February 6 | PD Evening: Pipeline Leak Detection

There is increasing interest in understanding more about pipeline-leak detection methods and how to implement them for liquids pipelines. Leak detection is a diverse topic drawing on a broad range of technical skills and experience. This presentation will provide an overview of leak-detection methods focusing on their applicability for upstream and midstream liquids pipelines. Also, the latest pipeline regulatory requirements—including how leak detection fits into pipeline safety and loss management programs—will be presented. The presentation will close with a discussion of practical applications and lessons learned on recent projects. The Edmonton Branch is excited to offer webinar and in-person attendance for this PD evening.
