Join us for September's Virtual Networking Event hosted by our Young Professionals Group (YPs). Georgiy Makedonov, FEA Engineer at VIAS, will be speaking about Pipeline Engineering - Reel-lay, and Roneet Das, Geotechnical Engineer/Consultant at the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute (NGI) in Houston, will provide a presentation on Risk Assessment - From Research to Consulting.

Reeling is the fastest and most efficient method for installing offshore pipelines. The pipe joints of a certain diameter and wall thickness are lined up and welded together onshore to make long pipe stalks before being spooled onto the reels mounted on the deck of a reel lay vessel. This presentation outlines the engineering fundamentals of the reeling process, discusses the practical aspects and applications of reeling mechanism from spoolbase fabrication to reeling process, up to the unspooling process and offshore installation.

The presentation on risk assessment will provide a brief walkthrough of the process of technical research and its application in consulting practice. The process is exemplified by a case study on probabilistic risk assessment in the field offshore geotechnical engineering.
Mark your calendar for Thursday September 3rd 5pm-6:30pm to join us for a great live-virtual discussion. This event is FREE, so invite your friends and colleagues to join.

About the Presenters

Georgiy Makedonov graduated from University of Houston with a dual MS degree in Mechanical and Subsea Engineering.
