About this Technical Webinar:

Synopsis | The energy industry is evolving quicker than it has for decades. Sources of generation are changing, and new connections are being made to the transmission network resulting in substantially different patterns in electricity circuits. It is now more common to have oil, gas & water pipelines in proximity to renewable power generation facilities or electricity circuits. Historically there has been a recognition within the industry that electromagnetic interference is a credible threat to pipelines and people. However, the recent experience indicated that electromagnetic interference and damage risks to pipelines are not necessarily envisioned by many projects. There is a strong need to open up the dialogue between different operators and organisations to ensure safety and meet legislative requirements. No one owns all data/assets and resources in the shared corridor, hence partnering is essential to mitigate safety hazards on pipelines. This webinar will address the growing problem of electromagnetic interference, issues, assessment, and management/mitigation.
