Pipeline Technology Conference

Plenary Session

Eurasian Pipeline Forum - Linking East and West

There is a long tradition of energy cooperation between Europe and Asia. For decades, Russia has been a reliable partner for the supply of crude oil and natural gas. A number of other initiatives are currently being developed.

Plenary Session

Pipelines 2050: From Fossil Fuels to Renewable Fuels?

In 2018 the European Commission adopted a strategic long-term vision for a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy by 2050. The decline in the cost of renewable energies has opened the prospect of large-scale production of green hydrogen and liquid e-fuels. Pipelines can play an important role in this process. The existing infrastructure can be used to transport the hydrogen and e-fuels, with limited adjustments and costs.

Panel Discussion

Digital Transformation and Cyber Security in the Pipeline Industry

As the energy industry is already preparing for a consistent digital transformation, another big development for improving the integrity of the systems by big data analytics will be expected. Furthermore, as manufacturers and service providers will make use of IoT tools and products, the energy industry as a critical infrastructure must also gradually improve cyber security and relevant mechanism and processes.

Panel Discussion

Illegal Tapping - Focus Regions, Monitoring and Counter Measures?

Illegal tapping and product theft are severe problems not only regarding economic aspects but also in terms of safety and integrity of the pipeline. According to recent studies, these problems exist not only in emerging markets but currently also in regions like Europe.
