Reynold's Wrap Up: Highlights from the API Subcommittee on Inspection and Mechanical Integrity (SCIMI) Meetings at the Spring 2017 API Standards Meeting

By John Reynolds, Principal Consultant at Intertek. June 19, 2017

Inspection Summit Planning Meeting

  • The next API Inspection Summit will once again be held the week of January 28 – 31, 2019 at the Galveston Convention Center; initial planning meetings occurred during this meeting in May.
  • The Sixth Inspection Summit held last January was attended by over 1400 people (another record).  The feedback forms indicated that it was once again a big success and highly appreciated by attendees. 
  • The exhibit hall was fully subscribed and we had another record number of presentations (nearly 200) on a wide variety of technical topics with regard to fixed equipment mechanical integrity, corrosion and inspection for all three industry segments (downstream/ midstream/ upstream). 
  • Twelve panel discussions on various “hot topics” were conducted including Q&A with the audience.  Fourteen optional FEMI training courses were conducted on the Monday preceding the Summit.  They were also well attended.
  • Inspectioneering Journal will once again be your primary source for advance information on the 2019 Inspection Summit.  Stay tuned.
