Date: Thursday, June 15, 2017
Time: 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM EDT

Presenter: Guy Desjardins, Desjardins Integrity Ltd.
Project Team Leader: David Aguiar, PG&E PRCI
Project Manager: Laurie Perry

Guy Desjardins of Desjardins Integrity Ltd. will be presenting information on PRCI project SCC-1-2 “Procedure for Determining the Number of Excavations to Validate SCCDA”. The goal of the research was to develop a statistically valid approach to determine the number of excavations required to confirm either the presence or absence of SCC. The research developed a Bayesian statistical methodology that gives users the ability to determine the number of excavations required based on the initial probabilistic susceptibility and the results of the excavations.

The webinar will discuss the factors which contribute to the probabilistic susceptibility to SCC and the factors which contribute to the probability that a specific site has SCC. The webinar will also cover the Bayesian method and how excavation results can confirm the presence or absence of SCC.

Expected Benefits/Learning Outcomes

  • After attending this webinar the participants will be able to determine the number of excavations required to confirm the presence or absence of SCC in a pipeline segment as part of the Direct Assessment process.

Who Should Attend?

  • Anyone who manages integrity management programs
  • Those who manage, perform, or oversee SCCDA projects or programs as part of the overall corrosion control program within their company.
  • PLEASE FEEL FREE TO FORWARD TO OTHERS IN YOUR COMPANY THAT MAY BE INTERESTED!
