Hot and Cold – Assuring Fit for Purpose Joints – Welded and Non-Welded Connections
Good Practice, Qualification, Assurance and Testing
Organised jointly by:
With the ageing Oil and Gas infrastructure in the North Sea, and the desire to maintain up-time whilst paying the highest regard to both safety and cost, both welded and non-welded joints are now fundamental to the integrity management of pressurised equipment.
The aim of this conference is to share knowledge and experiences of different types of hot and cold connections including what to look out for to equip engineers working at all levels to be able to ensure joints are fit for purpose. We will address the pitfalls and provide tips and important things to watch out for upfront during installation and throughout the life of the joint.
We are looking for abstracts that cover:
- Case histories – including learnings from other industries and perhaps where things have not gone to plan
- Assessment and justification for design life of mechanical connectors.
- Justification of mechanical connectors over welded solutions using ALARP principles.
- Inventive NDT methods to improve productivity of weld testing
- Design, installation and lifecycle management of standardised and bespoke connections
- Management of legacy/equipment after change of ownership
- Assessing material suitability for Change of use of equipment from hydrocarbon to CO2 transport
Abstracts Are Now Open – Details Here
This conference, jointly organised by SPE Aberdeen and IMechE will provide a forum for discussing the issues with subject matter experts, leaving you with ideas to consider and workable solutions.
If you have experiences or case histories to share, then we invite you to submit a short 200 word abstract for formal 20 minute presentations or a 200 word abstract for the five minute ‘Techbyte’ sessions, which are more sales-oriented presentations.
To submit your abstract – Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01224 646311.
