  • Day 2

  • Date: 28th April 2020
  • Presenter: Andrew Pinchen
  • Company: Penspen
  • Title of presentation: Uprating an onshore liquid pipeline system
  • Synopsis: Global demand for liquid fuels has risen over the last 10 years, and is forecast to continue rising in 2021 and beyond. Uprating of an existing pipeline is one option that may be able to provide the required increase at a much lower cost than a new pipeline, but is not with-out its own risks and challenges. This webinar will provide a high level overview of uprating, the challenges and risks involved, and the solutions used by Penspen to support uprating projects around the world.

  • Day 3

  • Date: 29th April 2020
  • Presenter: Andrew Woodward
  • Company: Connector Subsea Solutions
  • Title of presentation: Specialist Subsea Structural Repair Clamp – A Case Study
  • Synopsis: A brief overview of CSS pipeline clamps followed by a case study. A major north sea operator had a problem with a conductor severed within the guide area. A previous repair attempt had only partially addressed the issue and CSS were asked to provide a complete, permanent solution. Based on the restricted space between the conductor and the guide CSS designed a unique slimline clamp solution with no bolting within the guide area. CSS also provided centralisers and novel installation aids to complete the repair.
