Increased focus on asset integrity management and process safety and recent highly publicised major accidents demonstrates that the oil/gas industry remains vulnerable with the consequential damage of some accidents matching, if not exceeding, the worst predicted scenarios.
On the other hand, the business drivers and prospects for the oil/gas industry remain solid which dictates extending safe operating life of existing aged facilities and developing new facilities through projects faced with handling more corrosive streams and challenging operating conditions.
This workshop will gather practitioners from companies involved in asset integrity management/process safety in the oil/gas industry including operators, engineering consultants, construction contractors, services providers, certifying agencies and will create for them an interactive environment to discuss lessons learnt from their previous experiences and share their views on how the industry in general and asset integrity management in particular, should evolve to meet future integrity related challenges.
The workshop topics will cover:
The workshop is mainly addressed to oil and gas professionals, involved in various disciplines such as facilities integrity management, corrosion prevention, materials selection, project management or risk assessment related to drilling, engineering, construction, production, maintenance, inspection or decommissioning activities.
Two (2) days of informal discussions prompted by selected keynote presentations and discussions. Workshops maximise the exchange of ideas among attendees and presenters through brief technical presentations followed by extended Q&A periods. Focused topics attract an informed audience eager to discuss issues critical to advancing both technology and best practices. The majority of the presentations are in the form of case studies, highlighting engineering achievements and lessons learned. In order to stimulate frank discussion, no proceedings are published and the press is not invited to attend.
The Steering Committee encourages registrations from professionals who are able to prepare and present a poster on a relevant project. For further details, contact Norvie Tungcul, event manager at email@example.com. Posters will be judged and the best poster will be awarded by the workshop steering committee.
Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. The Steering Committee encourages attendance from those who can contribute to the workshop most effectively either in discussions or with posters. A mix of attendees in terms of geographic origin, companies and disciplines will be encouraged.
In keeping with ATW objectives and the SPE mission, excessive commercialism in posters or presentations will not be permitted. Company logos must be limited to the title slide and used only to indicate the affiliation of the presenter and others involved in the work.
All attendees will receive an attendance certificate attesting to their participation at the workshop. This certificate will be provided in exchange for a completed Workshop Attendee Survey.
Attendees at this workshop qualify for SPE Continuing Education Units (CEU) at the rate of 0.1 CEU per hour of the workshop.
