The identification of critical pipelines is a crucial step in optimizing integrity management resources. ROSEN’s new digital solution for integrity management – NIMA – helps operators to digitalize and streamline their processes. NIMA enables rapid integrity and risk assessments and provides operators with both a detailed and high level view of their assets.

In this live webinar, it will be shown how a combined assessment of bending strain and corrosion was performed to increase the operational safety and reliability of an offshore pipeline, and how descriptive analytics techniques were applied to categorize its criticality.

Our experts will present the webinar live on June 19, 2019, in two sessions:

Portuguese Session
Presented by Erika Santana and Ricardo Nebias at 10:00 a.m. BRT (Brazilian time).

Spanish Session
Presented by Alejandro Reyes and Ivan Grosmann at 10:00 a.m. COT (Colombia time) and 12:00 p.m. ART (Argentina time).

Key Learning Objectives

Join the webinar to:

  • Understand how NIMA’s pattern recognition and spatial clustering algorithms enable streamlined in-house run comparisons, pipeline segmentation, and corrosion growth assessments,
  • Gain insight in how to integrate and align multiple inspection data sets for the assessment of combined threats,
  • Learn how simple but powerful descriptive analytics techniques can be used to categorize the criticality of an entire network.

Audience

This webinar is aimed at professionals with interest in digital transformation and responsibilities in pipeline integrity management.

About NIMA

With the amount of collected data and the complexity of integrity assessments increasing exponentially, the industry has been looking for a change in the integrity management software and services landscape. NIMA will bring this change by reducing complexity with intuitive data integration and systematic workflows.

NIMA can guide asset operators through the integrity management process and ensure that they are always in a position to make the best possible decisions towards operation availability and safety.

NIMA is not just software, because that would mean we are defining a set of functionalities upfront, installing the software and leaving the operator to the rest. Instead, NIMA is a framework that offers different levels of support to operators, depending on their individual needs. It consists of:

  • A flexible platform that allows for unlimited options of adaption to individual data management and integrity management requirements,
  • A process-building functionality that enables users to create and modify templates for integrity processes and integrated algorithms, as needed, and access templates created by others through an online library,
  • Instant expert consultancy services and efficient sharing of integrity management tasks through the cloud platform.
