Free Webinar Shores Up Offshore

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Comment | More

The harsh environment of the offshore gas and oil industry has led to new technologies and methods to overcome maintenance challenges.

These developments, such as ultra high-pressure (UHP) waterjetting for surface preparation, are discussed in "Addressing the Maintenance Challenge," a free webinar to be held from 11 a.m. to noon ET (4 to 5 p.m. CET) Sept. 25.

The discussion will include UHP wastewater treatment and managing UHP water offshore.

The webinar is part of the JPCL/SSPC Webinar Education Series.

What You'll Learn

This webinar will provide an understanding of the potential benefits and main challenges of UHP, including its effect on coating selection.

It includes an overview of the most common coating selection tools and the limits of conventional accelerated laboratory testing approaches in the context of UHP. Additionally, there will be information about UHP wastewater treatment methods for an environmentally safe and economical way to manage UHP water on offshore platforms.

The session will be presented by Joao Azevedo, Oil & Gas Market Director (EMEA Region) for Sherwin-Williams Protective and Marine Coatings, and product manager Sandra Ball.

Sherwin-Williams Protective & Marine is the sponsor of the webinar.

Participants may register here free.
