An online conference for Everybody in the Midstream Pipeline Industry
20 years ago the incidence of stress corrosion cracking (SCC) and fatigue cracking was unusual, confined to some pipeline systems in North America and a very few others around the world. Today the picture is very different and with its global network of inspection services ROSEN Group is helping more and more pipeline operators face up to the challenge of managing pipelines with both SCC and fatigue cracking. Cracking is hard to deal with:
Recognising these challenges and realising that the industry needed to do more to tackle this threat to ensure safe energy supplies for the future, ROSEN Group initiated the crack management framework, based on its experience working with multiple operators, as a means of facilitating collaborative approaches. The objective was to ensure that all parties, including the operator, service providers and regulator, have a clear understanding of what needs to be done, and who is doing it, when faced with cracking in pipelines.
This presentation will explore how, working with different pipeline operators, ROSEN Group have used the crack management framework approach to assist communication and understanding between operator and service provider, thereby collaboratively developing appropriate safe and effective management plans for both SCC and fatigue cracking threats.
