Pipeline Weld Strength Overmatching in Practice:

In response to the 2020 CER issued Safety Advisory SA 2020-01 - Girth Weld Area Strain-Induced Failures: Pipeline Design, Construction, and Operation Considerations, the industry has been required to look at weld matching in a different light from design, construction and maintenance.

Material manufacturing techniques have evolved all around the world and the materials often have a wider range of properties and as-welded results. The notion that the weld is always stronger than the parts being joined needs to be evaluated with more scrutiny creating the need for the design, construction, and pipeline maintenance to be adjusted.

This event will focus on the concerns identified in the Safety Advisory SA 2020-01, the testing ATCO performed following the Advisory and the implementation of changes addressing Weld Strength Overmatching.

Speaker Biographies:

Nick Khotenko, P. Eng, has worked with ATCO’s Natural Gas Division since 2013. He has spent most of his time as a Project Engineer managing high pressure natural gas pipeline projects including new pipeline installations, upgrades, and acquisitions managing entire project lifecycles. Nick was also involved in all aspects of construction for two large-scale Natural Gas Pipeline Projects from selection/bid process, constructability/technical review with engineering to problem-solving during construction. Much time was spent improving construction technical specifications, form templates, and engineered designs. More recently, Nick has been focusing on weld quality assurance and improving welding practices. Nick is a professional Engineer with a BSc degree in Engineering from University of Alberta. Nick is also the current Vice Chair of Construction for Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) - Design, Material and Construction Committee.

Kelsey Coulter, P.Eng, has been involved in the welding industry for 17 years when she started her apprenticeship and achieved her Red Seal Journeyman Welding Certification. She completed the Welding Engineering Technology Program at SAIT, got her Bachelor of Science in General Engineering-Welding Option at Montana Tech and gained experience as an Inspector and Project Engineer in various sectors of the Energy Industry. In 2016, Kelsey started at ATCO coordinating and managing inspections and assessments on historical assets. She is currently the Supervisor of ATCO’s Weld Quality Assurance team focusing on governance and continuous improvement of ATCO’s welding and fabrication practices. Kelsey is also the Vice-Chair of the CEPA Foundation Welding Best Practices Committee which is currently in its inception.
