We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Matt Boring will present a 1.5 hour live webinar entitled, PRCI Thermal Analysis Model for Hot-Tap Welding on October 20, 2020.

This training has the minimum required to hold the class. Further information to be provided upon registration.

This 1.5-hour webinar provides an overview of the PRCI Thermal Analysis Model for Hot-Tap Welding which is widely used model for evaluating the risks associated with in-service welding.  The discussion will include an overview of the risks associated with in-service welding and provide an overview of the model.  The instructor will operate the model and provide examples of theoretical in-service welding applications.  The attendees are encouraged to provide their own in-service welding application for the instructor to evaluate in lieu of the instructor provided examples.

This session is part of a four-part series included our popular 1.5-day, “In-Service Welding-Concerns, Design Implementation, Inspection & Testing, Regulation and Compliance for Engineers, Project Managers, Construction Managers, and Welders.”

Instructor Bio

Mr. Boring is a pipeline welding engineer who works primarily in new pipeline construction, including engineering critical assessments (ECA), pipeline rehabilitation, and in-service or hot-tap welding. Mr. Boring started his career with EWI, where he was responsible for a wide range of welding research projects for the pipeline, offshore structure, pressure vessel, and nuclear industries.
In 2012 Matt joined Kiefner and Associates, where he continued his focus on welding research while expanding into the areas of code compliance and failure investigations of pipeline and associated components. More recently he joined the Incident Investigation Group at DNV GL, where he continues to support the pipeline industry by providing a range of consulting services including new construction, fitness for service, pipeline rehabilitation, and integrity.
Throughout his career, Mr. Boring has been heavily involved in oil and gas industry code development, including being a member and office holder for several industry welding qualification codes. He has been a member of the API 1104 Committee, the ASME Section IX Committee, the ASME Section IX subgroup on welding qualifications, the ASME PCC-2 Committee, and the ASME PCC-2 Repair and Testing Subcommittee.
Mr. Boring is currently the co-chair of the API 1104 Annex B subcommittee, which oversees the API 1104 in-service welding requirements, and the chair of the ASME PCC-2 Welded Repair Subgroup.
Mr. Boring is a registered Professional Welding Engineer in the State of Ohio, as well as an AWS Certified Welding Engineer and AWS Certified Welding Inspector.
