CSA: Z662:19 Pipeline Systems – Essentials (2 Day Course) 


Focusing on the general requirements of oil and gas pipelines, this newly-updated course reviews all relevant clauses in the latest 2019 edition of the Z662 standard, as well as its application through all pipeline phases, from design through to abandonment. A greater emphasis on practical information, exercises and case studies assists in conveying the standard’s requirements and rules that apply across various workplaces. This course provides a timely update to previous participants of CSA Z662 training and serves as a solid foundation from which to participate in additional, more specialized training. 

Overview (Course Description) 

Designing, constructing, operating and maintaining Canadian pipelines require not only specific skill sets but intimate knowledge of the requirements of the latest 2019 edition of CSA Z662 Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems. CSA Z662 is a National Standard of Canada, and is referenced in all federal, provincial and territorial regulation, many of whom adopt the new edition immediately upon release.
