PRCI forms Subsea Technical Committee

The Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) has formed a technical committee to solve challenges faced by subsea pipeline operators.

The newly formed Subsea Technical Committee will focus on issues related to the design, construction and integrity management of risers, flowlines and umbilicals.

Though some PRCI research includes projects with an offshore focus, having its own dedicated committee will allow offshore subject matter experts to better develop and fund research projects addressing concerns of offshore asset operators.

At its first meeting, the leadership team was confirmed; ExxonMobil’s Jamey Fenske will be Chair, with Vice-Chair support from Total’s Ludovic Assier and Chevron’s Farzan Parsinejad.

“The addition of the Subsea Technical Committee will enable PRCI to more fully support our members as the industry sees a continued growth in offshore oil and gas,” said PRCI President Cliff Johnson.

“We are excited by the leadership of ExxonMobil, Total, and Chevron in bringing this important area into PRCI.”

With the creation of the Subsea Technical Committee, PRCI now has eight specific areas of research that include: compressor and pump station; corrosion; design, materials and construction; integrity and inspection; measurement; surveillance, operations and monitoring; and underground storage.
