The International Pipeline Conference (IPC) is held every second year in Calgary, Canada. It was founded in 1996 has become the premier event of the international pipeline industry with participants from more than 44 countries and over 1,300 delegates.
In this years’ IPC held from September 24-28, Energy Pipelines CRC researchers have presented five papers to hundreds of pipeline industry representatives. The University of Wollongong research team involved in the CCS RDD project have provided three papers:
- CO2Safe-Arrest: A full-scale burst test research program for carbon dioxide pipelines – part 1: Project overview and outcomes of test 1 . (Presenter: Valerie Linton)
- CO2Safe-Arrest: A full-scale burst test research program for carbon dioxide pipelines – part 2: Is the BTCM out of touch with dense-phase CO2. (Presenter: Guillaume Michal)
- CO2Safe-Arrest: A full-scale burst test research program for carbon dioxide pipelines – part 3: Dispersion modelling. (Presenter: Ajit Godbole)
Moreover Jan Hayes presented two paper’s at this year’s IPC. The second paper was provided jointly with Francis Carroll (APA Group).
- Is public safety implicated by multiple regulatory regimes for gas pipelines and networks (Presenter: Jan Hayes)
- Effective risk management for in-service pipelines: achieving ALARP by pressure management and slab protection (Presenters: Francis Carroll and Jan Hayes)
Dr Jan Hayes also spoke as part of a ‘fireside chat’ titled ‘Understanding human and organisational factors that contribute to incidents’. This panel session was very well attended and covered a number of a number of social science areas covered in the Energy Pipelines CRC research program 4 on public safety and security of supply.
