Face the future: Corrosion growth analysis, from data to action
Corrosion is a time-dependent threat, meaning it can worsen or spread as the years go by, increasing the risk to integrity. Knowing the current rate of corrosion growth in your pipelines is a little like looking into the future: It provides insight into what your pipeline’s condition will be in one, five, or even 10 years from now. That enables better planning and resource allocation, now and down the road.
In this webinar, experts from global pipeline solutions provider T.D. Williamson (TDW) will help you understand:
- How future integrity assessments differ from immediate and advanced integrity assessments.
- The data collection process and the factors that comprise corrosion growth assessment.
- How comparing the signals from the same defect collected in successive in-line inspection runs can determine corrosion growth.
- How to recognise statistically significant changes from one run to the next.
- What significant corrosion growth looks like – as seen bv the data analyst.
- Why it is important to get the corrosion growth rate right.
- Why determining corrosion growth relies on magnetic flux leakage (MFL) to identify the axial and circumferential location of corrosion anomalies and their severity.
- How the TDW multiple dataset platform, which combines several in-line inspection technologies for enhanced data in a single run, is the best form of MFL.
- How an efficient repair plan is created.
The webinar also incorporates two case studies that illustrate threat identification.
By the end of the webinar, you will recognise how determining corrosion growth rates can help you manage integrity activities and develop actions to slow or negate the growth.
