Independent subsea engineering and training company Jee will draw on its extensive pigging experience to host a webinar exploring the topic in March.
Senior subsea engineer Paul Otway will present the webinar, focusing on ‘Best Practice for Management of Pipeline Integrity by Pigging in Complex Environments’. It will take place globally on 13 March.
Mr Otway said: "Pipeline integrity is extremely important in offshore projects and becomes increasingly critical as assets age. To detect corrosion and improve the corrosion management systems to extend the lifespan of these pipelines, pigging is crucial, and choosing the right technology can save operators valuable time and money."
Pipeline corrosion can have serious health and safety, environmental and operational effects, therefore it is imperative that offshore operators constantly monitor corrosion to determine the condition of pipelines. In-line inspection (ILI) pigging is a key tool in identifying the efficacy of pipeline management and the information provided can add years to the life of an ageing asset.
Designed to give an overview of ILI and its benefits, the webinar will examine how pipelines are pigged and discuss best practice in selection of appropriate methodologies for pipeline inspection.
Mr Otway continued: "At Jee, we have invaluable experience in pigging operations and I look forward to conveying some of our knowledge during this webinar, where I will talk participants through the advantages and disadvantages of specific technologies as well as design aspects of piggable pipeline systems."
Jee has global experience in a range of pigging operations, including complex scenarios in deep water, multi-diameter lines and FPSO vessels. Mr Otway was recognised for his work on ILI projects when he won the Subsea UK award in the category of Young Emerging Talent in 2013.
