Pigging and integrity conference: call for papers
The pipeline industry’s only forum devoted exclusively to pigging for maintenance and inspection, as well as pipeline integrity evaluation and repair, each year brings together in Houston engineering management and field operating personnel from both transmission and distribution companies concerned with improved operations and integrity management. The 2007 event, on 14-15 February, to be held at the Marriott Westchase hotel, will build on the success of the 2006 event, and will be the 19th in the annual series organized by Clarion Technical Conferences and Global Pipeline Monthly.
The organizers are now inviting contributions to the proceedings of this vibrant international forum. Attention to pipelines has never been more intense, as their criticality to infrastructure and the incidence of failure due to ageing and other factors have increased. Papers will be published in a printed volume distributed to the conference delegates and will be indexed and abstracted through important online databases such as Dialog, Petroleum Abstracts, and others.
To take advantage of this high-quality professional opportunity to address an important industry peer group, authors are asked to send their proposal for a presentation, accompanied by an abstract and the author’s complete contact information and affiliation, to John Tiratsoo, Editor, Global Pipeline Monthly, PO Box 21, Beaconsfield, HP9 1NN, UK, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details of the event, and the accompanying exhibition, are now available on-line at www.clarion.org.
