Important deals could be done and prepared by the exhibitors and sponsors at the 8th Pipeline Technology Conference (18-20 March 2013) because the conference and exhibition focused on the question: “Which improved solutions are offered by industry and service providers for the construction, operation and rehabilitation of onshore and offshore pipelines.”
Plant safety and operating efficiency were therefore in the center of attention. All ptc delegates appreciated the aim of making the ptc to the most important platform for international exchange of research, technology, development and proven techniques. For that reason different new instruments were implemented.
- the electronic Pipeline Technology Journal, ptj www.pipeline-journal.com
- in-depth seminars within the framework of ptc www.pipeline-conference.com/seminars
- stronger cooperation with PPIM in Houston, IPC in Calgary, Pipeline Technology in Ostend (Belgium) and Rio Pipeline in Rio de Janeiro
The all in all very successful conference was rounded off by company workshops, committee meetings and networking events. One evening, all delegates were invited to a joint dinner at the “German Oil museum” in Wietze (near Hannover).
The next ptc will take place from May 12th until May 14th 2014 in Hannover. This time the ptc will focus on the fields of construction and rehabilitation.
