Technical sessions

Hear from our experts

Wood Group actively promotes ingenuity and new technologies. Our aim is to deliver transformational solutions to support projects across the full asset life cycle; helping to solve operational, safety, integrity and efficiency challenges.

Wood Group’s technical sessions are just one way that we are engaging with our customers and peers to collaboratively address these issues. Through these events, we share good practice and look for smarter ways of working.

Integrity Series

Asset integrity spans many facets and affects all industries. Wood Group’s capability in this area is extensive: from market-leading technologies that manage integrity issues, to risk-based inspections and ongoing field support; we identify, assess and respond to our customers’ integrity issues safely, quickly and effectively.

In our Integrity Series we shine a spotlight on some of our specialist capabilities, detailing some of the tried and tested methods we use to mitigate the problems that keep you up at night. Join us as we explore some of the industry’s hottest topics in integrity right now.


Next session:

Join our free webinar on Wednesday, 27 June to learn how Wood is applying a novel approach to assess risks and optimise inspection activities in subsea integrity management programmes; reducing uncertainties, cutting costs and increasing data confidence.

Due to the remote nature of subsea oil and gas fields, there can be uncertainties in the quality and effectiveness of risk assessments. These uncertainties are observed when assigning probability and consequence of failure, in addition to assessing the effectiveness of risk reduction measures.

Existing risk assessment methodologies can also overlook new observations from inspection campaigns.

Using a case study from a subsea field in the Gulf of Mexico, this webinar will present a new, field-validated approach to managing subsea integrity.

By the end of this session you will learn how to:

  • Assess and manage risks more accurately and efficiently
  • Optimise inspection campaigns
  • Combine various risk management techniques to minimise uncertainties
  • Use conventional techniques, advanced statistical assessments and inspection data to reduce integrity risks

This webinar is relevant to anyone with an interest in subsea, design engineering and integrity management. The session will take approximately 60 minutes.
