An SGA/DNV GL/Kiefner & Associates/ROSEN/PRCI workshop
Dublin (Columbus), OH
May 16-18, 2017
PRCI is excited to partner with SGA on these important In-line Inspection Workshops. These workshops are ideal for developing the knowledge needed to ensure safe operations of our oil & gas pipeline infrastructure.
PRCI members can register for the same price as SGA members using the PRCI PROMO CODE obtainable from PRCI. Registration may be done either on-line or by calling SGA Member Services (972) 620-4012.
Registrations are limited to 30 people to optimize interaction between instructors and attendees.
This workshop provides operations and maintenance engineers in pipeline companies with the knowledge to establish and manage an ILI program that contributes optimum value toward improved pipeline integrity. It focuses on: Cracking; Crack ILI tools; Mapping tools; Data analysis
The SGA Practical ILI Workshop workshop or equivalent experience is a prerequisite for the SGA Advanced ILI workshop. The content of the Practical ILI workshop will not be repeated in the Advanced ILI workshop.
