Main Gathering Station (MGS) belongs to the oil and gas company in the Central Java region that serves as terminal storage for crude oil. The company will improve facilities by constructing new storage tank and header manifold. The capacity to be accommodated by 14000 Bbls tank with the aim of being able to fulfill oil demand in the surrounding area. In line with the construction of these equipment also includes piping system that will be designed. Remembering the distribution function for crude oil fluid of pipe on inlet and outlet tank and connected to the header manifold, other than in designing also needed analysis of the piping line. The feasibility of design on pipe NPS 6 can be assessed from the result of the stress that does not exceed the value of allowable stress based on ASME B 31.3 with pipe stress analysis software and also the highest nozzle load results both force and moment to meet the permissible limits. Highest value of stress due to sustained load in the outlet and inlet tank respectively 4119.3 psi and 3268.1 psi. While highest stress due to thermal load at the tank outlet of 3395.9 psi and inlet tank of 4796.8 psi.
