The Unpiggable Pipeline Solutions Forum (UPSF) will take place in Houston, Texas on 12-13 June 2019.
UPSF 2019 will continue to address capabilities and guidance concerning tools for corrosion and mechanical damage inspection of ‘unpiggable’ oil, gas and hazardous liquids pipelines.
This year, the focus will be on the capabilities of existing technologies as well as those in research and development.
The program will highlight advances and best practices in aboveground remote assessments, externally mounted assessment tools like guided-wave or MFL, and combinations with direct assessment methodologies.
There will also be a special focus – particularly on segments that cannot be taken out of service – on live access techniques combined with low-flow restriction robotic and wire line powered internal inspection tools.
