Meeting Europe’s Natural Gas Infrastructure Challenge: Opportunities and Outlook 2020
5 December 2019

Demand for Europe’s natural gas transmission infrastructure is increasingly in focus as the continent’s natural gas dependency continues to reach all-time highs. Amid steep year-over-year declines in natural gas production, the continent is increasingly reliant on LNG imports and international pipelines to supply key regions. But key restraints remain in areas where import capacity has insufficient access to growing demand centers. Additionally, emerging demand factors and remote upstream developments amid a push for lower carbon fuels provides a context for midstream infrastructure investment.

We examine the implications for managing the supply of natural gas through Europe to consumers. We examine capital investments, potential, and identify areas where a conflux of issues may lead to a gas transmission system shortfall. We examine regional natural gas transmission capacity and import facility capacities compared to the prospects of domestic supply and growing demand centers. Which areas require additional investment by midstream operators and what are the implications of this for the broader gas dynamics of Europe?

Save time and money during pipeline construction with Smartengo Best Fit
4 December 2019

Sponsor: Vallourec

Nothing slows down the pipeline construction process more than trying to fit together pipe ends that just don’t match. The HiLo is too great, construction is stopped, whilst the un-matched pipe is taken off the firing line and quarantined, slowing down operations and costing you time and money.
Imagine then a smart digital solution that accurately predicts the HiLo of all possible pipe-end combinations, that anticipates operational constraints and using a unique pipe-end identification technology, enables you to maximize compatibility of pipes on the firing line to speed up construction and secure planning.  An as-built digital tally of the line pipe construction is automatically generated in an easy to exploit format with alert functionalities.
Gonzague Vollaire and Nicolas Gotusso will share the results and feedback of recent projects from around the world. On spool bases and offshore, for welded and seamless pipes, with no additional personnel, each project achieved direct time savings in excess of 10%. With Smartengo Best Fit, the HiLo can be reduced by up to 30% leading to improved weld quality and other benefits.

BISEP with Integrated Bypass – A New Approach for Temporary Double Block and Bleed Pipeline Isolation
17 September 2019

Sponsor: STATS Group

Pipeline operators are faced with challenges maintaining pipeline operation during required repair and maintenance activities. Traditionally operators have had to use multiple split tee fittings or temporary suspend pipeline operation to allow for these necessary activities to take place. STATS Group has successfully introduced a new approach to pipeline isolation that not only provides for the highest possible level of safety (via STATS’ patented BISEP® technology) but also an active bypass through the BISEPs themselves when installed in pairs, thereby allow for temporary flow around the area requiring repair/maintenance. The presenters will speak to the technical underpinnings of the technology, the key advantages of this new BISEP system and provide for a series of practical case studies on real world applications showing the BISEP with integrated bypass in action. It is expected that attendees will be able to incorporate learnings from this webinar into their upcoming pipeline repair/maintenance projects and provide valuable options that avoid temporarily shutting down the pipeline.

Environmental Considerations for Gas Pipeline Construction in Sensitive Areas
11 September 2019

Presented By: Vepica

Ambioconsult, a subsidiary of Vepica, developed an environmental and social impact assessment for a subsea/land gas pipeline in Venezuela. This webcast will provide details on how the project lessened environmental impact and complied with regulations and stringent conditions, such as the presence of national parks and endangered species. The presenters will provide the steps they used to achieve social and environmental sustainability in a capital-intensive natural gas pipeline project.

2019 Global Pipeline Construction Outlook
29 January 2019

Oil prices skidded in the final weeks of a turbulent 2018, but the midstream sector roared into the new year on a wave of pipeline construction activity driven by the global shift toward natural gas, the rapid growth of shale production, and the infrastructure demands created by changing patterns of interregional trade.

Tapping the power of Energy Web Atlas global pipeline datasets, Pipeline & Gas Journal has quantified the impact these midstream trends are having on global pipeline construction activity.  Its latest survey indicates 145,353 miles of pipelines were planned or under construction worldwide at the start of the new year – a 73% increase over survey findings published in January 2017.

In this webcast, the editors of P&GJ will share region-by-region survey results and updates on major projects, with an emphasis on those scheduled for completion or final investment decisions in 2019.  They also will share their latest perspectives on the potential impact of oil prices on midstream activity in key growth areas such as the U.S. Permian Basin and Gulf Coast region.
