ROSEN Presents The Integrated Approach For Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure Validation

“Missing Data?” Many pipeline operators face uncertainties regarding the Yield Strength (YS) of the pipeline material to establish a maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP). At the PPIM we present how our unique Integrated Approach is capable of fulfilling the requirements of MAOP validation comprehensively and holistically.
