Determine length of pipe and fittings

168 ft

5280

= .03 mi

2.5 mi + .03 mi = 2.53 mi

Determine Hf

Hf = 2.53 mi x 39.78 ft/mi

Hf = 101 ft

account for several reasons. In the initial planning stages of the

pipeline, this becomes a requirement above that required for the units

supported. Taking into account the fact that the pipeline is always full

but must be accounted for on the books is very important. The length of the

line and the size of the pipe can be obtained from blue prints or drawings.

The volume of fuel in the line can be obtained by use of the following

equation:

V= 5.13 constant

V = d2 x 5.13

V = Bbls per mile

d2 = Inside diameter of pipe in inches squared

5.13 constant

d2 = 8.415

Pipeline length 3 miles

8.415 x 8.415 x 5.13 = 363 Bbls/per mi

363 x 3 = 1089.8 or 1090 BBLS in 3 miles of pipe.
