Description

 

With the continual emergence of new shale plays across the US, crude production has continued to soar and crude takeaway capacity with it.   More than 18,000 miles of liquid petroleum pipelines now traverse the United States.   As Pipeline operators continue to build more and more assets to handle the increasing volumes of crude needed to be taken to market, it has become imperative to maintain the highest level of pipeline integrity to eliminate the risk of hazardous leaks and avoid the enormous costs associated with repairing and operating these vast networks of crude pipelines and aging infrastructure.   In the past, a lot of emphasis has been placed on corrosion in isolation. However, as pipeline infrastructure continues to grow at this rapid pace, what is needed now more than ever is an integrated approach to asset integrity.   Operator's need to develop a comprehensive pipeline integrity strategy, from start to finish, to time-and-cost-effectively identify, assess and mitigate corrosive damages to the pipe.   Encompassing not just the corrosion control aspect of it but the inspection drive, chemical treatment plans, facility management, repair methodologies, coating selection and AC mitigation.   With the emergence of several new technologies for pipeline maintenance, there has not been enough information sharing between pipeline operators to date, on what has been the most effective in managing corrosion and preserving the life and safety of a pipeline. So for the first time, leading pipeline operators will be gathering at the upcoming Crude Pipeline Asset Integrity Congress 2014 to deliver detailed case studies on best practices for:

  • PIPELINE ASSESSMENT
  • PIPELINE TREATMENT
  • AC CORROSION
  • FACILITY INTEGRITY MANAGEMENT
  • COATING TECHNIQUES
  • PIPELINE REPAIR TECHNOLOGIES
  • DATA ANALYSIS & INTEGRATION
