June Research Seminar An Opportunity To Encourage Conversation On Projects
Over 50 members of the Australian pipeline industry and researchers from the Energy Pipelines CRC recently met for the 15th in its series of biannual Research Seminars. Held on the 7th June 2017 at the Stamford Plaza at Sydney Airport, the event had a strong focus on usable outcomes for industry.
Presentations covered a broad array of industry relevant issues including SCC initiation in linepipe, Pipeline vent design and acoustics during a blowdown and an examination of the effect of economic and technical regulation on industry practices.
Special thanks must be given to Baosteel and the BAJC for a presentation given on Heat Affected Zone Toughness in high strength steels research currently being undertaken at the University of Wollongong.
As always, the seminar provided engaging technical discussion with attendees sharing their views and insights on how projects could be guided to assist in meeting industry challenges as well as improve practices.
That evening, seminar attendees and other APGA members were treated to an insightful talk by Mark Twycross from Twycross and Partners Ltd. His talk, as part of the annual lessons learned series, shared experiences on major pipeline construction projects and the importance of ongoing professional relationships within industry.
Recorded presentations from this event will be accessible on the Energy Pipelines CRC website shortly. These are only accessible to APGA RSC member companies and university partners.
The next Energy Pipelines CRC Research Seminar will take place on the 15th November 2017 in Melbourne. The event is open and complementary to all APGA RSC member employees and Energy Pipelines CRC researchers.
