pipe sections are welded together and tested using NDT, and ﬁeld-joint coatings are applied in sequence on a barge or vessel.
6, an effective and quick approach is to use a train of pigs containing a methanol solution, followed by a drying gas such as nitrogen. This ‘methanol swabbing’ method is useful as it prevents the formation of hydrates in the pipeline. The methanol mixes with water, creating a swabbing solution that is then moved along via the trailing pigs. The advantage with this method is that the pipeline can be commissioned in one complete operation. 2 Drying using air or nitrogen along with foam pigs Nitrogen or air is often used as a drying gas since both gases have a low dewpoint.
Generally, this is used for largerdiameter pipelines of 400 mm and above: . Plates of steel are cut to the required pipe length (typically 12 m), and the longitudinal edges are prepared so that welding can be done. The edges of the plates are ﬁrstly crimped, then forced into a U-shape and ﬁnally forced into the circular O-shape using a series of cold pressing operations. Finally, the longitudinal seam is then welded internally and externally using submerged-arc welding (see Fig. 4). To prove the integrity of the fabrication, a series of tests are carried out, including; 24 Pipeline Construction and Risk Assessment .
