The Pipeline Defects Clinic (including corrosion mechanisms and control)

This course examines how the manufacturing and corrosion defects identified by intelligent pigging may arise, and how they may develop.

This course examines how the manufacturing and corrosion defects identified by intelligent pigging may arise, and how they may develop. With a solid understanding of the ways in which these defects originate, course participants will be better equipped to characterize and prioritize them in review and analysis of inspection reports, and to minimize defects in the fabrication process. The course is a “linking” course between the Pigging & ILI course and the Pipeline Defect Assessment course. 

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: 

  • Engineers
  • Designers
  • Service professionals and pipe manufacturers who are involved with pipeline fabrication, inspection, and fitness-for-service assessments 
  • ILI data specialists
  • Corrosion and materials specialists

DOCUMENTATION

All participants will receive a detailed set of lecture notes (400pp approx.) in ring binder format.

CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS

On completion of the course, participants will be eligible to receive 3.0 Continuing Education Units (CEU’s).
