Pipeline Technology Seminars
Pipeline life-cycle extension strategies
Get a deeper insight into the success story of decades of failure-free and economic pipeline operation
Main focus topics will be:
- The pipeline life-cycle
- Pipeline integrity management systems
- Leak detection
- In-line inspection
- Repair works
- Stations & Components
- Pipeline safety
The course director Heinz Watzka will lead you through the seminar and will share his experience from managing oil and gas pipeline operators in Germany/Europe. He will be supported by different technical experts who will provide a deeper insight into state-of-the-art technologies in operation and new developments in the international pipeline market.
The seminar starts with an overview on the managerial and technical life-cycle of a pipeline system from the very beginning to the final daily operational works taking into account the fact that some German high-pressure pipeline are now operated for more than 100 years. The following lectures provide details about state-of-the-art internal and external leak detection technologies and other specific pipeline safety measures.
The aim is to give the participants a comprehensive overview on different inline inspection technolgies and well-approved solutions for the comprehensive storage, assessment and analysis of relevant data in a PIMS. The seminar closes with an overview about different repair measures taking into account both safety and economic aspects.
