Patrol a mile-long simulated gas pipeline to ensure it is operating correctly — and safely.
This module requires trainees to perform pipeline patrolling activities on a pipeline right-of-way including a pipe section that is suspended on a bridge. Trainees are required to recognize and react to any Abnormal Operating Conditions (AOC’s) that could threaten the integrity and safety of the pipeline. Upon completion of the patrolling inspection, trainees must properly document and report their findings.
