ARPEL courses on Environmental Performance Benchmarking and Pipeline Integrity Management provided to technical staff of the industry

  • In the last six months of the year, YPFB hosted two ARPEL courses: Benchmarking on Environmental Performance and Pipeline Integrity Management. The first course was conducted in-company with the participation of  technicians from YPFB Corporación, YPFB Aviación, YPFB Andina, YPFB Chacho, YPFB Petroandina, YPFB Transierra, YPFB Logística, and Gas Transboliviano.

    The objective of the first edition of ARPEL course on Benchmarking on Environmental Performance was to build capabilities to develop guidelines for the generation of environmental indicators and their subsequent assessment within the company.

    This information is the key input of the benchmarking on environmental performance carried out by ARPEL on an annual basis, which presents the following indicators: oil spills in water, on the ground and total; discharges, re-injection of production water and hydrocarbon concentration in discharged water; hydrocarbons discharged as effluents from process; disposal of hazardous and non-hazardous waste, and freshwater abstracted and consumed.

    The YPFB facilities in Santa Cruz de la Sierra also received  professionals from YPFB Transporte, YPF, Pluspetrol Argentina and Peru, Gas Transboliviano and Repsol E&P Bolivia, who conducted the ARPEL course on Pipeline Integrity Management focused on "forces of nature, operational errors and actions by third parties."

    Module III aims to provide the knowledge and necessary skills to identify, diagnose, prevent, control and mitigate all the potential problems generated by these types of events.

    The accreditation program on Pipeline Integrity Management of ARPEL has three other modules: external corrosion; internal corrosion, and evaluation of mechanical integrity and risk analysis.
