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.

Increase The Cyber-Protection of Your Oil and Gas Pipeline Operational Assets
29 September 2021

Sponsor: Honeywell

Oil and gas pipelines and terminals are increasingly targeted for cyber attacks. Breaches affecting operational assets can have potentially serious safety, environmental or economic impact. An effective operational technology (OT) cybersecurity strategy needs to be put in place to mitigate the threats.

Join the discussion between the Global Marketing Director for Oil and Gas and Senior Offering Manager in Cybersecurity to learn more about:

  • Challenges faced by the pipelines and terminals sector
  • What peers are doing to improve cyber resilience
  • Strategies to consider for a cybersecurity program
  • Technologies for efficient cyber operations

Pipeline Emissions and Cybersecurity - Are you ready for the future?
14 September 2021

Sponsor:  Siemens Energy

2021 has been a challenging year for pipelines. Heightened focus on their environmental impact and a major cyber-attack have led to changing regulations that require operator investment. However, the pressure to reduce costs and increase efficiency remains.

Join Scott Tackett and Sam Miorelli from Siemens Energy as they discuss how developments in rotating equipment and digitalization can reduce emissions and lifecycle costs and improve asset security now and in the future.

Specific topics will include:

· Advances in compressor and gas turbine technologies that optimize costs and reduce methane emissions

· State-of-the-art solutions available to protect pipeline assets against cyber-attack

· Best practices for meeting ever-changing government regulations

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.

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.
