Welcome to the summer issue of the magazine. I hope you have all had a good holiday break, or that you have one planned soon.
This issue has the usual columns and technical articles, except for “Ask the Expert”. All our panel have been on holiday, but don’t worry they will be back to answer your technical questions in the next issue.
The three technical articles have complementary themes relating to fabric maintenance and inspection. Simon Hope describes a methodology for the control of fabric maintenance of offshore structures. Ali Morshed discusses how to reduce corrosion failures, by maintaining a leak register of an asset, and Chukwuma Onuoha explains the use of external corrosion direct assessment in relation to pipelines.
As always, I welcome readers comments about the magazine, and remind you to send in your technical questions for answer by our panel of experts.
