Jared Hebert graduated from the University of Louisiana in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering under the tutelage of Dr. Jim Garber. Upon graduating, he began working fulltime for Coastal Chemical Company as a corrosion engineer designing, implementing, and monitoring corrosion inhibitor, biocide, and scale inhibitor programs. In 2015 he earned his Master’s degree from the University of Manchester in Corrosion Control Engineering. Also in 2015, Jared began work at his current employer, Stone Energy Corporation.
For many operating companies in the Gulf of Mexico learning from data collected through non-destructive evaluation (NDE) methods such as ultrasonic thickness (UT) measurements and x-ray films is a difficult challenge. Default time-based inspection scopes, data management, and the inherent lag of time between inspection findings and responsible party awareness combine to test the effectiveness of many work scopes. This presentation will work to lay out some of the difficulties that Stone Energy has encountered in the past including historical “misses” with inspections that ultimately resulted in leaks and downtime. In addition, this work will present the system that we have created using SharePoint to close many of those traditional inspection gaps in order to minimize the reoccurrence of past mistakes. Finally, this work will briefly touch upon system enhancements that we hope to utilize in the near future.
