About the course

This course is a quick reference for day-to-day pipeline operations. For more than 35 years, the Pipeline Rules of Thumb has served as the "go-to" reference for solving even the most day-to-day vexing pipeline workflow problems. Along with over 30% new or updated material regarding codes, construction processes, and equipment, this course continues to offer hundreds of "how-to" methods and handy formulas for pipeline construction, design, and engineering and features a multitude of calculations to assist in problem solving, directly applying the rules and equations for specific design and operating conditions to illustrate correct application, all in one convenient reference.
