Reynolds Wrap Up: Highlights from the API Subcommittee on Inspection and Mechanical Integrity (SCIMI) Meeting at the Fall API Standards Meeting

By John Reynolds, Principal Consultant at Intertek. December 29, 2016

Inspection Summit Planning Meeting

  • The next API Inspection Summit will once again be held the week of January 30 – February 2, 2017 at the Galveston Convention Center; a full program is now up on the Summit website with nearly 200 presentations, 12 panel discussions, and 14 optional training courses planned.
  • The Summit has grown in attendance nearly 30% each time it is held and we expect that to be the case again in 2017. The quality and quantity of information presented on asset integrity management, inspection/NDE, corrosion/materials issues, and engineering analysis continues to be very highly rated by attendees and that critique is spreading by word of mouth. Plus the exhibit hall is nearly sold out with a wide array of technology and service providers presenting the latest in available tools and methodologies.
  • Inspectioneering Journal will once again be your primary source for advance information on the Inspection Summit.

The name of the Subcommittee on Inspection has been changed to Subcommittee on Inspection and Mechanical Integrity to better describe the full scope of our activities. The SCIMI covers a full range of fixed equipment mechanical integrity subjects, including inspection topics.
