Grant is an experienced chartered engineer who has been working in the oil and gas industry since 1994. He is the head of Jee’s integrity management discipline and has an in-depth knowledge of the field and its associated areas, including internal and external inspection. Working closely with a number of major operators, Grant provides technical support and pipeline technical authority services, advising on all aspects of design, construction, integrity, repair and the operation of pipeline systems.
Grant has completed a number of integrity management related projects, including creating riser inspection strategies, inspection tool and stuck pig contingency plans, corrosion management strategies and pipeline lifetime extension studies.
With his vast technical understanding and dynamic presentation skills, Grant also presents Jee’s ‘Failure of deep-water pipelines and risers’ course around the world, successfully developing delegates’ competencies.
1. What are you looking forward to explaining to the audience?
The webinar will discuss the consequences of ineffective subsea pipeline integrity management and why it is so important. I am looking forward to sharing my experience with the audience and hope the lessons learnt will prove to be a useful insight for oil and gas operators and service providers.
2. What is the most interesting thing you’ve done within your current role?
As part of my role, I also present Jee’s ‘Failure of deepwater pipelines and risers’ technical training course around the world. Utilising case studies of real pipeline failures, this course looks at integrity management issues affecting deepwater risers and flowlines. Teaching provides a fantastic opportunity to travel, but more importantly a chance to give back to the industry and pass on lessons learned, improving industry standards and best practice.
3. What is the ideal outcome you would like from doing the webinar?
We aim to provide attendees with an overview of subsea pipelines integrity management best practice in addition to examining the primary threats and lessons learnt. The webinar will also discuss how lifetime extension can maximise the profitability of mature assets and how integrity management is applied to decommissioned pipelines. I hope that all attendees go away with a better understanding of pipeline integrity management which will help them in their roles going forwards.
4. Where is your favourite place in the world and why?
My favourite place in the whole world is my home. No matter where in the world you travel to and the experiences gained during these travels, it’s always nice to get home!
Grant Adam will be presenting the Jee webinar ‘Lessons Learned in Subsea Pipeline Integrity Management’ on the 24th February at 3PM London / 10AM New York. Register here.
