Given that lifetime extension and zero incidents are increasingly important objectives in the pipeline industry, inline inspection using geometry, MFL and UT technologies have become a long-time standard. Significant enhancements of these technologies over the past several years have helped to improve the understanding of the assets, thereby enabling preventive maintenance and minimizing operational risks.
We are therefore pleased to invite you to a free webinar that will outline how to close the gap of unknown material information of your pipeline. The webinar will be presented by our experts in integrity as well as materials and welding, Marianna Bakayeva and Simon Slater.
In order to calculate the maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) of a pipeline section, ILI technology can furthermore support verification of key parameters such as diameter and wall thickness, and help close gaps in pipeline records. However, for a third critical parameter, material properties, the industry has so far relied primarily on assumptions, since no efficient way of determining this value was available.
Whether on its own or as part of a regular inspection campaign, ROSEN’s new RoMat PGS service can be used to verify a pipeline’s material properties and reliably identify yield strength outliers. This allows for weak links in the pipeline’s integrity assessment to be eliminated and operational safety to be increased.
Join the webinar for:
- technical insights on the technology, and
- an in-depth discussion of the integrity assessment process to uncover the pipeline’s DNA.
Based on the inspection results of the RoMat PGS service, ROSEN offers specialized data management, integrity assessment, and engineering services for M(A)OP validation. Accurate information on every single pipe joint allows for meaningful calculations as part of risk assessment programs or fitness-for-service assessments.
This webinar will be presented live at 11:00 AM GMT, 1 June 2017.
KEY LEARNING OBJECTIVES
- RoMat PGS In-line Inspection Technology – expound on how the technology and service function
- ROSEN PGS Data Evaluation – review of how collected data is used to identify pipe grade on each joint of pipe
- Post-Inspection Activities – excavation plans, in-line inspection calibration and validation explained
Marianna Bakayeva is head of ROSEN Integrity Services for the European, African, CIS and south-west Asian regions. Marianna joined ROSEN in 2000, occupying positions as project manager for ILI projects and for integrity services before taking on her current role. She graduated with honors from the State University of Oil and Gas in Ukraine in 1997 with a degree from the department Design, Construction and Operation of Transmission Pipelines.
Simon Slater is a Principal Materials and Welding engineer based in Newcastle upon Tyne in the UK. Simon joined the ROSEN Group in 2011 after more than 12 years in the steel industry, working in research & development and oil & gas pipe manufacturing. He has extensive expertise in metallurgy, welding engineering, material properties and testing, manufacturing processes and structural integrity assessments. He is a chartered engineer and member of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
