Home Industries Oil & Gas Onshore & Offshore Pipelines

Onshore & Offshore Pipelines

We have designed pipelines for transporting crude oil, natural gas, refined petroleum products, LPG, LNG, NGL, condensates, water, slurries and various chemicals, both in single-phase and multi-phase flows. These pipelines have ranged in diameter from 3 inches (75 millimeters) to 5 feet (1500 millimeters).

In addition to planning and designing pipelines, we provide complete design-build services for associated facilities such as pump and compression systems and stations, pig traps, slug catchers, distribution and valve stations, terminals and reception facilities, control, operations and monitoring stations.

  • Subsea Systems
  • Flow assurance analysis both under Steady State & Transient conditions, including multi-phase, multi-product, mixed flows, non-Newtonian, high pressure and high temperature (HPHT) and cryogenic fluids, etc.
  • Stress, thermo-structural, surge, limit state and P/T rating, etc. analyses
  • Pipeline route and facilities, Geohazards, seismic, environmental and quantified risk assessments, site investigations, route selection studies
  • Rigid and flexible pipes and hoses (HPHT & Cryogenic), preparation and welding technologies, connector & terminal assemblies, manifolds, etc.
  • Pipeline/gathering line/flowline, foundations and support structures
  • Thermal insulation, surface (impact) protection and coating systems
  • Active and passive corrosion protection and inhibitor systems
  • Crossing design, horizontal directional drilling (HDD) and microtunneling
  • Failure modes detection, equipment and system condition monitoring
  • Spill prevention, control and containment systems
  • Soil, surface and groundwater remediation applications
  • Measurement & Data Acquisition
  • Monitoring & Detection & Guidance
  • Industrial Networks & Communications
  • Protection & Isolation & Insulation

Essenmotion provides assessments on actual risk levels, mitigation measures, compliance to international and national regulations and develops models for pressurized pipeline release scenarios for both flammable liquids, gases and inert substances (such as Carbon Dioxide, CO2) and major accident prevention studies where fluids are transferred by buried pipelines or downstream grids.

The planning and execution of a pipeline project require extensive knowledge of numerous geographical, political, regulatory, social and environmental issues. With representatives worldwide, we have people in every major market who can provide the specialized knowledge and skills needed to work effectively with land-owners, local authorities and environmental agencies.
