Pipeline Safety Management Systems (SMS): Contractor Safety Programs Integration
11 May 2023

Sponsored by: American Petroleum Institute (API)

In November 2022, API and the joint Pipeline SMS Industry Team published Pipeline SMS: A Contractor’s Guide to give pipeline contractors and service providers an enhanced understanding of how the scope of their safety programs should be integrated with an operator’s Pipeline SMS. A tool has been created with industry collaboration showcasing 56 key requirements of API RP 1173: Pipeline Safety Management Systems, that will help operators and contractors integrate their safety efforts. In this webinar, industry will show how the newly developed tool will help contractors and service providers mature internal safety programs that support Pipeline SMS. The tool is scalable based on the size of the organization and the scope of work and can be a valuable tool in starting the PSMS journey. In addition to reviewing the tool, the webinar will highlight good practices seen from a pipeline operator and a service company on the value gained from integration of their safety programs.

Grab Sampling – Liquid Sampling Valve Basics
1 November 2022

Sponsored By: Swagelok

 Every day, grab (or spot) sampling systems allow oil, gas, and chemical companies around the world to simply and accurately determine the quality and composition of the fluids they process. In many cases, however, opportunities remain to improve the ease-of-use, safety, and maintenance requirements of these system by rethinking aspects of their design. In the case of panels that draw liquid samples into laboratory bottles, changes to valve assembly designs, specifically, can yield benefits for operators and maintenance personnel. In this webinar, learn about what it takes to conduct effective liquid sampling, how aspects of valve assembly design affect system efficacy and lifecycle costs, and what options exist to optimize your grab sampling processes. Expect to walk away better equipped to operate leak-tight, accurate, simple-to-maintain systems.

Reducing methane emissions during pipeline repair and maintenance
5 October 2022

Sponsor: STATS Group 

 Pipeline operators face challenges associated with eliminating methane emissions during intervention activities such as hot tapping and line isolation for mainline replacement and facility upgrades. This webinar will provide an understanding of how STATS BISEP® double block and bleed isolation technology, can be used to achieve a leak-tight and emission-less isolation. This approach allows operators to complete critical maintenance and repair activities safely without the need to flare or vent methane into the atmosphere.

A case study will be discussed highlighting the use of the BISEP and how it helped an operator to reduce methane emissions on a natural gas pipeline project and support the client to achieve their methane emissions reduction goal.

Natural Gas Measurement with Ultrasonic Clamp-on meters
14 September 2022

Sponsor: Flexim

Clamp-on meters have been around for over 40 years. As a result of improvements in the technology, the last 15 years have seen clamp-on meters working on a full range of gas applications. Many non-fiscal applications that were done by orifice, turbine, and ultrasonic spool meters are being done by clamp-on meters. These meters are cost effective, easy to install, and are proving to be very reliable and accurate. Flexim will give an overview of the technology, show laboratory & field results, and a range of applications where clamp-on meters are being applied.
