SSPC Pipeline Coatings Inspector

SSPC Pipeline Coatings Inspector

Pipelines are our energy lifeline, making almost every daily activity possible. Pipelines play a huge role in everyday lives and are essential to the worlds industries.

There are around 40,000 kilometres of pipeline in the UK and over 2 million kilometres of pipeline in the USA. Pipelines cover all parts of the globe carrying everything from oil and gas to fresh water, diesel and petrol to jet fuel.

Pipelines are essential in transporting water around the globe as well as removing sewage away from homes. Steel pipelines are used to transport oil and gas which has been collected from its natural residence to the refineries and further to suppliers and distributors.

Often the contents of these pipes can be hazardous and corrosive and corrosion prevention methods are required to ensure the pipeline stays in a safe condition with little risk to people and environment. This training course looks at the corrosion protection of steel pipelines with the use of protective coatings and cathodic protection and the duties and responsibilities of the pipeline coatings inspector.
