 Training Course Description
Pipeline Integrity Management System (PIMS) is the most current and modern integrated management system to insure business continuity, public and environmental safety for gas pipeline transportation operation for both distribution and transmission pipelines.  The purpose of PIMS implementation is to manage the risk to the acceptable levels.  Therefore, as a backbone of any PIMS program, the risk assessment methodology is of critically important and will be discussed in more specific details including pipeline damage mechanism, pipeline failure modes analysis, and formulation of pipeline probability of failure and consequence of failures followed by risk categorization. 
The training will also cover detail integrity assessment, inspection, maintenance and repair plan. To enhance the coverage, PIMS is usually combined with geographical information system (GIS) and monitoring system to control the pipeline right of way (ROW) more effectively. Data base management system along with pipeline management system follows specific rules, documentation, and procedures outlined by ASME B31.8S, API 1160, and ISO 9000 quality system, are therefore becomes important part for the successful pipeline risk and integrity management  implementation. In this training course, ASME 31.8S, ASME B31G, API 1160 and other related method and procedures, will be addressed and discussed.

Training Benefit
The pipeline risk and integrity management program is designed to benefit pipeline engineers, inspectors, supervisors and manager, public safety, and all stake holders by supplementing existing safety requirements with both risk based management and mechanical integrity principles that focus on safety risks in high consequence areas, such as highly populated or frequented areas.  It introduced a new perspective on pipeline operations in the most cost effective way.
