The Pigging Products and Services Association (PPSA) and the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) hosted an inline inspection (ILI) pull through demonstration for young pipeline professionals in Houston, Texas.
The demonstration was hosted at the PRCI Technological Development Center in Houston, Texas, attracting more than 65 young pipeline professionals, including some attendees from the Young Pipeline Professionals (USA).
Attendees were given a tour of the test loop facility and, after an overview of T.D. Williamson’s (TDW) multiple dataset (MDS) platform, were able to watch a live demonstration of the ILI tool being used on a 12 inch (305 mm) diameter pipeline.
TDW Principle Engineer Adrian Belanger showed the group how to analyse and interpret the data, before the young pipeliners had the opportunity to ask questions about the inspection data analysis.
At an informal barbeque held during the demonstration day, PPSA members networked with the pipeliners and offered their expertise and general advice about the pigging industry.
The event was organised by TDW Product Line Director – Global Pipeline Integrity Chuck Harris and supported by PPSA member companies and PRCI.
Exhibitors at the demonstration – which is part of PPSA’s commitment to encouraging more young people to get involved in the pigging industry – included Enduro Pipeline Services, Entegra, Halfwave AS, Halliburton, Inline Services, Rosen Group and TDW.
