Probabilistic Defect Management

Probabilistic Defect Management

With the limitations of traditional methods to assess the time-to-failure of measured defects, industry operators and regulators are increasingly accepting and utilizing the probabilistic assessment methodology to assess and manage pipeline reliability. These methods can be used to determine the combined influence of all relevant threats to the reliability of a pipeline system over time.

Probabilistic Seismic Hazard Analysis for Strain Demand Distribution Due to Liquefaction induced Lateral Spreading

At the 27th Annual International Ocean and Polar Engineering Conference in San Francisco, California, C-FER presented a paper developing a methodology to estimate pipeline strain demand due to soil liquefaction during an earthquake.

The Benefits of Accurate ILI Performance on Pipeline Integrity Programs for Axial Crack and Metal Loss Corrosion Threats

At the 11th annual International Pipeline Conference in Calgary, Alberta, C-FER presented a paper describing the benefits of an accurate in-line inspection (ILI) system performance.  To request a free copy of this paper, complete the form at the bottom of the page.
