ENGINEERING

We provide mechanical, civil, structural, pipeline, process piping, instrumentation, electrical, construction engineering, and drafting. CCI provides engineering capabilities tailored to fit client’s specific needs.

 

HYDRAULIC SIMULATION

Our engineers use hydraulic simulation to calculate pressure drop and flow distribution through gas and liquid piping systems. The analysis includes expected temperatures, pressures, and volumes flowing through the pipeline, as well as environmental conditions and restrictions along its path. This allows capacity determination of existing and proposed piping systems and sizing of:

  • Pipe

  • Pumps

  • Control Valves

PIPELINE FITNESS FOR SERVICE

Pipeline Fitness for Service is a comprehensive analysis of a pipeline’s current and future integrity based on accepted industry methods. The program provides our clients a clear plan for inspection, repair, and mitigation actions, which, when scheduled and completed, ensure safety, reliability and regulatory compliance. Deliverables are:

  • Data Review & Anomaly Identification

  • Immediate Integrity Assessment

  • Future Integrity Assessment

  • Remediation Plan
