Event Details

The goal of this workshop is to provide a broad overview of the effectiveness of the primary pipeline integrity assessment methods: in-line inspection, hydrostatic testing, and direct assessment. We end with a discussion of pipeline repairs and establishing reassessment intervals, providing a look at the full cycle of the integrity management process.

The first day lays the groundwork for later discussions and focuses on:

  • Pipeline defects (manufacturing, transportation, construction, and operating related defects)
  • Defect assessment methods
    • ASME B31G, Modified B31G, and Effective Area for blunt defects
    • Ln-Secant equation for planar defects and cracks
    • Pipe properties (strength and toughness and implications for fracture initiation and propagation)
  • We will also work through a hands-on group exercise to assess simulated corrosion flaws.

The second day focuses on the integrity assessment methods and their advantages and disadvantages.

  • Hydrostatic testing is the oldest and most established method of the assessment methods and is well understood
  • In-line inspection is a newer technology and one that is rapidly evolving
  • We will discuss the various methods for pipeline repair and limitations noted in liquid and gas safety codes and end with a discussion about establishing reassessment intervals.

The third day is dedicated to demonstrations at the Applus+ RTD Houston Facility.
