Mike Gloven Will Present “Statistics & Machine Learning for Pipeline Integrity & Risk”  as a webinar on July 30, 2020 at 8 am CDT.

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



 This webinar presents statistical and machine learning methods to support current & new regulatory requirements while at the same time optimizing integrity program costs. The webinar will demonstrate concepts & methods in the context of actual pipeline integrity data:

  • Discover data most influential or important to particular threats or integrity objectives
  • Identify areas of higher levels of threat susceptibility or severity
  • Discover underlying data patterns to validate risk beliefs
  • Find outliers which may pose extraordinary risk
  • Evaluate interactive threats
  • Determine optimal inspection intervals
  • Measure inspection uncertainty
  • Support risk mitigative decision-makingCertificate of Completion with 7.5 PDHs awarded on completion.
