An SGA/T.D. Williamson/Kiefner & Associates/PRCI workshop
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.
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: Overview of ILI technologies; Field operations; Geometry ILI tools; Magnetic Flux Leakage ILI tools for metal loss; Applicable standards.
This 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.
Who Should Attend
Operations and maintenance engineers and senior technicians responsible for in-line inspections using intelligent pigs.
What Other Attendees Have Said About This Workshop
I have already recommended workshop to co-workers.
I thought the class was great. All aspects were covered well. The field demonstrations were great.
I've been to several of these training courses and I really enjoyed the practical application parts of this course.
Great job overall. It was a very informative workshop. Certainly, learned more than I expected. Thanks.
At the completion of this workshop the student will be able to:
Select the appropriate intelligent pig(s) for the potential defects in a pipeline
Develop and manage the field operations plan in an inspection project
The principles of design and operation of key systems and parts of an intelligent pig: sensors; signal processing; storage; power source; markers
The defects that intelligent pigs currently do not detect or size well
The range of sensing technologies currently applied in intelligent pigs
How to minimize the probability of a pig being damaged or getting stuck in a pipeline
What to expect of pipeline inspection vendors
The importance of disclosing pipeline configuration information to the vendor
The history of evolution of intelligent pigging technology
The significance of having a clean pipeline to achieve good inspections results. How clean does it have to be? How can you tell if it’s sufficiently clean?
How to demonstrate that any bore restrictions in the pipeline are within the capability of the pig to pass
Will know where to find out about:
Intelligent pigs that are available on the market
Regulatory requirements and standards regarding the use of intelligent pigs
Prior Knowledge Recommendations:
Basic pipeline operations
Basic NDT understanding
