Here you can find all the transcripts from the first week of the YPPE Fest webinar series.

Day 1

  • Date: 23rd March 2020
  • Presenter: Dr. Sameera Naib
  • Company: HDM Pipelines
  • Title of presentation: Crack Growth Assessments in Welded Pipelines
  • Unfortunately this webinar was not recorded.
  • Day 2

  • Date: 24th March 2020
  • Presenter: Lewis Barton
  • Company: ROSEN UK
  • Title of presentation: Corrosion Diagnosis, A Fundamental Necessity of Integrity
  • Synopsis: Corrosion affects all metallic assets in one form or another. Yet, corrosion management activities are often, if not always, based on the same reactive approaches. In-line Inspection (ILI) is considered to provide the most complete data set for pipeline assessment; which in turn, has led to a reliance upon its results. To ensure a pipeline is protected from its current, and future corrosion threats, a smart and holistic analysis of ILI data must be adopted.

  • Day 3

  • Date: 25th March 2020
  • Presenter: Derek Storey
  • Company: Inspipe Integrity
  • Title of presentation: Precise Geometry Data Avoids Costly Offshore Repair
  • Synopsis: Learning about practical alternatives to conservative codes that can establish extent of repair required on a damaged pipeline, along with what makes the chosen method effective.

  • Day 4

  • Date: 26th March 2020
  • Presenter: Dave Cockfield
  • Company: IK
  • Title of presentation: Pathfinder – A new direction in pipeline proving, debris mapping and operational pigging
  • Synopsis: The pathfinder foam geometry tool was originally developed as a low risk, cost effective soft bodied tool for measuring pipeline geometry. This session sets out to demonstrate the functionality of the Pathfinder, applications and the extent of its operational capability through several high level case studies.

  • Day 5

  • Date: 27th March 2020
  • Presenter: Geert Bontekoe
  • Company: Quest Integrity
  • Title of presentation: Do We Require Gauge Pigs for Difficult Pipelines? (“To Gauge or Not to Gauge”)
  • Synopsis: For piggable pipelines the standard pigging sequence normally consists out of: Cleaning, gauge pigging, calliper pigging, and finally, the inline inspection (ILI) tool. This has worked well and is often recommended and required by the pipeline owners. But can the same sequence be used for difficult-to-pig pipelines and should the pipeline owner require a gauge pig run?
