American Petroleum Institute (API) Piping Inspection Code 570 Inspection, Repair, Alteration, and Rerating of In-Service Piping Systems is recognized and used with confidence worldwide. The Piping Inspector Certification Program (PICP) is developed for the continual high level of efficiency and safety through emphasizing professional credibility and process integrity.
Process piping system is one of the critical production assets in process industry. Organizations recognize the need to maintain authorized inspection agency and technically assess qualified piping engineers and inspectors to ensure facilities are at top performance. Therefore, API 570 certification is one of the most sought after professional competency that enables inspectors to be actively involved in the improvement of industry & environmental health and safety performance, reinforcement management control, compliance of inspection capabilities.
This 5 day Piping Inspector course is based on API 570/574, API RP 577/ 578, ASME B16.5/ B31.3 and ASME BPVC Section V/ Section IX. It is to promote the recognition of fitness-for-service concepts to evaluate in-service degradation of piping system. With Mr. Uday Kale’s extensive involvements in the facilities inspection, as well as his practical coaching and mentoring approaches, this course not only prepare the candidates to pass API 570 examination with confident, it will also advance the appreciation of piping facilities and thus to broaden the technical knowledge base in order to avoid unplanned shutdown and reduce expenses!
Each attendee must bring a Laptop computer with Microsoft operating system and Scientific Calculator
This course will specifically benefit Engineers, Supervisors, and Managers from the following disciplines:
and technical personnel with 2-3 years of experience in the management and planning of inspection and maintenance activities of piping system at upstream oil & gas facilities, refineries, process plants and petrochemical facilities.
President, Zick Technologies (Since 10/93).
Petroleum engineering consulting and software development, specializing in the area of reservoir fluid phase behavior modeling. References available on request. Key achievements:
-Developed numerous equation-of-state and black-oil fluid characterizations for various major oil companies and as a sub-contractor for Pera A/S.
-Recommended phase behavior experimentation and modeling guidelines for several major oil companies.
-Wrote PhazeComp, a new, state-of-the-art program from Zick Technologies for equation-of-state phase behavior modeling, reservoir fluid characterization, and the robust, efficient calculation of minimum miscibility conditions.
-Wrote Streamz, unique Petrostreamz A/S software for translating, manipulating, and managing vast quantities of fluid stream information.
-Designed and helped write Pipe-It, unique Petrostreamz A/S software for managing and manipulating petroleum resources, processes, and projects.
