INTERACTIVE GROUP DISCUSSIONS

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

The following session will feature a series of interactive group discussions set in a roundtable format. During this session each group leader will introduce a concept/case study to the participants followed by an interactive discussion and live feedback.
Why participate?
Interactive group discussions are an excellent opportunity to get straight to the point and ask the questions that you want to know the answers to. The group format also facilitates an excellent opportunity for networking between industry professionals

Roundtable One

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM Advanced NDT solutions and remote inspection

Mahmoud Selim, Integrity Technical Authority , Petroleum Development of Oman (PDO)
Awareness of new types of NDT solutions available for accurate and safe inspections. Discuss how remote inspections have paved the way for safer, non-destructive testing. Discuss the potential of shifting from classic NDT approaches to a more comprehensive inspection strategy, combining classic and modern inspection practices including drones and ROAVs.

Roundtable Two

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM Learning from past incidents and failures

Soosiamanickam Arockiasamy, Head of Reliability Department, Salalah Methanol Company
Address the importance of learning through incidents and inspection related failures to grow and move forward in more efficient and accurate inspection performance. Discuss experiences in inspection and share each others failures and incidents to discuss common best practices in moving forward.

Roundtable Three

12:30 PM - 1:30 PM Detecting and inspecting Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI)

Joseph Akanni, Senior Mechanical Static Equipment Engineer, Shell
Discuss the importance of focusing heavily on the classic and most common corrosion, every operator faces, i.e. Corrosion Under Insulation (CUI). Emphasise on how inspections for CUI and effective interpretation can lead to reduced risks and chances of incidents or failures and can substantially reduce maintenance costs in maintaining assets under insulation and in deep waters.
