What Should I Know About Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion?

Course Description
Basics of MIC: Why is this an important corrosion threat to consider?

  • Where it is found; internal and external corrosion of pipelines
  • Why it occurs; the role of microorganisms
  • Integrity concerns: Unpredictable and high localized corrosion rates
How to Identify the Threat of MIC
  • Four types of information needed to assess the potential for MIC
  • Tools and methods used to collect the information
  • Factors that promote the occurrence of MIC
Tools and Strategies for Managing MIC
  • The main methods of pipeline corrosion mitigation: cleaning/pigging, chemical treatment, materials and design
  • How to apply mitigation and monitor the effectiveness
  • Common mistakes to avoid

What You Need to Know About In-Service Welding – Design Implementation, Inspection & Testing, Regulation and Compliance For Engineers, Managers, Supervisors and Construction Personnel

Performing welding operations onto operating pipelines for maintenance purposes or to attach branch connections is very dangerous. These operations require proper procedures, welder qualifications, and must address safety issues successfully. Published documentation and recommended practices and procedures regarding in-service welding, commonly referred to as hot-tapping or hot-tap welding, are continually being updated and pipeline engineers are constantly faced with problem-solving in this arena. Day 1: time 8:30 –  3 p.m. CDT Day 2: time 8:30 – 3 p.m. CDT Half-hour lunch break each day Course Description This training will address in-service welding onto gas and liquid pipelines under both typical and non-typical conditions. It describes the concerns, design implementation, inspection and testing of in-service welds with particular emphasis on regulation/compliance review, recommended practices and case studies. In addition to the lecture portion, the course is designed to enable participants to successfully run PRCI Thermal Analysis Model for Hot Tap® Welding software and interpret the results. The first portion of the course provides participants with an understanding of the factors that contribute to burn-through or cracking. Participants will also learn the highlights of various technical resources that supplement the PRCI Thermal Analysis Model for Hot Tap® Welding program to provide a more comprehensive body of technical information pertaining to welding onto operating pipelines. Provided 12 PDHs available with Certificate of Completion Course notes Price $700

Pressure Test Planning

Introduction This course is designed to provide project managers and inspectors an introduction to pressure testing pipelines and facilities.  It will cover what is required by regulations, what will be required of them, and what they should expect from the testing contractor.  The course covers the planning of a pressure test all the way through to the records needed to be retained.  Both 49 CFR 192 and 195 requirements are covered.  Practical guidance is provided to the attendees for them to use in determining the acceptability of a pressure test.  Attendees will also be exposed to safety considerations for pressure testing and additional precautions should the test medium not be liquid. The class will provide the attendee’s confidence to plan and oversee the performance of pressure testing and ensure they will meet all regulatory requirements. Provided Course notes  Certificate of Completion awarding 3 PDHs Price $400

Introduction to Pipeline Steels: Metallurgy, Manufacturing, Standards, and Specifications

This webinar will introduce attendees to the topic of pipeline metallurgy and how manufacturing, standards, and specifications influence pipeline mechanical properties, weldability, and long-term integrity.  The webinar starts with a description of how pipelines fail since the failure modes influence what metallurgical measures are taken to minimize susceptibility to those failures.  The major types of pipe and fitting manufacturing processes, and common flaws associated with them will be reviewed, including a discussion of obsolete types of pipe that are still in service, including pipes with lap seams, furnace butt weld seams, and flash weld seams. The review will include a brief summary of some historical practices that influence current pipeline characteristics.  Attendees will learn the significance of yield strength, ultimate tensile strength, hardness, toughness, and composition and how those attributes are specified and measured, including how test procedures can influence results.  Attendees will also be introduced to the topic of pipeline welding since welding can have a significant impact on pipe properties and susceptibility to various forms of in-service degradation. Breaks: A 30-minute lunch break at 11:30 a.m. CDT Provided Course Notes Certificate of completion awarding 6.5 PDHs Price $600
