Matt Boring will present, “Welded Repair of Pipeline Welds” on October 13, 2021
This webinar is mainly designed to familiarize the participant with the requirements embodied in the API 1104 Standard. The participant will also learn about sections of ASME B31.4, B31.8, and ASME Section IX relevant to repair of welds.
- Extensive differences between the requirements of the twentieth and twenty-first editions of API 1104
- Strategies for minimizing the amount of procedure and welder qualification testing needed to comply with the requirements of the standards
- Best practices and discussion of where requirements of the applicable standards are flexible and incomplete
In addition to describing repair of new construction or fabrication welds, the webinar will also introduce the participant to unique considerations related to repair of vintage welds in existing pipelines and special considerations for repair of welds in operating, pressurized pipelines.
The target audience is anyone responsible for pipeline welding projects, including engineers, inspectors, fabricators, construction project managers, and anyone responsible for welder and welding procedure specification qualification and documentation.
