Tech Talk Tuesday: Session 11 - Benefits of MFL Ultra

Pipeline Integrity Framework Series

19 January 2021, 11 am CET

The principle of Magnetic Flux Leakage (MFL) for identifying metal loss defects in pipelines has been known since the 19th century. In the 1960s, the first MFL in-line inspection (ILI) tools were introduced. From then on, continuous improvement of this technology took place. Today, a common standard MFL tool is able to detect metal loss defects down to 10 mm in size. However, in recent years we have seen a higher demand for technologies that can detect defects even smaller than 10 mm. Therefore, ROSEN has made great efforts to further develop the capabilities of MFL tools with increased resolution and detection thresholds.

However, the question is, why should you care about defects that are only 5 mm, 3 mm or 1 mm in size? Are they even a threat to your pipeline, even if you can barely see them with your eyes? This webinar will focus on these very questions and the benefits of ultra-high resolution MFL technology.

Presenters:
Johannes Spille, International Project Manager, ROSEN Group
Johannes Spille has six years of experience in the oil and gas industry and holds a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering. He joined ROSEN in 2017 as an International Project Manager. In this role, he is leading global projects to execute and launch new services – such as RoCorr MFL-A Ultra – and providing technical expertise on the feasibility of ILI projects.

Tech Talk Tuesday: Session 12 - EMAT/UT Crack Detection

Pipeline Integrity Framework Series

26 January 2021, 11 am CET

Let's get cracking – An introduction to ROSEN’s crack detection in-line inspection (ILI) technologies and how to manage cracks using ROSEN’s Crack Management Framework.

This webinar will provide an understanding of what cracking threats exist in pipelines and the technologies ROSEN offers to detect and size them (EMAT & UT), along with the challenges associated with these data sets. We will review how we can maximize the value of these data sets by better understanding these challenges using the ROSEN Crack Management Framework. This framework includes the key elements of a program needed to understand, quantify and effectively manage the threat of cracking.

Presenters:
Joerg Grillenberger, Technical Solutions Specialist, ROSEN Group
Joerg Grillenberger has more than 13 years of experience with ROSEN’s EMAT technology and holds a Master’s degree in Geoinformatics.
As Technical Solutions Specialist, he is supporting Sales and customers with his technical expertise on the feasibility of crack-detection ILI projects.

Michael Palmer, Principal Integrity Engineer, ROSEN Group
Michael Palmer has been with ROSEN for over ten years, where he focuses on supporting clients with their pipeline integrity management needs.
He has a Master's degree in Mechanical and Material Engineering from the University of Newcastle upon Tyne, UK, and is a chartered engineer with the Institute of Mechanical Engineers, UK. He has completed and managed multiple fitness-for-purpose, corrosion growth, and risk assessments, as well as supported clients worldwide in managing their cracking threats. Michael is the engineering lead for the ROSEN crack management services group in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK.

Special Thursday Session: Navigating the Minefield of External SCC Management

Pipeline Integrity Framework Series

28 January 2021, 11 am CET

The management of external Stress Corrosion Cracking (SCC) is a ‘hot topic’ within the pipeline industry worldwide.

This session will review the key messages addressed in the recently published NACE MP white paper ‘Navigating the minefield of external SCC Management’ [1]. In line with recent experiences, the speaker further reflects on current critical industry challenges around the topic e.g. (i) improving SCC POI, (ii) managing circumferential SCC, (iii) modelling/inferring SCC growth rates. An outlook on the role of data analytics in supporting the management of SCC will also be discussed.

Presenters:
Daniel Sandana, Principal Engineer, ROSEN Group
Daniel Sandana is a Principal Materials & Corrosion Engineer at ROSEN. He has a MSC in Materials Science and Engineering from ESIREM in France, and a PhD in SCC of pipeline steels from Newcastle University in the UK. He has over 15 years of experience in asset integrity management within the upstream and transmission markets worldwide. A large part of his experience resides in ensuring the operational integrity of aging process plants and pipelines, and providing materials and corrosion consultancy for front-end engineering and design projects. He has managed Research, Development and Testing (RD&T) programs to support design and integrity management activities, and to address operational integrity of Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) systems. His current interests include supporting pipeline operators addressing stress corrosion cracking and crack management strategies.

Tech Talk Tuesday: Session 13 - Challenging Pipeline Inspections

Pipeline Integrity Framework Series

2 February 2021, 11 am CET

This session will explain the difference between conventional (piggable) and challenging (unpiggable or difficult to inspect) pipelines. What makes a pipeline unpiggable or difficult to inspect? How can these pipelines be inspected with special in-line inspection (ILI) tools for geometry, metal loss/corrosion/wall thickness and cracks? Which technologies are available for these challenging pipelines? Which solutions are available in the ROSEN/KTN Toolbox for pipelines without flow? In addition, some short case studies will be shown.

Presenters:
Ulrich Schneider, Business Development Manager, ROSEN Group
Ulrich Schneider has experience in oil and gas, and pipelines since 1981. Before he joined KTN in 2014, which is now part of the ROSEN Group, he spent eight years as a pipeline operator and twelve years each with two inspection vendors. Ulrich holds a Master’s degree in Mechanical Engineering. He worked in various positions as project manager, in sales and operations, and is now Business Development Manager for KTN/ROSEN Group. He was involved in hundreds of pipeline inspection projects, presented many papers on international pipeline conferences and conducted trainings and seminars on pipeline inspection for customers and operators.
