Join the Young Pipeliners Association of Canada (YPAC) for a webinar to learn more about the importance of pipeline coatings and their role in preventing corrosion. Topics discussed will include an introduction to Canadian regulations regarding pipeline coatings with a particular focus on design considerations of coatings selection for below-ground/submerged pipelines vs. above-ground/atmospheric exposed pipelines. New pipeline construction practices will be compared to maintenance activities to highlight selection of coating technologies that are fit for purpose.   

  • Date & Time – May 18, 2021 from 5:15pm – 6:15pm (MST)
  • Location: Zoom Webinar
  • Cost: Free (Advance Registration Required)

About the Speakers:

Dr. Haralampos (Harry) Tsaprailis’ coating experience began over 20 years ago while researching metallic coatings for his doctoral thesis in physical electrochemistry at the University of Calgary (Canada).  Harry continued to develop his knowledge in corrosion and coatings during his employment at S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc., Det Norske Veritas, and Innotech.  In 2015, Harry joined Enbridge-Liquid Pipelines (LP) as the coatings specialist accountable for the company’s above-ground painting, below-ground coating, and internal lining specifications.  The Enbridge-LP business unit delivers more than 3 million barrels of crude oil and liquids every day using a network of over 27,000 km of pipe and over 500 aboveground oil storage tanks.
