Tech Day London 2019

3 April 2019 Novotel London Brentford

Brentford, TW8 0GP





Tech Day is coming up in London Wednesday 3. April 2019.

ClampOn is pleased to invite you to a technical workshop, at Novotel London Brentford Hotel 3rd April 2019. 

The Tech Day will cover two themes; erosion during the morning session, and subsea vibration in the afternoon.
You may attend one or both of the sessions. In either case we hope you will join us for lunch.

Morning session:
Risk of erosion caused by sand production results in several challenges. By undertaking a proper analysis during the design phase, together with online sand and erosion monitoring during the production phase, it is possible to reduce the risk whilst maintaining optimum performance. Together with partners, we will show how you can achieve this by means of analysis combined with acoustic instrumentation.

Afternoon session: 
The hidden threat of an equipment failure due to vibration on subsea systems has already resulted in several cases of production stoppages, leaks, and reduced equipment lifetime. By means of screening and/or advanced simulation during design phase, together with subsea measurement of vibration, this threat can often be removed.
Mr. Rob Swindell from Wood will show how to address this during the design stage and on operational facilities, before ClampOn presents monitoring solutions.

Detailed programme:

09:00 – Registration
Badge pick-up and coffee
09:30 – Welcome and Introduction – Tonje Dahl, ClampOn
Safety briefing
Welcome and practical information

09:40 – Getting More from Your Sensors with CFD & FEA
– Mike Lewis, Xodus Group
Identifying the best location for a sensor can be difficult, particularly subsea, where space and options are often limited. Getting this right can make a big difference. CFD and FE modelling provide powerful tools for optimizing sensor location and relating their outputs to meaningful measures of erosion, sand production, vibration and corrosion.

10:30 – Coffee & tea break

Product demonstrations available

10:50 – Sand Management: New Technology can Improve Safety on High Risk Sand Producers
– Torbjørn Haugsdal, ClampOn
Sand Management is Risk Management. For gas wells at high velocity, the risk can be very high. When planning and performing sand management, the risk of an accident cannot be accepted. Designing an installation to handle much more sand than is actually produced is a waste of money, so what is the alternative? 

11:40 – Corrosion and Erosion Monitoring
– Geir Instanes, ClampOn

Advantages and Limitations
Erosion Application
Bend Measurement
Field Cases

12:30 – Lunch

13:30 – Subsea Vibration: Identifying the Threat and Quantifying the Integrity Risk – Rob Swindell, Wood

Mike Lewis, Global Lead – Computational Fluid Dynamics, Xodus Group

Presenters from ClampOn:
Geir Instanes, Vice President
Kjetil Nysæter, Area Sales Manager
Torbjørn Haugsdal, Service & Support Manager

We hope that you will join us for this great event in London, and as always we will let the technology speak for itself and leave the sales and marketing behind!
