Oil Review Middle East hosted a GPT Industries webinar on “How to seal, protect & isolate pipeline flanges in extreme corrosion” on 1 March 2023
Pipeline corrosion professionals in the Middle East must navigate various challenges such as an increase in chemicals in pipelines, the use of steam, increased pressures and temperatures, fire safety, sour gas and emissions.
The webinar provided exclusive insights on how to proactively tackle challenges posed by new markets such as LNG, EOR, CCUS, natural gas and hydrogen, as well as dealing with traditional corrosion challenges.
GPT Industries’ product manager Ian Kinnear shared cutting-edge intelligence on
• Cost-effective options to seal, protect and isolate pipeline flanges in extreme conditions without the use of exotic material
• How you can prevent electrical bridging, permeation and material degradation caused by harsh media conditions, higher pressures and temperatures to prevent severe corrosion
• Overcoming traditional challenges such as installation, ring type joint corrosion, material selection, permeation and more by applying advanced methods to optimise pipeline integrity
The presentation was followed by a lively question and answer session.
