Neil Flemming, Managing Director of Asset Integrity Engineering (AIE), presented an educational seminar at the American University of Sharjah (AUS). The session covered one of AIE’s core service areas: Pipeline Integrity Management. The seminar was held on 10th February, 2016, and was offered to Mechanical and Chemical Engineering students.
The objective of the seminar was to highlight the importance of maintaining pipeline integrity and safe operations.
The seminar provided an overview of the necessary components of proactive and reactive pipeline integrity management systems. Key threats, mitigation techniques and successful implementation of pipeline integrity were also discussed during the session.
The lecture was well-received by students and professors alike. The Q&A session that followed the presentation brought forward questions regarding pipeline integrity, and asset integrity management as a whole.
Mr Flemming commented: “Such educational seminars further strengthen our bond with AUS; we have employed several Mechanical and Chemical Engineering graduates from AUS and their achievements and quality of work is of a high standard.”
Pipeline Integrity Management is also one of the 10 modules of AIE’s 3-day public Asset Integrity Management (AIM) training course, which is attended by industry professionals from around the world to enhance their knowledge and share their experiences. This year’s first AIM training course will take place from 10th-12th May, 2016, in Dubai, UAE. To know more about this course and book your seat, click here.
