World’s leading pipeline minds head to Australia

Approximately 160 of the international industry’s leading researchers and engineers gathered in Brisbane, Australia this week for an important event.

The 22nd Joint Technical Meeting on Pipeline Research took place from 29 April to Friday 3 May, giving attendees the opportunity to share pipeline design, construction, operation, and integrity knowledge and ideas with their international peers.

Hosted by the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association (APGA) for the third time, the biennial event also feature participants from the Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) and the European Pipeline Research Group (EPRG).

A total of 36 technical papers were presented during the event, showcasing some of the recent key technological developments in the industry.

APGA CEO Steve Davies said the meeting would draw prominent industry representatives from around the world.

“Through APGA’s Research and Standards Committee we also join in a knowledge sharing agreement with the leading European and North American bodies: PRCI and EPRG,” he said.

“The three groups meet every second year to discuss their latest research at the Joint Technical Meeting. This sharing of knowledge benefits us all.”
