As pumping requirements must match pipeline characteristics, the first step in liquid pipeline pump station design is the analysis of the pipeline hydraulic gradient for varying flow conditions for the particular route elevation profile. This defines the length and elevation change of the pipeline and is used to establish pipeline pressure, pipeline pumping power, number and location of stations, number of pumps, and appropriate mode of operation.
