Speaker: Adam Lind, P. Eng., Sr. Pipeline Engineer at Kinder Morgan Canada
Liquid pipeline operations are not well understood by many young engineers. The presenter will lay out the basics of:
- controlling fluid in a pipeline
- maintaining product quality in a batched operation
- ensuring adequate over-pressure protection
In addition, the presentation will briefly touch on what’s involved in reactivating a liquids pipeline that has been idle for a number of years. This will draw on the personal experience the presenter has on this subject through his involvement on the Trans Mountain Expansion Project between Edmonton, AB and Burnaby, BC.
