Measuring Contaminants in Natural Gas & Biogas Processes and why it is Important
27 July 2021

Sponsor: Endress+Hauser

In the ever-evolving world of Natural Gas, one thing stays constant: the presence of contaminants and their need for removal. Contaminants such as H2S, H2O, CO2, and O2 are regularly measured in different points in the Natural Gas pipeline and ideally removed prior to reaching residential homes, businesses, and the overall distribution to local and national Natural Gas pipeline network. Biogas is part of a US and worldwide green initiative that yields Biomethane. Often, biomethane is mixed into a Natural Gas pipeline and distributed for use. In this Webcast, we will cover why contaminants are being removed, where they are being removed, and the allowable quantity of each contaminant that is acceptable in the Natural Gas pipelines. Additionally, we will go into detail on types of technologies that are proven in verifying the presence of contaminants and the actions that are taken when they are present above the safety threshold.

Ultra-High-Resolution: A Systematic Approach to Ensuring Quality ILI Data
22 July 2021

Sponsor: ENTEGRA

Mark Olson and Rick Desaulnier provide an in-depth look at how a system of Ultra-High-Resolution (UHR) tools, backed by experienced and talented Data Analysts, can better detect, identify, classify and size even the most complex corrosion. Explore how ENTEGRA®, its UHR tech platform, CPCM and its global support team are achieving such high first-run success rates while increasing throughput, reducing operator costs, managing risk and delivering a proven ROI. Pits in pits. Pinholes. Hardspots. Corrosion on puddle-welded pipe. Seamweld assessment. Learn how our UHR system can help operators tackle corrosion that was previously considered undetectable. The bottom line: join team ENTEGRA as we illustrate how an investment in ILI can pay huge dividends for you and your operation.

In-line Pipeline Isolation as an Alternative to Line Stopping
16 June 2021

Sponsor: STATS Group

This webcast will introduce piggable in-line isolation tools for double block and monitor pipeline isolation of onshore and offshore pipelines. Unlike traditional Line Stopping activities, piggable isolation tools require no welding or cutting into live lines, leaving no residual fittings or hardware on the pipeline. This webcast will describe high integrity isolation methods that enable piggable pipeline systems to be safely isolated to double block and monitor isolation requirements. Real world examples will be presented to help pipeline owners and operators understand the benefits of this approach for their pipeline integrity and maintenance projects. The session will explain how the piggable tool is tracked, positioned and monitored while in the pipeline, before discussing the hydraulic activation of the locks and seals, including seal testing and verification.

Open Secure Remote Operations and Custody Transfer
26 May 2021

Sponsor: Bedrock Automation

The Covid pandemic interrupted delivery of many of the benefits that IIoT and digitalization promised for midstream and upstream oil and gas. Now as many are getting back to work, they are finding that the efficiency, flexibility and security for which they had been planning is more important than ever — for both recovery and profitable operation. This webinar presents an architecture that will help make sense of digitalization, illustrated by examples of how it can be applied for both remote operations management and custody transfer.


  • Learn why midstream and upstream automation must be both open and secure
  • Learn how open secure remote monitoring can improve upstream operating efficiency by more than 50 percent
  • Learn how open secure flow computing can reduce custody transfer lifecycle costs and protect revenue
  • Learn how to leverage zero-trust public networks for near zero-cost access to automation for operation and maintenance purposes

Real Stories to help you prepare for API Pipeline SMS Third-Party Assessment Program
12 May 2021

Sponsor: Avetta

As part of the industry's ongoing commitment to continuous pipeline safety improvement, API developed a not-for-profit Pipeline SMS Assessment Program in collaboration with industry partners. During this live webinar, API will discuss their Pipeline SMS Third-Party Assessment Program, the assessment program's uniqueness by utilizing a diverse set of assessors with multiple affiliations and discuss 2021 and beyond.  

Additionally, Southwest Gas Corporation will share how they have successfully broken barriers by implementing a Champions network at both an executive and cross-functional employee level to drive continual improvement and contractors' engagement through workshops and summit meetings to encourage PSMS adoption performance of their PSMS gap analysis. Southwest Gas will also discuss how they incorporated system improvement enhancements through a corrective action program and a virtual peer review (assessment) of a select PSMS essential element.  Finally, they will share advances made in Stakeholder Engagement through various communication channels.

Throughput optimization for pipelines and gas plants
1 April 2021

Sponsor: Rockwell Automation

Many processes within oil and gas pipelines and processing plants depend on maintaining specific temperatures and pressures at which the process fluids are liquids or gases.  In addition, anytime water is a component in the process fluid hydrates can form and plug piping and vessels.  Learn how Sensia’s Throughput optimization solution allows operators, and control systems to “see inside” the process in real time to understand where the facility is operating with respect to critical physical constants, including the phase envelope and hydrate temperature.  This insight allows for more stable operation, reduced energy expenditure and associated emissions, and greater facility throughput. Case studies will include controlling methanol injection, managing heaters, virtual sensors for sulfur recovery units and more.
