A raft of new technical good practice guidelines for the offshore oil and gas sector have today been published, coinciding with two Energy Institute (EI) flagship events - the Middle East HSE & Sustainability Forum in Dubai and the Asset Integrity and Operational Management conference in Aberdeen.
As part of the Energy Institute’s core commitment to provide industry with cost-effective, value-adding good practice, delegates will hear first-hand how the guidelines are helping to underpin the health and safety processes of global oil and gas operations.
The three guidelines published, on the avoidance of vibration induced fatigue failure in subsea systems, integrity management of corrosion under pipe supports (CUPS) and injection of corrosion inhibitors in production systems, were produced by the Energy Institute in collaboration with industry expert steering panels.
Martin Maeso MEI, Technical Director of the Energy Institute commented:
“This new guidance on managing vibration and corrosion is of global relevance to the oil and gas industry, which is why the EI is showcasing it at events in both Aberdeen and Dubai.
“Good practice guidance on maintaining ageing infrastructure is not only vital to avoid major accidents hazards but helps improve safety whilst reducing unplanned maintenance and repair costs.
“The Energy Institute continues to engage our membership and the sector to produce guidance that make a real difference to industry’s collective efforts to ensure safe and efficient offshore operations.”
The EI is a leading provider of technical publications covering health, safety, environment, fuel quality and distribution, energy engineering, corrosion management and ageing & life extension. These include good practice guidance, test methods, measurement manuals, conferences and workshops.
