Pipeline Pressure Testing Workshop



Recent PHMSA advisories and pending regulations will soon mandate pressure tests for operating gas and liquid pipelines that have not previously been subjected to pressured leak and strength tests. This course will
provide an overview of how to efficiently plan, execute and document pipeline pressure tests that consistently satisfy code requirements as defined by CFR 49 Parts 192 and 195. This forum will also enable you to
network with other industry and agency professionals.

Our Pressure Testing Workshop will begin by outlining the objectives for performing a pressure test and how that relates to DOT requirements. The workshop will then build upon these foundations to answer many
specific pressure testing questions including:

  • What are the different types of tests that are commonly conducted?

  • What is the physical science that drives a pressure test?

  • What are the necessary steps when designing and planning a pressure test?

  • What are the necessary steps when conducting the test i.e. taking the line out of service, filling and pressurizing, and returning to service?

  • What is the required instrumentation and how does it need to be configured?

  • What data is absolutely necessary to validate a pressure test?

  • How do you determine and prove a successful pressure test?

  • What does a good test report look like?


At the completion of this training, participants will understand fully what requirements are driving pressure testing, how to set up a successful pressure test, and how to perform an analysis of the results of the
pressure test.
