Event Details

Skystone International LP

This training seminar addresses all sections of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producer’s (CAPP’s) Guidance Document: “Competency Assessment for Upstream Oil and Gas Pipeline Installation Inspectors”,  as well as the relevant requirements from the Pressure Equipment Safety Regulations of Alberta (or equivalent for BC and SK) for pressure equipment (boilers, pressure vessels, and pressure piping). The content focuses on the role of the inspector as the client (owner) representative, and provides a basic understanding of the various code and regulatory requirements necessary for the inspector to fulfill their role from a Quality Assurance perspective. Various aspects of site safety and project management and the administrative requirements deemed necessary to assure that new installations fully satisfy the owner’s requirements and expectations will also be included.
