Fitness-For-Service (FFS) assessments are quantitative engineering evaluations that are performed to demonstrate the structural integrity of an in-service component that may contain a flaw or damage. This training course is designed to give a detailed discussion of the subject of Fitness For Service concepts (FFS) with emphasis on the basic degradation mechanism and its consequences aspect.
It presents a thorough understanding of how the disciplines of material science, stress analysis, NDT and inspection practices can be applied for assessing the present structural integrity of the component, and deciding its fitness for continued service as well as the projected remaining life. This course covers the analytical methods and their applications are explained with numerous case studies. In order to suit the course to participants with or without a FFS background, the course will be delivered such a way that most of technical terms and both code statements and examples will clarify concepts.
Pressure Vessel/ Piping/ Tank design engineers, process engineers, plant operating engineers and managers, Chemical/ mechanical engineers who are involved in integrity assessment of Columns, Vessels, tanks, piping etc. Also recommended for the Design engineers, Inspection persons and maintenance engineers involved in Repair, maintenance and trouble shooting of plant equipments in Refining, Petrochemical and Chemical industries. Individual certification of API 510/ 570/ 653 will be an added advantage to the participants

Senior Principal Research Engineer, ARCO Oil and Gas Company (9/83–5/91).
Developed expertise in reservoir fluid phase behavior, phase behavior modeling, compositional reservoir simulation, and relative permeability modeling. Designed and analyzed PVT experiments. Created equation-of-state reservoir fluid characterizations. Developed ARCO’s phase behavior modeling software and relative permeability modeling software. Helped develop several of ARCO’s compositional and limited compositional reservoir simulators. Key achievements:
-Discovered the true, condensing/vaporizing mechanism of oil displacement by enriched hydrocarbon gases.
-Represented ARCO on the Prudhoe Bay co-owners’ Enhanced Oil Recovery Task Force for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Designed and analyzed most of the PVT and slim-tube experiments for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Created the equation-of-state reservoir fluid characterization adopted by the operating companies for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Developed the miscibility pressure correlations used by the facility operators for the Prudhoe Bay Miscible Gas Project.
-Developed EOSPHASE, a then state-of-the-art program for equation-of-state phase behavior modeling, reservoir fluid characterization, and the robust, efficient calculation of minimum miscibility conditions.
-Developed SLIMTUBE, a special-purpose, equation-of-state simulator for slim-tube displacements.
-Developed new, compositionally-consistent, three-phase relative permeability models for ARCO’s compositional simulators and wrote data-fitting software for those models.
-Developed the phase behavior and relative permeability routines for a new, limited compositional reservoir simulator and assisted on other aspects of it.
-Continually added improvements to various in-house reservoir simulators.
-Regularly taught in-house courses on the phase behavior of miscible gas displacement processes.
