Application course


About the course

Designed to enhance technical knowledge of integrity management issues, this application course helps engineers understand the more complex issues affecting pipelines and risers.

Consisting of numerous case studies of pipeline failures, learners will review root causes and how lessons learned can be applied to their pipelines. Learners will also learn how to incorporate integrity into all phases of offshore pipeline projects, reducing operating costs and the risk of pipeline failure.
