Pipeline publishing partnership down to a science

Russia’s PTI has entered into an agreement with Great Southern Press, which will publish the Pipeline Science and Technology Journal.

The Pipeline Transport Institute (PTI) was established in 2009 as a hub for research and development for Russian oil pipeline operator Transneft. Its research targets every aspect of pipelines, including processes, equipment, materials and regulations in engineering, construction, operation and maintenance of oil pipelines.

PTI’s priority areas of research include, but are not limited to: methods to improve the performance and reduce energy consumption of oil transport processes; pipe steel ageing mechanisms; rheological properties of oils; the theory and practice of oil and petroleum products transport, including heavy and ultra-heavy oils; and improvement of diagnostic methods and inspections efficiency for pipeline transport facilities.

Pipeline Science and Technology Journal

The Pipeline Science and Technology Journal is a resource for scientists, hydrocarbons transportation experts, specialised commercial organisations’ representatives and government authorities and covers topics like fracture mechanics, structural integrity assessment, maintenance and life extension of pipelines.

PTI’s partnership with Great Southern Press (GSP) will help further its goal of collaborating with organisations, events and individuals from across the globe, including working on joint research projects, setting up media partnerships or accepting paper submissions for inclusion in the journal.

“The Pipeline Science and Technology Journal was formerly produced by John Tiratsoo and we are delighted to have the opportunity to continue publishing the journal for the Pipeline Transport Institute following John’s retirement,” says GSP General Manager Annie Ferguson.

“We are proud of our partnership with PTI and look forward to seeing the journal continue to grow and thrive in the coming years. If you are interested in submitting your technical paper for possible publication in the journal, please do not hesitate to get in touch.”

Opportunity for publication

PTI welcomes paper submissions from Pipelines International readers. To be eligible for inclusion, papers must contain a cover letter from the authors who completed the work and a signed agreement transferring copyright.

The submission deadline for the December edition of Pipeline Science and Technology Journal is 10 October 2019.

If you are interested in submitting a paper or receiving a free subscription to the journal contact Victoria Malinina at MalininaVN@niitnn.transneft.ru or visit www.pipeline-science.com
