IPEIA 2018!!
February 23, 2018

We are, once again, thrilled to be participating as a Gold sponsor in the 2018 IPEIA Conference in Banff March 7 – 9th. The conference website can be found here:  IPEIA

The IPEIA Conference began over 20 ago years and has become an internationally recognized annual conference to gather Pressure Equipment Integrity industry groups together to further improve best practices and provide education for those committed to this specialty in the energy sector. There are a number of ways that conference attendees can engage with one of our 20 Acuren representatives participating in the conference:

Presentation – Fitness for Service Assessment Applications for API Storage Tanks

Our very own Bill Nixon, P. Eng. – General Manager, Engineering will be delivering a presentation this year where he will present some of our recent successes with fitness for service assessment applications for API storage tanks. In summary, he will discuss how API 653 permits the use of a fitness for service methodology to eliminate costly, and often unneeded, repairs and testing. This typically involves a fracture toughness (API 579) and stress analysis assessment supported with finite element techniques. He will focus on three typical separate case studies as applicable to most vertical fuel storage tanks:
1) Shell buckling and deformation.
2) Excessive edge settlement and/or out of plane deflection.
3) Hydrostatic test exemptions.

Bill Nixon is a Professional Engineer, who has been with Acuren since 1993. He has worked primarily in the fields of nondestructive testing, materials/welding engineering, and API fitness for service supporting the oil and gas, mining and power generation industries. He currently holds a variety of industry certifications, including CSA Level 3, CGSB Level 3 (RT/UT/MT/PT) and API 570/653. Bill currently serves as Acuren’s General Manager for Engineering Services for North America.

His presentation is scheduled for Thursday March 8th at 9:50 am.
