Introduction

This interactive, applications-driven 5-day training seminar will highlight the added value that Hot Tapping and Plugging practices advised by API standards can offer to support engineers and technicians working in pipe lines installation and maintenance. It will show how to safely use the equipment and apply the modern techniques in successful hot tapping and plugging a pipe line.

The training seminar will emphasize the application of related recommended API practices for pipe lines hot tapping and plugging, focus on proper equipment selection, retrieval and interpretation of data from equipment manuals, preparatory actions prior to process execution, and safely carry out the hot tapping and plugging process.

This training seminar will feature:

  • Discussions on the benefits and applications of hot tapping and plugging process
  • The importance of proper selection of hot tapping and plugging equipment and understanding the related API recommended practice
  • The detailed procedure of pipelines hot tapping and plugging, and the specific safety precautions
  • Focusing on in-service hot tapping emergency action plan

Objectives

By the end of this training seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Outline the economic and environmental benefits of pipelines hot tapping and plugging
  • Retrieval and interpretation of data and procedure from hot tapping and plugging equipment manuals
  • Properly select the hot tapping and plugging equipment for specific applications
  • Describe the procedure of hot tapping and plugging
  • Apply the safety precautions in conducting the hot tapping and plugging process
  • Apply H&S instruction when conducting pipelines hot tapping and plugging process

Training Methodology

This training seminar will utilise a variety of proven adult learning techniques to ensure maximum understanding, comprehension and retention of the information presented. The daily seminar sections will be highly interactive and participative. It also involves detailed discussions accompanying the presentation of videos showing the equipment, the safety precautions, and the whole procedure of pipe lines` hot tapping and plugging. Delegates are strongly encouraged to bring and analyse data from their own work domain; this adds greater relevancy to the content.

Organisational Impact

When a company sends their employees to attend this particular seminar, it expects that following benefits will be gained:

  • Optimization of delegates` usage of tools, equipment, and materials while maintaining the organization` oil and gas pipelines.
