Abstract: The requirement to design pipelines to transport high-temperature contents has become a regular feature of the industry in recent years. However, there is no single design concept which has been adopted as a best solution for these lines. A number of different pipeline configurations have evolved to cope with the sometimes-severe loading imposed by the high temperatures in combination with internal pressure. These, and the reasoning behind their selection, are described briefly in the paper.

Experience has shown that the feasibility design stage is particularly important, especially for fast-track high-temperature pipeline design. A failure to identify correctly and assess the response of the pipeline to the loading can result in a non-optimum decision regarding the procurement of pipe to be made at the start of detailed design when the steel is ordered. Thus, in the later stage of detailed design, compromises in the allowable operating conditions and even complete reconfiguration of the pipeline have to be made, considerably adding to the cost of the project.

This paper highlights key differences between the front-end engineering design (FEED) for conventional pipelines and those required to carry high-temperature contents. A systems approach is proposed for the latter with the objective of enabling early ordering of pipe with a better assurance of a successful completion of the detailed design.
