Operations & Engineering Support

Several high profile events (and numerous smaller events) have increased the pressure on operators to analyze corrosion trends and safe operating pressures. Often locating, organizing, classifying and indexing the data becomes a critical path challenge for the engineer’s RBI and risk algorithm tools which depend on large amounts of high quality data as an input. Operational options to finding this data include performing field work to validate integrity of metal, seams, corrosion rates and the like and resorting to more “pigs and digs”.
