Fluor's in-house tools can be used to select the optimum life-cycle cost based pipeline system configuration early on in a project phase that can be taken forward to design development. These tools include:
- GASOP - gas pipeline optimization tool
- LIQUP - liquid pipeline optimization tool
Both tools utilize an in-house cost database for pipeline, pump / compressor station, fuel costs, labor costs, and inspection frequencies to develop capital and operating expenses for a calculated range of pipe diameters and in-line stations.
