There are a couple flat roof experts that should show up and give you guidance.
But "refelting your roof" ain't gonna fly in here.
They will want specifics on what type of system you are installing.

Have you ever done torch down roofing before? If the answer is no then I highly highly highly recommend if torch down is the way you want to go to hire a professional. There are other methods that are far less risky then a untrained person with a torch, you can achieve the same or better results using a cold process method either with adhesives or with the self adhered sheets.

So you will be nailing a base, torching a base and then torching a cap sheet? Have a picture of the area? I'm assuming your going to tear off the existing?

It depends on where the sheet lands, say the sheet lands 6" from the lap, you would simply cut up through the lap, precutting may help. If it lands 1/2 way though the roll you can either cut up or down or split the roll. By that when you get to the pipe, cut the sheet so it goes around the pipe, torch it down. Now when you restart the sheet it will lap over it in that area. What ever you do for the mid ply do the opposite for the cap sheet, or at least try. then when that's all done you install your lead and targets.

There is a reason why some roofers do not do torch downs any more. There is far better ways to accomplish the same thing with out the possibility of burning the house/building down.
