Accurate estimates of corrosion growth behavior are critical for effective integrity management, to reduce uncertainty in future predictions, and enable continued safe and economic pipeline operation. Following a brief description of conventional methods of corrosion growth assessment from repeat ILI data, this webinar will go on to show how data analytics and machine learning techniques can be used to enhance the resulting corrosion behavior estimates. It will further demonstrate how corrosion growth distributions can be estimated for a pipeline, where in-line inspection data is not available.
