Tech Talk: Selective Seam Weld Corrosion: A New, Old Problem

This presentation will walk through a structured approach for managing the threat of selective seam weld corrosion (SSWC). It will begin with an introduction to the threat, emphasizing the need to fully understand the specific morphology of SSWC, materials in which it is present and factors that can be attributed to line pipe segments that are considered susceptible. Managing SSWC requires an appropriate assessment method combined with a focused evaluation process, to ensure the necessary levels of POD, POI and sizing can be realized. The use of an enhanced in-line inspection (ILI) system to meet these ends will be presented. Finally, the process of prioritizing anomalies for verification and subsequent remediation plans in line with the regulatory requirements will be discussed.
