Fairview SANTOS GTP Training up to MLV160

TAFE Queensland SkillsTech has successfully delivered an extensive four week training program for the GLNG Upstream Operators from Wallumbilla, east of Roma.   The program consisted of two weeks of enterprise Gas Transmission Pipeline(GTP) theory followed by two weeks of onsite practical lessons, moving from F-PCS-01 near the Scraper Launcher Trap at Fairview to MLV160 (main line valve at 160 kms).
Instructor Mal Garrick and participants travelled to MLV160 checking the operation of the Saipem built DN1050 Pipeline against the Saipem operating manual.  The operations of the MLVs, limits switches, catholic Protection, solar panels and batteries, instrumentation, Comm’s huts, PSV, hand control valves and control settings were inspected and checked to ensure correct operation.
The GTP has a maximum capacity of approximately 1400 million standard cubic feet per day) which is required to operate the two LNG trains on Curtis Island at a minimum pressure output GTP of 6.5MPag. The pipeline configuration which satisfies the requirements is a DN1050 (42”) diameter with 10.2 MPag design pressure equal to the pipeline maximum allowable operating pressure.   This upstream pipeline training followed on from previous training delivered to the downstream operators from MLV 270 to Curtis Island locations.  The Santos EQ Pipeline GLNG Upstream Operators were extremely pleased with the training delivered by TAFE Queensland SkillsTech and provided positive feedback.
