Program Manager: Thomas Marlow, PRCI

Please join PRCI as Dr. Yong-Yi Wang, founder and president of Center for Reliable Energy Systems (CRES), presents his research results related to PRCI project for Conducting Strain-Based Assessment of Buried Pipelines (SBD-1-2).

The research conducted by Dr. Wang set out to improve pipeline design to better accommodate significant localized ground movement such as that caused by landslides, earthquakes, or subsidence/settlement. When such a ground movement event occurs along the right-of-way (ROW) of a buried pipeline, it is imperative that the pipeline operator determine whether the ground movement is a threat to pipeline integrity in order to protect those responding to the event, those living near the affected ROW, and the environment.

This webinar will discuss the research findings and provide guidance to pipeline operators responding to a ground movement event.

Expected Benefits/Learning Outcomes from attending this webinar:

  • Understanding factors that must be considered in response to a confirmed ground movement event,
  • Being able to make critical decisions immediately after an event, such as continued service at full pressure, pressure reduction, or shutdown, and
  • Ability to make use of the structured response plans with systematic considerations of an operator’s objectives, tolerance to risks, site-specific soil and pipeline conditions, and availability of information with known time constraints.
