Oil and gas management dissertation topics have been gaining prominence in academic literature over the past few decades, mainly as a result of accredited academic courses and professional research efforts in the sector. Oil and gas research topics typically focus on management issues, environmental concerns, processes and protocols in the industry as well as maintenance of resources. List of.
PIPELINE LEAK DETECTION by Marcia Golmohamadi A THESIS Presented to the Faculty of the Graduate School of the MISSOURI UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY In Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree MASTER OF SCIENCE IN COMPUTER ENGINEERING 2015 Approved by Maciej Zawodniok, Advisor Mehdi Ferdowsi Rosa Zheng.Natural gas is one of the oldest power sources in the United States, ever since it started powering Baltimore’s streetlights in 1816. Like crude oil and coal, natural gas is a hydrocarbon-based.A risk model for TPD of gas distribution pipelines is developed to allow for a more robust decision making process and better prioritization of the allocation of resources for operators of natural gas distribution pipelines.
The United States government has campaigned to keep Central Asian oil and natural gas pipelines from crossing Iranian territory. How successful has this policy been, and what have been the costs of U.S. success? The major written assignment is an analytical research paper on some issue of current importance to the region. Chronologies: Sorting is the grouping of information by similarities.
In the past, natural gas was considered useless and was burned on torches, but nowadays it gains more attention and is applicable in a wider range of economy activities. That is the reason why Middle Eastern countries, who are traditionally involved in oil exploitation, are more and more interested in the exploration and production of natural gas. Several Middle Eastern countries - Saudi.
The Canadian Federal Government’s purchase of the Trans Mountain pipeline in 2018 was seen by many as a singular action to support the pipeline industry. However, this research will contend that this is not the case because this thesis will show that the federal government has indemnified the oil and gas pipeline industry in Canada over the past 60 years.
Investigating the Strategic Impacts of Natural Gas on Transportation Fuel Diversity and Vehicle Flexibility by Alice K. Chao Submitted to the Engineering Systems Division on May 10, 2013 in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of Master of Science in Technology and Policy at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The velocity of pigs in natural gas pipelines can be erratic due to the compressible nature of the gas. Low pipeline pressure means that there is less dampening effect. This can lead to high acceleration, high pig velocity and subsequent deceleration of the pig or pig train. Knowledge of the pig train velocity profile is important to allow inspection of gas lines using an Ultrasonic pig train.
For the purposes of this article, discussion will be limited to pipelines installed in Location Classes 3 and 4 (suburban and urban environments) and in low pressure distribution systems and service lines (downstream of transmission systems) and for pipelines NPS 12 (DN 300) and smaller. The codes covering higher pressure natural gas systems in large-scale natural gas distribution systems are.

ABSTRACT Pipeline is a major way for natural gas transportation. Accidental gas release from a pipeline might lead to great economic losses and casualties. Therefore, it is important to investigate the dispersion characteristics of natural gas release from pipelines. Most previous studies on accidental natural gas release from pipelines mainly focused on bare pipelines and adopted simplified.
Master of Public Policy By Adam Pollock Washington, DC April 16, 2007. Statistical Examination of the Relationship Between Return on Equity and Plant Investment for Natural Gas Pipelines ABSTRACT This thesis examines the link between Return on Equity (ROE) for natural gas pipelines and their investment in infrastructure. ROE is the level of profits that a regulated utility is allowed to earn.
This thesis examines alarm forecasting methods for a natural gas production pipeline to assure the efficient transportation of high-quality natural gas. Natural gas production companies use pipelines to transport natural gas from the extraction well to a distribution point. Forecasting natural gas pipeline pressure alarms helps control room operators maintain a functioning pipeline and avoid.
Hazardous liquid and natural gas transmission pipelines have received limited attention by planning scholars even though local development decisions can have broad consequences if a rupture occurs. In this dissertation, I evaluated the implications of land-use planning for reducing risk to transmission pipeline hazards in North Carolina via three investigations. First, using a survey of.
Gas and hazardous liquid pipelines; Liquefied natural gas (LNG) plants; Breakout tanks (tanks used for storage or flow relief) Pipeline accidents and incidents going back to 2002; Users can click on individual pipelines to find operator information and contact details, pipeline status and length, and the commodity being carried by the pipeline. For accidents, available information includes the.
The thesis is based on a large pool of written accounts and interviews with practitioners in Kazakhstan’s oil and gas sector and foreign policy. In this thesis it is argued that Kazakhstan has developed its oil and gas resources and export routes in accordance with its multi-vector foreign policy.
