Technical Group Webinar
JOIN OUR POLYMERS AND COMPOSITES TECHNICAL GROUP (TG7) WEBINAR
This webinar is aimed at those who work with composite pipes and are concerned about the reliability of joints.
Attendees will learn about the challenges faced by the oil and gas industry in joining non-metallic pipes, and some of the innovations currently being developed to address them.
The content will cover both thermoplastic and thermoset composites, as well as looking into unreinforced non-metallic pipes.
Experts from industry and TWI will be presenting on a range of topics:
- Gerry Boyce, Director, Hive Composites on Challenges in the design and development of joints for TCP pipelines
- Chris Worrall, Consultant, TWI Ltd on Overview of joining polymers and composites
- Nathan Hartley, Section Manager NRT, TWI Ltd and Sadik Omairey, Project Manager NIC, TWI Ltd on The challenges of inspection of joints in non-metallic pipes.
- Jeroen van Brakel, Engineering Director, NOV Completion and Production Solutions on Current and future challenges in joining thermoset composite pipes
