End expansion

We are delighted to announce the final of our three instructional webinars relating to design of subsea pipelines. Here we look at end expansion. The considerations for designing pipelines to accommodate expansions arising from combined thermal, pressure and Poisson’s ratio effects are introduced. Learning outcomes include: Understand stress behaviour of axially restrained and unrestrained pipelines …

Materials Specification

Our second of three, free training Design webinars explores the materials specification that need to be factored into any design of pipeline. During this webinar, your host Dem Demetriou, will look at the material selection, the properties associated with those materials and the line pipe technical standards. By the end of this webinar: You will …

Pipeline lifetime extension

Ageing subsea infrastructure in the oil and gas industry is a concern around the world. Operators must demonstrate that they are not exposing society to a greater risk through continued operation as pipeline systems that convey their products are operating close to or even past their design lives. An extension to the operating life of …

Pipeline routing

Before committing to a pipeline design, the route along the seabed it will take has to be considered. During this webinar, the first of three dealing with topics relating to Design, your host Dem Demetriou, will detail the different areas that are studied even before a design can be put to paper.  Learning outcomes; – …

Effective integrity management of subsea pipelines during asset transition

Over the long history of the North Sea many assets have changed ownership and/or operatorship. This brings with it a host of challenges, from effective continuity of data management, different approaches to integrity management and potentially interrupted operation. Pipelines that were designed for one application may now be required to adapt to a new operation …

Development of a cable integrity management system (CIMS)

Avoiding down time due to repairs With the power generation capacity of offshore wind farms increasing exponentially over the past 20 years, subsea power cables have also increased in number to accommodate the transmission of this increasing supply. These cables are being installed in ever increasingly harsh environments and are susceptible to failure when their …

Managing operational integrity of subsea cables in the renewable energy industry

Subsea cables are the Achilles heel of the offshore renewables industry. They are often not given enough consideration during the project design stage and as a result they can present problems during operation that are costly to rectify. Such problems may include fatigue and over-bending from scenarios such as spanning from a bell-mouth, cable exposure …
