The Pipeline Integrity Master Class

May 7-11, 2012
The Woodlands
, Texas

Over the last 15 years Clarion-Tiratsoo Technical, Penspen and others have educated thousands of pipeline engineers in the essential tools and methods of pipeline integrity assessment. While there continues to be a need for these training courses, more-experienced engineers, who may have risen to senior technical-management positions, need a 'next-level' course that will focus on more complex, sophisticated and nuanced issues - not just in the application of PIM technologies and methods, but in the real management of the asset from a risk and business point of view.

That is the objective of The Pipeline Integrity Master Class to be offered for the first time in 2012 in the UK and the USA.

The five-day syllabus content will be flexible to match the particular needs and interests of each group of class participants, who will receive a questionnaire in advance of the class. Led by a world-class team of instructors, it will be heavy on group problem-solving exercises and case study analysis and will also feature guest lectures from senior operating-company executives and technical specialists.

To facilitate and optimize interaction between participants and instructors, and among the participants themselves, the course will take place at excellent-quality conference centers offering residential accommodation: in the USA, The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center near Houston; in the UK, the Low Wood Bay Hotel on Lake Windermere, near Ambleside in the Lakes District of England. To obtain the full benefits of the class, participants are urged to book in at the class venue for the duration, as discussions and activities will continue into the evenings.
