Tech Talk: TERMINAL PIPING INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT
Achieving cost-effective risk management while maintaining compliance to local state and federal regulations being the ultimate goals for Oil & Gas and petrochemical operators. Managing process safety, environmental & business risk effectively are the key element that can be achieve through holistic asset integrity management not only for vessel & storage tanks but to the mechanical integrity of the piping system as well. Piping system failure or leakage could lead to significant impact on the business caused by production setback, calamitous effect on environment due to fluid released or even safety impact in case of explosion or fire.
The overall scale of piping systems, its process complexities, accessibility and level of inspection effectiveness are few known challenges in establishing strategy for piping integrity management program. These challenges amplified by the cost related to the inspection program and the diversity of inspection techniques available in the market.
In this session, we will share some of the good practices in order to help managers and engineers to make the right decision developing cost-effective piping inspection program and to achieve optimum level of inspection effectiveness based on 3 fundamentals below:
- Assessment and identify the vulnerability of the threats (i.e. external corrosion)
- Large scale “Screening” Technologies applied to identify areas of interest.
- Specific NDE Technologies / Methods applied to Quantify Areas of Interest.
