Pipeline Integrity Management Systems (PIMS) provide a comprehensive, integrated framework for efficient pipeline management. Significant failures in gas pipelines and liquid pipelines have brought global headlines and have encouraged the merging of technology with technology.

There is not one correct “formula” for developing an integrity management system, but some of the underlying principles of an effective management system that are successfully integrated in companies around the world exist. Industry groups such as the International Oil and Gas Association and the US Petroleum Institute (API) have developed guidelines that can be used as additional references for the development of management systems. Codes, standards and regulations governing the pipeline industry continue to change in response to lessons learned from the industry’s failure.

The primary focus of each gas pipeline operator will be on operation and maintenance
gas pipeline in such a way as to continuously provide continuous services to customers,
the highest reliability and safety, and all without any adverse events that can adversely affect the environment.
The pipeline integrity management system will provide a comprehensive and structured framework for
gas pipeline status estimate, probable threats, risk assessment and mitigation measures to ensure safe and uninterrupted gas pipeline operation.

Pheromy PIMSF is an integrated comprehensive solution for monitoring all product line items, organizing documentation and repair planning, ‘Cloud friendly’ and fully ‘Web browser responsive’, and globally accessible to operators and technical staff.
The system is in industrial use by one of the main gas pipeline network operators.

For more information, online, information and presentation is available at Feromihin PIMSF.

PIMSF was also introduced at the 34th international meeting of gas specialists (May 8 – 10, 2019, Opatija) and attracted the attention of domestic and foreign experts, with their innovativeness, visual impressions and characteristics.

34th international meeting of gas specialists – Opatija

Organized by the Croatian Gas Center d.o.o. and the Croatian Association of Gas Professionals (HSUP), from May 08 to May 10, 2019, the 34th international scientific and expert meeting of gas experts was held.

As one of the largest international gas conferences in the region of Central and South-Eastern Europe, several hundred gas and energy experts attended, of which 60 distinguished lecturers and more than 40 exhibitors from 20 countries of Europe and the world.

Feromihin, as a professional in maintaining the integrity of the gas pipeline and connected system devices, presented their achievements with advanced technologies at booth 18a.

Digital twin field in Norway

Wintershall AS has named Aker Solutions to build a complete digital replica of the ‘Nova’ production system to enable data, production and maintenance decisions in the ‘Nova’ field in Norway.

It was discovered in 2012 and is located in the area of Kvadrant 35 in the Norwegian North Sea. Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract for the supply of an underwater production system for the area in early 2018.

The digital twin will become an advanced replacement of traditional manuals and documentation on a paper base, ensuring that all relevant engineering data is centrally maintained in one, interactive and searchable solution. It will be built on a cloud-based architecture that will be able to process live data and ensure that vital engineering information is constantly updated.

Aaste Hansteen in production

Aaste Hansteen’s Norwegian gas field is produced!

Equinor and its partners announced the start of Aas Hansteen gas field production in the Norwegian Sea.

The deep gas development is located in the northern part of the Norwegian Sea, 300 kilometers from Norway’s mainland and at a depth of 1300 meters.

“Aast Hansteen is a pioneer! Located at 1,300 meters deep, this is the deepest field on the Norwegian Continental Belt (NCS), the world’s largest platform, and the first in the NCS. The area that comes now is unique, “says Anders Opedal, executive vice president of Equinor for technology, projects and drilling.

Both Aasta Hansteen and the 482-kilometer pipeline from the field to Nyhamne have the ability to adapt to new discoveries. The first, Snefrid North, is already under construction and will be produced by the end of 2019.

Positively for natural gas

A strong and positive future for natural gas

Natural gas is well positioned in the future global energy scene and will have a positive contribution to the energy mix, Gastech said on Wednesday at the International Energy Agency.

Jean Baptiste Dubreuil, the senior natural gas analyst at the International Energy Agency, told about the role of natural gas in the coming years: “We have seen a very positive trend and growth in the recent past and we look forward, we expect this growth to remain in the medium to long term. “

Three major factors will boost the gas market growth in the near future. Among them, China is entering the global gas scene as the main source of growth in consumption.

Natural gas

The first natural gas site in Croatia was discovered in Bujavica in 1917. Production started in 1926, and gas was used to produce soot in the local factory, lighting the railway wagons and driving the car.

In 1931 gas exploitation began in the field of Gojo, which is why in 1938 a tea factory was built in Kutina. The production increased after the discovery of deposits in the fields of Okoli (1964), Legrad (1973), Bokšić (1974) and Veliki Otok (1975), and a sudden increase in production was recorded at the beginning of exploitation in Molve fields (1981) Kalinovac (1985) and Stari Gradac (1988).

Several gas deposits were discovered in the northern part of the Adriatic Sea; it is the largest field of Ivana, where production started in late 1999. In Croatia, in 2004, 2200 ∙ 106 m³ of gas was produced.

In order to meet the needs, natural gas has been imported from Russia since 1978, which currently accounts for about one-third of its consumption.
