“It’s not enough to do your best; you must know what to do, and then do your best.” (W. Edwards Deming, Statistician 1900-1993) – Challenge accepted.

At ROSEN, we strive to enable asset operators to make the best possible integrity management decisions. Each time an inspection of any given asset takes place, an enormous amount of data accumulates. Taking this raw data and cleaning, interpreting and analyzing it allows us to transform data into information and information into knowledge. Knowledge enables smarter decision-making.

From November 9 to 11, 2021, the Rio Pipeline Conference and Exhibition will take place in a fully virtual format for the first time. During the conference, Dr. Phil Hopkins will interview Hermann Rosen, President of the ROSEN Group, in a “CEO Talk” about the company’s development to date and his visions for the future. In addition, the developments and changes in the pipeline industry, e.g. due to the energy transition, will be discussed. Furthermore, we will participate in two discussions on “Integrity Assessment Technologies” and “New Technologies and Applications/Virtual Realities.” Please find more information about the topics we will present below. An overview of the conference program can be found here.


OFFSHORE

Performing in the offshore arena means performing under extreme conditions. This applies to the people that work on platforms and vessels as well as to the assets themselves. Operating 24/7 in remote locations under harsh conditions takes its toll on both people and equipment. Therefore, experts and technologies are needed that not only meet, but exceed the challenges they face.

PIPELINE INTEGRITY FRAMEWORK FOR CRACKING

Cracks threaten pipeline integrity. But not all cracks are the same. Many different forms of cracking, as well as different crack locations, pose risk to a pipeline’s efficiency and safety.

ROSEN’s Pipeline Integrity Framework for Cracking outlines all the key elements needed to develop a comprehensive and justifiable crack assessment and mitigation program. The framework guides operators through the entire process from inspection to integrity, ultimately resulting in a proper threat management plan.

APPLICATIONS FOR LOW PRESSURE PIPELINES

Gas pipelines have a variety of factors, such as certain operating conditions, that can contribute to poor inspection run behavior, resulting in low data quality and requiring tailored inspection solutions. A dominant challenge in low pressure pipelines, among many other obstacles, is to overcome speed excursions during inspection. Though the factors that contribute to speed excursions, such as excessive girth welds, bends, dents, etc., exist in most pipelines, the effects are increased in a low pressure environment.

ROSEN’s solutions for the inspection of low pressure gas pipelines improve overall run behavior and inherently improve data quality.
