Liquid pipeline systems will generally require pumps to pressure the fluid to a level for overcoming pipe friction (due to pipe roughness), rise in elevation, and thermal losses that increase fluid viscosity and, hence, increase pressure loss. To design and select pumps for pipeline applications, a variety of standards are referred to.

5.1 Pump and System Design Standards
5.2 System Head
5.3 American Petroleum Institute Gravity and SG Relationship
5.4 Performance of Centrifugal Pumps
5.5 Cavitation in Centrifugal Pumps
5.6 Centrifugal Pumps and Viscous Liquids
5.7 Centrifugal Pump Limits
5.8 Pump Surge in System Operation
5.9 Performance of Positive Displacement Pumps
5.10 Measurement Units and Conversion Factors for Pumps
