Understanding the CCD/IOW Implementation Process

The Equity Engineering Group, Inc., November 5, 2021

Webinar Overview

API RP 970 provides recommendations on developing, implementing, and maintaining corrosion control documents (CCDs); however, the recommendations generally remain at the owner’s discretion. Refineries and petrochemical and chemical process facilities all benefit from implementing integrity operating windows (IOWs) and CCDs to prevent failures, optimize production, and extend an asset’s life span.

Inspectioneering has teamed up with E²G | The Equity Engineering Group, Inc. to bring you Understanding the CCD/IOW Implementation Process, a 60-minute webinar presented by Brian Jack, Principal Engineer at E²G. This presentation discusses how CCDs and IOWs support the five key elements of a strong mechanical integrity program, as well as how identifying unit corrosion loops and documenting expected damage mechanisms are critical for long-term inspection planning. When combined with normal and process upset conditions, CCDs/IOWs can become a benchmark for plant reliability programs and turnaround planning improvements.

Specific topics discussed include:

  • Why API code-required inspection intervals are not enough to prevent incidents
  • IOW program goals, including exceedances, exceptions, and clarifications
  • CCD project goals, deliverables, inputs, exceptions, and clarifications
  • Benefits of CCDs/IOWs to comprehensive mechanical integrity programs

About the Speaker

Brian Jack, Principal Engineer II at The Equity Engineering Group, has been involved with materials and corrosion issues in the refining and chemical process industries since 1981. His 35-year pre-E²G career was roughly split between Chevron and Phillips 66. The Chevron and Phillips 66 work experience provided a good mix of in-plant and corporate assignments, enabling a highly experienced and practical approach to solving materials and corrosion problems. Prior to joining E²G in 2016, Mr. Jack served as the Chief Materials and Corrosion Engineer for the Phillips 66 Refining System (14 refineries worldwide). In this role, Mr. Jack led system-wide mechanical integrity improvement efforts, trained numerous inspectors and engineers, and helped solve a wide array of refinery corrosion and metallurgy problems. Mr. Jack has been active in industry consensus standards organizations such as NACE International and the American Petroleum Institute for over 35 years and has served as a working member and in lead roles in these organizations.
