Structural integrity assessment is important for development of methods and materials to improve safe operation and resistance to failure and fracture in all areas of industry. Fracture control is vital where failure of large structures could be catastrophic. This symposium will deal with failure prevention in the oil & gas industry, focusing in particular on the mechanics and phenomena of degradation and fracture initiation by stress corrosion cracking and sulfide stress corrosion cracking.

Failure analysis is a structured approach used to determine the immediate cause of a failure and help identify contributing factors. It helps the asset operator understand future risks, assess mitigating actions, and provide unbiased information to stakeholders.  Failure analysis is a key part of the integrity management system, and the collection of failure data can assist in the safe continued operation of ageing assets.

Natural gas processing, terminals, pipelines and other forms of petroleum product transport are part of the midstream oil & gas sector. Processing these midstream operations safely, efficiently and reliably has proven to be an ongoing challenge. In the current Industries, the gas processor’s focus on the improvement of existing asset reliability and efficiencies that drive capacity and throughput. Transportation plays a major role in midstream activities which include using pipelines, trucking fleets, tanker ships, and rail cars. The midstream gathering and processing sector are relatively free of commercial regulation, the movement of gas by interstate pipelines and subsequent state-level distribution activities are highly regulated in the US by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

Nowadays, Exploration & Production (E&P) companies are looking to maximise production while ensuring safe operations and avoiding environmental impact. By investment the power of digital intelligence, upstream oil and gas facilities will guarantee safe production with higher uptime, reducing actual risks and proving regulations are met. For all upstream operations, it's crucial to access, analyze and present information to satisfy productivity and safety needs. This starts with streamlining data collection, validation, surveillance and notification processes from field systems and engineering applications. the major E&P are improved by using Honeywell Digital Suites for Oil and Gas.

Refining is a process of converting crude oil into usable products. Crude oil is a mixture of hundreds of different types of hydrocarbons with carbon chains of different lengths. These can be separated through refining. The refining technics as follows: Physical separation through crude distillation, Conversion or upgrading of the basic distillation streams, Product treatment to purify and remove contaminants and pollutants, Product blending to create products that comply with market specifications. Cracking: Cracking processes break down heavier hydrocarbon molecules (high boiling point oils) into lighter products such as petrol and diesel, using heat (thermal) or catalysts (catalytic). Enhancing Oil Recovery With Bottom Water Drainage Completion. Field tests with DWS well completions have shown that DWS can control water coning and increase oil production rate.

A whole range of various structures is employed offshore, counting on size and water depth. within the previous couple of years, we have seen pure sea bottom installations with multiphase piping to shore, and no offshore topside structure at all. Shallow water complex, that is characterised by many independent platforms with completely different elements of the process and utilities linked with gangway bridges. Gravity base consists of huge concrete fixed structures placed on the bottom, generally with oil storage cells in a "skirt" that rests on the sea bottom.

Oil and gas industries have unique workflow, working conditions & operational and environmental factors which demand online inventory management solution that effectively monitors the offshore operations to provide a safe workplace for site personnel & tracks the movement of assets for distribution across the supply chain. The remote monitoring of tote operations will ensure the safety of the site personnel by reducing the need to be in the offshore environment for extended periods to record and perform manual inventory. Online inventory monitoring/management system for tote inventory is built using RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) & WSN (Wireless Sensor Networks). RFID and WSN underwent vast development in their own areas and the integration of these two versatile technologies(RFID and WSN) opened doors to industrial automation.

Non-destructive Testing(NDT) methods are utilised in the oil & gas industry, to address problems concerning safety, equipment reliability, and environmental protection and government regulations. the conventional Techniques like Visual inspection is an inexpensive technique for detecting equipment flaws and defect. ultrasonic testing utilizes sound waves uses the piezo-electric effect of the ultrasonic transducer makes it possible to transmit and receive from within the equipment. radiographic strategies utilize X-ray or gamma rays (electromagnetic radiation) to look at the inner structure and integrity of the instrumentation. Thermographic review measures the distinction between the temperature of a pipeline and also the surrounding environment. Acoustic emissions detect the presence of rarefaction waves created by leaks in pipelines. The advanced NDT methods as follows: Novel radioisotope inspection, ultrasonic phased array (PA), Time of flight diffraction (ToFD), Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), Automatic ultrasonic testing (AUT)

According to the recent survey in the field of Oil and gas industries, the safety of the industrial workers is the one of the most important aspect in the industrial regulations. Proper garments shielding for the workers, containment of the exposed region, ergonomics related maintenance, regular electrical and fire safety procedures must be carried out in order to maintain an legal issues which includes optimizing the production systems and effective utilities must be improved to maintain a balance within the economic status of the industry. Improving the performance of the plants by reducing the plant shutdown and ensuring the environmental standards also plays the major role.

 

The Oil and Gas business holds a significant potential of hazards for the atmosphere, and should impact on large areas of the sea, the seabed and on land. They affect the environment through emissions to air, noise from seismic surveys and their physical footprint on the seabed. commercial fish species are sensitive to sound and, at close vary, larval fish might even be killed by seismic sources. Water contamination due to discharges of water effluents made in inorganic salts without appropriate treatment (saline pollution). thermal pollution due to discharge of effluents with temperatures beyond recipient water bodies. Water contamination due to oil spills. Particulate emissions into the atmosphere generated throughout operations at production and refining plants.
