Brisbane hosts pipeliner masterclass

Kicking off at the Pullman Brisbane in King George Square, the APGA and the Plastics Industry Pipe Association (PIPA) of Australia exhibition and seminar on CSG showcased the latest in plastic pipe technology, discussed the ever-growing plastic pipe industry and what steps need to be taken to ensure its growth.

The seminar provided a forum for robust discussion on the state of the industry, with presentations including Emergency response on large bore gathering networks by iPipe Services Managing Director David Nichols; V4 update – where we are heading from Santos Senior Staff Pipeline Integrity Engineer Lloyd Nicholls-Goffey; and, CSG – Queensland and beyond from QGC’s Hugh Luckhurst-Smith.

A number of those who attended the APGA/PIPA Seminar and Exhibition were also present at the APGA Brisbane Dinner, held across King George Square at the Brisbane Hilton.

Once again, the Queensland crowd turned up in numbers and everyone had the opportunity to have a few refreshments and catch-up with colleagues and friends before the formal proceedings got underway.

The evening’s speech was provided by Central Petroleum Managing Director Richard Cottee, who delivered his views on the state of Queensland’s industry, the role of Central Petroleum in developing the Northern Territory and a range topics in between.

Delivered with the vigour and style that Mr Cottee has long been associated with, the speech was often interrupted with laughter and applause – especially when he gave his views on Queensland’s southern neighbours.

The festivities continued long after the dinner ended.

The dinner was sponsored by Nacap and LandPartners.
