Multi-Discipline Engineering

Piping Engineering Services

High-quality, fit-for-purpose piping designs that keep your project on budget.

Avoid costly rework and stay on schedule with our flexible piping engineering services

The piping team is a core part of our multi-discipline engineering services. Our engineering group encompasses piping materials and pipe stress analysis, as well as metallurgy for piping systems in oil and gas.

The team’s insights on corrosion resistance, pump cavitation, pressure drops, and thermal expansion support our process piping design services.

Our engineering consultants have a wide range of experience providing efficient piping designs for process plants and industrial projects. 

Common piping design and engineering services include: 

  • developing and stamping new and existing line class specifications
  • preparing stress calculations for the engineering model
  • defining piping and equipment metallurgies

Quality is Everything

It’s not just about delivering high-quality piping engineering designs – that’s a given.

At the end of the day, engineering services are really about transparency, collaboration, and relationships. You want a partner you can trust to keep your project on budget and schedule. We want clients to return because you see the quality of our relationship as much as the quality of the design.

Highlighted Projects

Vista’s engineering experience spans multiple decades and industries. Our highlighted projects document how we helped facility operators reduce project total installation cost (TIC) and total cost of ownership (TCO). They also explain how we’ve implemented complex new technology for emerging energy start-ups.

Multi-Discipline Engineering Services

As an integrated engineering firm, our piping services are part of a multi-disciplinary offering. Team members from each engineering discipline work together to find project design solutions fit for your unique challenges.

The engineering group also collaborates with our drafting and design services and project support teams.

Engineering Technology with a Purpose

It’s easy to get distracted by fancy new engineering technology. But it’s important to keep the focus on how each tool will benefit the project.

We’re a technology-agnostic engineering company and system integrator. That means we can deliver high-quality piping engineering services with your preferred software or tools.

Our approach is simple, the technology must serve a purpose. Whether it’s laser scans and point cloud data or computer-aided design (CAD) applications and engineering programs.

Have a specific need for an application? Our in-house development team is available to customize a problem-solving tool. For example, this video demonstrates how we collaborate on P&IDs in real-time.
