  • ASME-1411 Indirect Inspection Techniques

    Course Description

    Corrosion threatens the integrity of pipeline systems. Indirect inspections look for faults in the pipeline's protective
    coating, assess the cathodic protection system, and examine the pipeline environment. Done properly, your indirect
    inspections contribute to the overall safety of the pipeline.

    Objectives

    • Identify the requirements for conducting an indirect inspection.
    • Explain how to check test equipment, and describe potential problems.
    • Describe indirect inspection techniques.
    • Discuss how to recognize and react to potential abnormal operating conditions.
    • List documentation requirements.

  • ASME-1421 Direct Examination Techniques

    Course Description

    Corrosion is a constant threat to pipeline systems. Direct examinations test pipeline integrity and the threat of
    corrosion. Done, properly, direct examinations contribute to overall safety of the pipeline.

    Objectives

    • Identify the requirements for conducting a direct examination.
    • Check test equipment and recognize potential problems.
    • Perform direct examination techniques.
    • Recognize and react to potential abnormal operating conditions.
    • Describe documentation requirements.

  • ASME-1631 Launching-Receiving Pigs for Lines Out-of-Service

    Course Description

    Pipeline pre-commissioning is a main reason for pigging lines out-of-service. It is the process of proving a pipeline's
    ability to contain product without leaking and involves a series of steps carried out before the final product is
    introduced.

    Objectives

    • Prepare for pigging lines out-of-service
    • Off-line pigging operations
    • Abnormal Operating Conditions

  • ASME-1641 Launching-Receiving Pigs for Lines In-Service

    Course Description

    A large network of pipelines transports natural gas, crude oil, and other refined products across the nation.
    Maintaining pipeline integrity and ensuring the efficient, economical, and safe transportation of these products is of
    great importance. Use of pipeline inspection gauges (PIGs) is one of the principal methods used to ensure efficient
    pipeline operation. Some pigs are used to clean pipes or help batch products while others, such as "smart pigs“, are
    used to measure things like pipe thickness and corrosion to detect metal loss along the pipeline for integrity
    management purposes. This course covers pipeline pigging operations, practices, and equipment used in launching
    and receiving pigs for lines in-service in order to clean, inspect, batch and plug pipelines for effective and efficient
    operation.

    Objectives

    • Perform pipeline pigging operations.
    • Identify pig types and pigging components.
    • Recognize operator responsibilities.
    • Implement certain pigging activities.
    • Recognize and react to abnormal operating conditions.

  • ASME-1651 Purging of Flammable or Inert Gas

    Course Description

    Gas piping design, operation, and purging responsibilities require a very specialized level of expertise. A number of
    high-profile explosions related to careless errors and improper purging practices have brought these issues to the
    forefront for many organizations. Beyond the risk of death and injury, gas pipeline purging incidents can cause
    extensive property damage worth millions of dollars, cause significant lost production time, and irreversibly damage a company's reputation. Therefore, an established purging process is best followed to ensure a safe and complete
    purge.

    Objectives

    • Identify code requirements, proper purging procedures, and potential hazards.
    • Perform pre-purge, purge, and post-purge activities.
    • Recognize different purge factors such as pressure, rate, velocity, time, and mediums.
    • Identify appropriate purging equipment.
    • Properly purge pipelines in-and-out of service.
    • Recognize and react to anticipated and abnormal operating conditions.
