Thank you for attedning the Virtual Triaing Complex Corrosion: What is it and how does it affect our pipeline. Please find the recording below for your use.
Corrosion under insulation (CUI), microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) and Preferential Weld Corrosion (PWC) are corrosion processes that result in complex metal loss features that very often include pinholes. Features like this are notoriously difficult to detect and size reliably using the standard MFL technology. Improvements in the understanding of MFL based on detailed finite element simulations and advances in computer and sensor technology have allowed the development of ultra-high-resolution MFL system that supplies a resolution similar to that of 3D optical scanning.
This presentation will provide a detailed explanation of the corrosion phenomena and its implications in the pipeline integrity management, relevant descriptions of the solutions for the detection and sizing challenges of pinhole-like anomalies, as well as real-life examples that show the advantages for cost effective integrity management for this thread.
