Presented at the10th Annual Universal Delayed Coking Seminar, Long Beach, CA, August 1-3, 2005. Presented at the IV Congresso Rio Automacao, Centro de Convencoes – FIRJAN, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, May 2007.
Used worldwide in thousands of wellhead applications the inherently safer design practice presented in this paper ensured that flowline pipe was specified with a maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) equal to or greater than the maximum pressure expected to be produced by the well.
