Jee to Highlight Pipeline Integrity at Subsea Expo

Jee Limited’s Paul Otway, winner of Subsea UK Young Emerging Talent award 2013, discusses best practice for the management of pipeline integrity by pigging at Subsea Expo 2015.

Otway, a senior engineer at independent subsea engineering and training company Jee Ltd, will draw on his extensive pigging experience to present to an audience of industry professionals at the conference at Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre on 12 February.

Throughout his career, Otway has worked on subsea pipeline design and integrity projects for a range of global operators, with a strong focus on the management of pipeline in-line inspection (ILI) campaigns, having won the Subsea UK Young Emerging Talent award specifically for his ILI work.

Discussing the industry topic, Otway said: “Pipeline integrity is extremely important in offshore projects, particularly as assets age. Corrosion of oil and gas pipelines can result in serious environmental, health and safety hazards if the integrity of a pipeline or riser system is compromised, making it essential that offshore operators constantly monitor corrosion to determine the condition of pipelines.

“ILI pigging is a key tool in identifying the effectiveness of pipeline management. In mature oil and gas regions, such as the North Sea, ILI is becoming increasingly important in verifying the status of ageing pipelines and allowing operational lives to be extended, while in newer regions with more corrosive fluids, it allows operators to assess the efficacy of their pipeline management systems.”

Otway’s presentation will highlight the many purposes of pipeline pigging with particular focus on pipeline in-line inspection during operation, outlining the different threats to pipelines that can be mitigated by the use of pigging. He will also discuss the technologies behind ILI tools, their advantages and limitations, and the principles of operation and defect detection of both magnetic flux leakage and ultrasonic ILI tools and guidance on how to select the appropriate technology.
