The research of qualitative indicators of gas pipelines during the operation
The operation of gas pipelines is a complex of technical measures, aimed at preservation of the main stock of gas pipeline transportation facilities. The purpose of these measures is to maintain and to restore the initial operational capabilities of gas pipelines, in general and in particular areas. The line section of gas pipelines has the largest size and cost. Naturally determined process of changing the quality of gas pipelines during the operation is accompanied by the accumulation and development of damages, failures; this determines the objective need to restore the quality of operation. The practical running of the line section of gas pipelines is characterized by a certain flow of failures; therefore it is necessary to ensure the required level of reliability of the gas pipeline during the entire period of operation. The quality control study of the inter-settlement gas pipeline section was conducted, and graphs of dependence of gas pipeline quality parameters on time were presented in the work.
Keywords: line section of the gas pipeline, technological state, failures in operation, gas pipeline operation, control and quality parameters of the gas pipeline.
