ROSEN served as sponsor for the 7th Annual Pipeline Integrity Management Forum that took place from February 5th – to 7th and also attended as a keynote speaker at the forum in Berlin, Germany.

Markus Brors, Executive General Manager ROSEN Group, and Gaffar Mirzoev, Head of R&D – AMT, presented Challenges and Solutions of a Practical Implementation of a Pipeline Integrity Management (PIM) System for a Russian client. The client-specific case study discussed the challenges and solutions for implementing  a state-of-the-art PIM solution At a transmission pipeline operator.

Topics included:

  • Outline Challenges in Pipeline Integrity
  • Legislative drivers for the project
  • Data integration tasks
  • Risk model introduction
  • Inline Inspection Data in context of the process
  • The right mix: Local execution and global product reach

AMT’s involvement is established through a strategic partnership as official representative of ROSEN integrity pigging equipment and technology at OJSC Gazprom and its subsidiaries.  AMT and ROSEN are jointly introducing innovative technologies for instrument survey involving non-destructive testing methods; advanced methods of appraising the technical condition of main gas pipelines; pipeline pigging and expert appraisal of the industrial safety of technical facilities in the oil-and-gas complex of the Russian Federation.

What ROSEN has concluded from this project is the advantage of local expertise and knowledge within the legislation system and policies reinforced by AMT.  This is how  challenges arising from language barriers and Russian Integrity Management standards can be  overcame.
