 Incident events caused by the failure of pipelines are not rarely followed by devastating impact on life, reputation, production and environment.In spite of this, pipeline experts have always concentrated on designing lines that work instead of lines that are fail-proof. The recent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico shook industry players who then scrambled to ensure theintegrity of their pipelines were maintained. What they did not anticipate was the lack of knowledge on the best way on how to handle the prevailing problems and find the right solutions.

 
Integrity management starts from the foundation; designing followed by inspection and monitoring; to ensure the life-cycle of pipelines are maximised. Nevertheless, developing and applying a successful pipeline integrity programme is an intricate process. It is not uncommon that in the chase to save costs while maximising productivity, short term solutions have been favoured. With many major pipelines almost completing their life-cycle, the extension of pipeline life is a major challenge.
 
The Pipeline Integrity Management Summit has been exclusively tailored
to address critical pipeline integrity issues and latest technology available
for your pipelines from design to inspection, corrosion mitigation as well as
methods to handle ageing pipelines. This summit will unravel insights into
the best pipeline integrity management methods and implementation.
