Pressure Testing


    Pressure testing of pipeline is a common method to prove the integrity of a pipeline. And yet, a mix of art and science is needed to achieve a hydrostatic test that provides failure free operations for many years. Approaches and advantages of approaches to hydrostatic testing of pipelines are presented.

    For over 25 years, Applus+ Engineering staff have presented fundamental and accepted strategies for maintaining safe pipelines. We are pleased to announce the development of a structured series of online courses to provide training on fundamental pipeline integrity concepts and methods. The material in these courses provide the fundamental concepts of the effects of defects and imperfections on pipelines as well as methods for preventing, assessing, and mitigating them. The intended audience are pipeline company engineers e new or have only a few years of experience in integrity management. An introduction to pipeline defects, cathodic protection, defect assessment, in-line inspection, pipeline repair and hydrostatic testing are some of the topics presented in this workshop. More in-depth programs on these topics will available in future workshops. Sessions can be taken individually; however, registering for all sessions provides a price reduction and the benefit of having comprehensive pipeline integrity training.
