Prospect of arctic gas line leads to thermal simulation program

In 1996, Yukon Pacific Corp. began an in-house program to study the design of arctic natural gas pipelines that could operate according to a desired temperature profile.The purpose was to make the pipelines more compatible with the soils in which they are buried.The purpose of this on-gong project is to develop a design approach that, through temperature control, leads to lower capital-cost designs, reduces adverse temperature effects on the soils, and reduces the cost of mitigation for movement of the pipeline and development of differential stress on the pipe.A review of software products found no commercially available pipeline-simulation product that could adequately predict operation...
