PIPELINE REPAIR, HOT TAPPING & IN-SERVICE WELDING
TWO DAY COURSE
Due to unforeseen circumstances, the March 2024 course has been postponed. New dates will be advised as soon as possible. For further details, please contact Danielle Pennington on firstname.lastname@example.org
Avoid Shutdowns & Service Interruptions. Realise Economic & Environmental Benefits.
Facilitated by US expert, William A Bruce, the objective of this course is to provide an in-depth overview of the various aspects of pipeline modification and repair (full encirclement sleeves, hot taps and so on) and to address the concerns associated with welding onto in-service pipelines.
A thorough understanding of the factors that affect welding onto in-service pipelines helps avoid pipeline shutdowns and interruptions of service, thereby bolstering both economic and environmental benefits for operators and welders alike. Plus, repairs can be undertaken efficiently, effectively and with full confidence.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Pipeline engineers, designers, operators and service professionals who are involved with the maintenance, design, inspection and repair of oil and gas pipelines.
