TWI consultant David Galbraith travelled to Stavanger in Norway in September to attend ISO TC67 ‘Materials, Equipment and Offshore Structures for Petroleum, Petrochemical and Natural Gas Industries’ committee meetings.
David is an active participant in the technical committee. It is responsible for establishing standards for equipment used in all streams of the oil business, and aims to align the International Organisation for Standardization’s work programme with environmental needs and trends.
TWI influences a great number of technical and safety-related codes and standards, to support industry and wider society. The company is active in more than 130 such committees, working with organisations including the British Standards Institute, the American Petroleum Institute, the American Society for Mechanical Engineers and the National Association of Corrosion Engineers.
While in Stavanger, David also attended the 3rd Offshore Structural Reliability Conference hosted by the International Association of Oil and Gas Producers, an event designed to connect the development and understanding of standards for offshore structures and offshore structures’ reliability. Topics covered at the event included structural, mooring and foundation analysis; floating systems; and inspection, monitoring and life extension.
