PRCI WEBINAR: Guidelines for Integrity Assessment of Difficult to Inspect Pipelines

Tue, November 12, 2019

Join the Integrity & Inspection Technical Committee as they present guidelines for the inspection of difficult to inspect pipelines using new or alternate technologies. Integrity management codes, standards and regulations recognize the potential for new/alternate technologies to emerge to address physical challenges to inspection, or provide improved capability to assess selected threats, but US regulatory guidance requires operators demonstrate “equivalent understanding” of line pipe condition when using "other" technologies; however, do not specify any process or criteria to do so. This research was initiated to fill that gap.
 
Learning outcomes/benefits of attending:
Provide background on what has been historically relied upon for integrity assessment of difficult to inspect pipelines when in-line Inspection (ILI), hydrostatic testing, and NACE direct assessment methods have not been chosen for integrity assessment.
 
Develop a technology independent framework for use by operators and service providers to demonstrate equivalent understanding when using “other technologies.”
 
Structured process, including requirements for any inspection including appropriate selection, qualification, development of a performance specification and validation.
 
Who should attend?
Integrity management personnel
