A two day workshop providing an in-depth overview of the various aspects of pipeline modification and repair (full encirclement sleeves, hot taps etc) and to address the concerns associated with welding of in-service pipelines.

A thorough understanding of the factors that affect welding onto in-service pipelines helps avoid pipeline shutdowns and interruptions of service, thereby bolstering both economic and environmental benefits for operators and welders alike. Plus, repairs can be undertaken efficiently, effectively and with full confidence

The course includes a review and critical analysis of available thermal analysis models, including the original Battelle model, the heat sink capacity method and the PRCI thermal model for Hot Tap Welding.
