28th February 2017

REF: Aberdeen Branch Meeting

Speaker: Gary Wallace of Permasense

Topic: CM - Monitoring High Temperature Corrosion Attack: correlation between Crude Corrosiveness and results from online Corrosion Monitoring.

Online monitoring of corrosion is fast becoming industry best-practice over traditional periodic manual inspection as a means of gathering an up-to-date and more thorough picture of asset integrity. This talk will demonstrate how data delivered by an online corrosion monitoring system correlated with micro-changes in the measured corrosion influencing variables during a period of high temperature corrosion attack. The monitoring system delivers both wall thickness measurements and a measure of change in shape of the ultrasonic back wall reflection over time (Permasense Shape Indicator) directly to the engineer’s desk for linkage with other process information via DCS/PI systems.

Venue: Palm Court Hotel, 81 Seafield Rd, Aberdeen AB15 7YX

Event starts at 18.00, Presentation starts 18.30

"Some Recent Offshore Cathodic Protection Life Extension Projects - What's New?"

Mr Jim Britton - President & CEO Deepwater Corrosion Services Inc

Jim Britton has worked in the offshore corrosion field since 1973. He was educated in the UK and began his offshore career in the North Sea in the 1970’s. In 1982 he relocated to Houston, where he subsequently formed Deepwater Corrosion Services in 1986, the company now has 5 international offices in key offshore locations. Jim has published dozens of technical papers on offshore-corrosion-related issues. He holds several patents for technology associated with asset integrity management. Since 2000 he has focussed the company on asset integrity solutions, specifically on life extension of ageing brownfield offshore infrastructure.
