Length: 1 days
This two-day MasterClass provides the requirements for improving the integrity of gas pipelines using ASME B31.8S, which is the most widely used Code for pipeline integrity management. The course focuses on Table 7.1-1 in ASME B31.8S Code, and how it should be used to create a program that more than meets the minimum requirements of US and other regulations. Table 7.1-1 lists all 22 threats to pipelines and provides two pages of various technologies and proven solutions to address each one.
This course explains how to develop and execute an IMP using both of the ASME B31.8 and B31.8S Codes, as well as other relevant standards. It discusses the best practices for use in system design, operations for and maintaining integrity, and discusses the appropriate technologies for pipeline repairs. It provides details and examples of alternatives, as well as alternate preventive and mitigation measures.
Complementing the ASME B31.8 code, this course covers the design, operation, maintenance, and repair of natural gas distribution and transmission pipelines and ASME B31.8S, which covers Integrity Management.
You Will Learn To
- Explain the many prevention and detection practices to ensure pipeline safety
- Describe how the use of certain prevention and detection practices from the ASME B31.8S Standard, as well as 49CFR192 regulations, interact for improved performance and ensure maximum safety
- Specify prevention and repair solutions for each threat and improve the IMP performance for gas pipelines
- Explain the reasons why one prevention and repair solution may be better than another; or why both together can be even more effective
