About this Podcast...

Roland Palmer-Jones, Head of Pipeline Integrity at Penspen, joins Oil & Gas IQ to discuss how to prepare for a potential subsea pipeline disaster and to offer an insight on Penspen’s work with Qatar Gas to develop successful repair systems.

Large diameter subsea pipelines are key assets and damage to these pipelines from ship’s anchors has resulted in failures and temporary shutdowns with huge financial implications for the affected operators.

The ability to rapidly inspect, assess, and repair such damage is vital for the maintenance of reliability. As world experts who have assisted many operators in the emergency assessment of damaged pipelines and provided advice for the selection of the most effective repair, Penspen are uniquely placed to offer a perspective on the systems and procedures the operators of subsea pipelines need to have in place to ensure that they can safely return to service as quickly as possible following a major damage incident.

In the interview, Roland touches on issues like:

  • Making decisions on continued operation or shutting down with limited information under severe time and financial pressure
  • Inspection methods and limitations for typical anchor damage
  • Damage assessment methods and limitations
  • Selecting a safe reliable permanent repair
  • Case studies of two real anchor damage incidents
  • How to prepare for anchor damage
