How Pipeline Operators are Planning to Evolve Their SCADA Platforms Through 2030
14 December 2021

Sponsor: Emerson

Join us as we unpack the results of our recent supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system survey and learn which steps oil and gas pipeline operators are taking to protect their systems and critical data long term. This Emerson-sponsored survey addresses a range of topics, including cybersecurity, systems integration, user experience, situational awareness, and data warehousing.

There is significant upside to implementing an integrated SCADA platform, but this integration may extend beyond what you are familiar with today. We will discuss how to securely drive optimization enterprise wide by cohesively managing data in a single SCADA platform, from operations to commercial requirements.

This webinar is highly recommended to anyone who plays a role in, or is responsible for, specifying a SCADA platform. You will get expert insight on the most important considerations to keep in mind along with advice on how integrate advanced applications to maximize your return on investment.

API RP 1173 – Pipeline SMS Assessments: Overview and Implementation
28 October 2021

Sponsor: American Petroleum Institute

API Recommended Practice (RP) 1173, Pipeline Safety Management Systems, allows companies to take a principled and performance-based approach to managing complex pipeline operations. Implementing a Pipeline SMS (PSMS) using API RP 1173 improves pipeline safety performance and ultimately moves the industry closer to our shared goal of zero pipeline incidents.

The API PSMS Third-Party Assessment Program, based on API RP 1173, was created as a consistent, out-of-the-box solution to satisfy PSMS assessment requirements. It uses the industry approved tools and maturity model, coupled with real-time benchmarking. During this webinar, Colin Frazier, Senior Manager at API, will give an overview of the API Third-Party PSMS Assessment Program. Dwight Johnston, an experienced API PSMS assessor, will follow to discuss key implementation barriers seen during assessments, highlighting key sections of RP 1173 that warrant additional consideration. Questions will be taken at the end of the presentation.
