Event Description

ClampOn is pleased to invite you to our technical workshop in Paris la Defense on Wednesday 16th October 2019.

The workshop will cover two main topics; erosion during the morning session and subsea vibration in the afternoon.
You may attend one or both sessions.

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 production, it is possible to reduce the risk whilst maintaining optimum performance. Together with Xodus Group, 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, together with subsea measurement of vibration, this threat can often be removed. Together with Wood, we will demonstrate how to address this during design stage and on operational facilities, and present monitoring solutions.

Detailed Agenda:

  • 08:30 – Registration
    – Badge pick-up and coffee
  • 09:00 – Welcome and Product Introduction
    Tonje Dahl & Kjetil Nysæter, ClampOn
    – Practical information
    – Product demonstration
  • 09:30 – Getting more from your sensor with CFD & FEA
    Neil Barton, Specialist Sand & Erosion, Xodus Group
    – Identifying the best location for sensors 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.
  • 10:20 – Sand Management: New technology can improve safety on high risk sand producers
    Torbjørn Haugsdal, Manager Service Dept., 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 and 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?
  • 11:10 – Coffee & tea break
    – Product demonstrations available
  • 11:30 – Corrosion and Erosion Monitoring
    Geir Instanes, Vice President, ClampOn
    – Working principle
    – Advantages and limitations
    – Erosion application
    – Bend measurement
    – Field cases
  • 12:30 – Lunch
  • 13:30 – Erosion Control Technology (ECT) for Production Debottlenecking
    Prasad Kane, Senior Engineering Specialist, IntecSea
    – ECT technology uses a novel approach for controlling sand erosion. It relies on the strategic placement of customised inserts within a flow path to reduce the concentrated effects of erosion.
    – ECT is conceptually simple and provides an adaptable solution. The customised inserts can be retrofitted for brownfield applications or considered for new developments to extract added value.
  • 14:30 – Coffee & tea break
    – Product demonstrations available
  • 14:45 – Subsea Vibration: Identifying the threat and quantifying the integrity risk
    Rob Swindell, Vibration Engineering Lead, Wood.
    – Overview of subsea vibraiton issues
    – Identification – screening methods
    – Quantification – measurement and simulation
  • 15:45 – Subsea Vibration Monitoring
    Kjetil Nysæter, Area Sales Manager, ClampOn
    – Inspection vs. monitoring
    – ASVD (Sand & Vibration monitoring)
    – Field cases
    – What’s new
  • 16:30 – Coffee & tea break
  • 16:45 – Condition Monitoring
    Geir Instanes, Vice President, ClampOn
    – Spectrum Analysis
    – More measurement data make better decisions
    – Added functionaltiy to ClampOn instruments
    – Field examples
  • 17:30 – Q & A and Sum up
