Upstream - Valve Selection - Panel Discussion

Valve selection follows a similar strategy in any segment. One will always need to understand process conditions and the role the valve will be playing in the installation. Having said that, a professional used to specify valves for upstream is not automatically qualified to do the same in mid or downstream. This is because each segment has particularities and challenges that only experienced professionals can fully grasp. In these three panels, experienced professionals from each segment will share their experiences and help newcomers understand the many layers of knowledge required to do proper valve selection, such as standards, materials, supplementary requirements, and fugitive emissions.

Session Chair: Greg Peterson, MRC Global

Panelists:

  • Gilbert Alonzo, BP
  • Carlo De Bernardi, ConocoPhillips
  • TBD, Balon Valves
  • TBD, Valveworks USA

Midstream - Valve Selection/API 6D Update

API 6D is currently undergoing a major revision from current 24th Edition to the 25th Edition, which is expected to publish late 2021. The next phase of comment resolution meetings is set for early August, after which the 25th Ed. will be done with revision, and ready to turn over to API for publication. This session will include a presentation of the changes, and a panel of API 6D Task Group Members will discuss/explain the differences, why changes were made, what to do to conform to the new/different requirements, etc.

Fugitive Emissions - ESG

Investors worldwide are becoming more and more concerned about the sustainability and environmental footprint of the companies they put their money on. A common acronym related to this is Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), a set of standards covering different areas that gauge how attractive a company might be for socially conscious investors. Join this panel to learn more about ESG and how this can lead to more funding for your business.

Upstream - IOGP

The IOGP (International Association of Oil and Gas Producers) has among its members some of the major oil companies in the world. All of these companies had internal requirements to be used in conjunction with design standards when purchasing industrial valves. All of these different requirements were harmonized in a set of publications to be adopted by all members. In this presentation, two of these new documents will be explored:

SPECIFICATION S-562, Supplementary Requirements to API Spec 6D – Ball Valves 

SPECIFICATION S-611, Supplementary Requirements to API 600 Steel Gate Valves and to API 603 CRA Gate Valves

Midstream - Actuation & Automation

Session Chair: Sam Davis, RFS Compliance Solutions

Actuated valve assemblies are either part of a control or safety system. Hence, failure to act upsets the process – as a minimum – or jeopardizes the plant (in the worst case). This problem is compounded when the valve is installed in a remote location, without means of fast intervention in case of trouble. The reliability of a valve assembly is the sum of many parts, from the adequate specification and sizing to the instrumentation used for monitoring and prediction of life. In this panel, experts from different areas will discuss guidelines and lessons learned in how to best achieve success when dealing with these valves.

  • Remote locations
  • IIOT
  • electro, pneumatic, hydraulic

Panelists:

  • Dean Lawrence, Neles

Downstream - Control Valves

Control valves are the most challenging valves to be selected, sized, and operated. Flawless operation is only achieved when professionals from different disciplines - process, mechanical, and instrumentation, as a minimum – join forces in an interdisciplinary effort to tackle the many compromises required. In this panel, attendees will be able to learn more about the decision making process involved in a successful specification.

Fugitive Emissions - Monitoring and Testing

Keeping track of fugitive emissions in a plant with thousands of components to be monitored is a daunting task. The team leading the effort has to coordinate tasks within several departments and also keep a constant tab on upcoming legislation. Join this presentation to learn the latest technologies in monitoring and testing of valves to achieve success in your program.

Midstream - Pipeline Valves & Large Components

Pipelines often employ valve sizes above what many industries consider large. When dealing with these over-sized valves, many of the common solutions employed for designing, fabrication, transportation, installation, and operation might be significantly different from their “regular” sized counterparts. In this presentation, some of the challenges regularly encountered in large pipeline valves will be discussed.

  •  Mainline Valves
  • Service Work
  • Mainline Transmission 

Format: Panel/Presentations

Session chair: Gilbert Alonzo, BP

Downstream - Maintenance & Turnarounds

A typical industrial plant has thousands of valves; each one of them prone to disrupt production in case of failure. Maintenance is employed to alleviate the probability of failure, but due to sheer the number of valves and the ever-present limitation of resources, compromises must be made. That means that different businesses use a mix of maintenance strategies to best suit their needs. Turnarounds are complex maintenance events. During some critical weeks, a plant is shutdown and thousands of workers and materials have to be coordinated into a myriad of tasks. In this panel, we will learn how valves play a significant role in these events and how tasks involving them are commonly addressed. Some of the maintenance strategies will be discussed and participants will be able to relate and adapt the experiences to their particular situation.

Fugitive Emissions - Strategies to Minimize Fugitive Emissions

Complying with fugitive emissions regulations requires a tremendous amount of effort. For such end, different companies employ different approaches. For example, some might invest more on technology, some might rely in maintenance procedures. In this presentation, examples of real strategies will be shared, covering how controlling fugitive emissions might use extraordinary solutions.
