Isolation Techniques in Piping Systems to Prevent Major Incidents

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

This session explores various piping layout/s (e.g. DBB/DIB, PSV’s, Control Valves, large vessels) used in chemical process unit operations, refinery operations, and pipeline operations.

Register by November 15, 2017

Protecting people, the environment and the business are important for organizations. Inadequate isolation puts these priorities at risk. Many significant process safety loss incidents and near miss events occur because of deficient isolation of piping systems for work.

This session explores various piping layouts such as DBB/DIB, PSVs, control valves, and large vessels, that are used in chemical process unit operations, refinery operations, and pipeline operations. The management and control of hazardous energy and certifying safety by a Professional Engineer is critical to safe isolation.

Topics will include:

  • means of isolation for dismantling piping
  • good design
  • proper planning practices for new construction (green fields), retrofits and maintenance

 

When you participate in this session, you will better understand:

  • Alberta's OHS Code on isolation of pipes and piping (Part 15, Section 215.4)
  • Requirements and several means of isolation for safe work

Edmonton Branch – Northern Infrastructure Corridor

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Learn about a proposed northern infrastructure corridor that would address greenhouse gas reduction and aboriginal community and economic development, and use new technology and approaches.

Register by 12 p.m., November 21, 2017

Population growth, economic growth, and social development all rely on infrastructure. Recently, new infrastructure proposals face an expanded set of expectations. However, these expectations also offer the opportunity to incorporate key national and international agendas. A northern infrastructure corridor envisions a game-changing nation-building initiative that would knit Canada together with

  • new ports,
  • high speed rail,
  • smart pipelines,
  • an east-west power grid, and
  • a northern Canadian "cloud".

It would help to address greenhouse gas reduction and aboriginal community and economic development, while incorporating leading edge technologies and new approaches to environmental management, safety, and security.

In this presentation, we will explore how to rejuvenate your job search and better understand the current technical marketplace.

Register by December 6, 2017

Protracted, prolonged and confounding are terms used to describe this current Alberta downturn. The rules of engagement have changed. Applying for positions out of scope have produced predictable and lacklustre results. There seems to be no clear path to reorient a career to where the prospects of work are greater.

In this presentation, we will explore:

  • How to secure cash flow while looking for a job
  • Identify skills that will be your "Plus 15"
  • Determine where the work is
  • Discuss strategies to make inroads into a new sector.

This knowledge will rejuvenate your job search and produce better results due to understanding the current technical marketplace. Participants are invited to bring their resumes as we will be using them during the session.

Calgary Branch Luncheon: Hello Multi-Year Energy Bull Market 2018

11:15 am - 1:30 pm

Join the Calgary Branch for a session on Canada’s energy market presented by Josepf Schacheter, a 40-year veteran of the Canadian Investment Management Industry.

Register by December 8, 2017

Goodbye Energy Bear Market 2014; Hello Multi-Year Energy Bull Market 2018

General stock markets in Canada and the US have seen upside and profits for investors, but the energy and service sector has seen significant losses this year. We have been bearish since mid-2014 and—except for being supportive of investing in late 2015 to early 2016 for a rally in the market that lasted for around six months—this bearish posture has been correct.

We are now heading into tax loss selling season, the painful period for investors which can be brutal to energy stocks in energy bear market years. In the next two months, OPEC's production decisions will determine the magnitude of the upcoming decline in oil prices. The good news: we expect to have turned bullish over the next few months. This should set up an attractive low-risk buying opportunity. Come and hear why!

About the Presenter

Josef I. SchachterAs a 40-year veteran of the Canadian Investment Management Industry, Josef Schachter has experienced several exceptional and turbulent global economic and stock market cycles. With his primary focus on the Energy Sector, Josef is able to weave global political, economic, and monetary issues with current energy data into a compelling story of what's going on in the sector, what is to come, and why.

Josef provides oil and gas research coverage for small to mid-cap energy companies. He served as Richardson Greenshields' Market Strategist from 1991-1996. He holds the Chartered Financial Analyst and Certified Management Accountant designations, and is a past Chairman of the Canadian Council of Financial Analysts.

Edmonton Branch – Architecture of Upper Cretaceous Faulting

5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Learn about the Great Plains Polygonal Fault System, examine its outcrop and subsurface geology, and discuss the potential ramifications for civil engineering in Alberta.

Register by January 19, 2018

Great Plains Polygonal Fault SystemCivil engineering considerations within the Great Plains Polygonal Fault System

The Great Plains Polygonal Fault System is an aerially extensive system of faulting that has been identified in Upper Cretaceous rocks at or near ground surface throughout an area that covers ~2,000,000 km. Faulting ranges from non-existent to faults with up to 80 m of vertical offset as interpreted using seismic data from southeastern Saskatchewan. An examination of outcrop and subsurface geology will be presented to discuss the potential ramifications for civil engineering in Alberta. The main point to be made is that the there is a continuity of pervasive faulting throughout the Great Plains area in fine-grained Upper Cretaceous rock.

The talk will cover many points including:

  • A deposition model for Upper Cretaceous strata in the Great Plains.
  • The cause of the faulting.
  • Variability of strata such as bentonite within the faulted layers.
  • Subsurface fault identification.
  • Examples of faulting throughout the Great Plains area.
