Registrations still available for PPIM 2017

Registrations are still available for the Pipeline Pigging & Integrity Management Conference (PPIM) which will take place later this month.

The 29th PPIM will be held in Houston, Texas, on 27 February – 2 March 2017.

It is the international pipeline industry’s only forum devoted exclusively to pigging for maintenance and inspection, as well as pipeline integrity evaluation.

As in previous years, the event will draw engineering-management and field-operating personnel from both transmission and distribution companies concerned with improved operations and integrity management.

The 51 technical papers at the international conference will cover pipeline cleaning, ILI data assessment, prioritisation of repairs, new tools, improving tool performance, external coating inspection with ILI tools, pig-launch and -receiving systems, new regulations, and much more.

With 165 companies represented, the PPIM Exhibition offers the perfect opportunity to visit one-on-one with the world’s top providers of pigging, ILI, and integrity management services.

In addition to the Conference and Exhibition, a number of training courses will be held as part of the program.

Covering everything from advanced pipeline risk management and new pipeline regulations to pipeline repair methods and managing cracks and seam weld anomalies on pipelines, these training courses are unique to PPIM and are not to be missed.

A new addition to the 2017 program is a half-day briefing on pipeline pigging integrity in non-technical language. This class is designed for attendees who want to familiarise themselves with all there is to know about pipeline pigging in an easy-to-understand way without a lot of the confusing technical jargon.
