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.

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.
