      Today we continue our review of crude oil pipeline economics with a look at the rules-of-thumb for determining what pipeline transportation rates would be. In Part 1 of this series we discussed the fact that new pipeline development is driven by either need or opportunity, and more often than not, a combination of the two. The key question that.

Pipelines are the irreplaceable core of the U.S. petroleum transportation system and hence the key to meeting petroleum demand.

pipeline operators to improve public awareness of pipelines. The purpose of the guidelines, known as Recommended Practice or Public Awareness Programs for Pipeline Operators, is to reduce pipeline accidents, which are often attributable to digging by homeowners, contractors, and farmers. Principles of Rate Making and Rate Design for Oil Pipelines Emma J.

INTRODUCTION This tutorial addresses the basic principles of petroleum refining, as they relate to the produc tion of ultra-low-sulfur fuels (ULSF), in particular gasoline (ULS G).

Guidelines for the Evaluation of Petroleum Reserves and Resources 3 Petroleum reserves and resources are important to both companies and countries.

Numerous regulatory bodies around the world have developed regulations relating to the evaluation and exter-nal reporting of reserves. Construction on a new pipeline is a very meticulous process, full of safeguards and specialized teams, making a partnership investment for natural gas drilling a sound, responsible investment.

A new pipeline project takes up to 18 months to complete from start to finish. establishing a meaningful reference tool to enhance learning for the Pipeline Construction Inspector as a complement to the existing industry knowledge base and documentation (such as recognition and alignment with the American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice for Basic Inspection Requirements — New Pipeline Construction (API ).

Pipeline estimating mainly is based on it's crews for each activity. Typically, the cost is measured in units of Diameter-Inch-Mile (DIM) or per meter.

Typically, cost is calculated based on spreads. A Spread is the sub-division of total length of Pipeline; Pipelines of small length may have only one spread, whereas longer pipelines may have.

(4) Updated Specialist Referral Procedures in IRM (5) Removed petroleum controlled issues formerly at IRM in Delegation Orders and as both were rescinded. Butradiographic NDT (X-ray) is still preferred to evaluate pipe weld integrity, in both large and small pipeline projects.

Automatic (or mechanized) welding is starting to be used on large diameter gas pipeline construction to improve production rate and reduce cost. Since the operating cost is among the most sensitive factors to uncertainties in economic evaluation of petroleum exploration and development projects, scientific prediction of the operating cost.

pipeline remains in service Attach a branch connection and valve to the main pipeline Cut-out a section of the main pipeline wall through the valve to connect the branch to the main pipeline Current technology has improved reliability and reduced complications Hot tapping can be used to add connections to a wide range of pipelines Transmission.

Operate under The Interstate Commerce Act and regulates the rates and practices of oil pipeline companies engaged in interstate transportation. Establish “just and reasonable” rates to encourage maximum use of oil pipelines.
