PPIM 2018 opens Call for Papers

PPIM will commence following a series of training courses held on 29-30 January, and will run alongside a major industry exhibition.

The event, organised by Clarion Technical and Tiratsoo Technical, will bring together pipeline professionals with an interest in sharing ideas about pigging for maintenance, inspection, integrity assessment, and repair with the aim of improving operations and integrity management.

In 2018, PPIM will also feature a half-day conference session on ‘challenging’ or ‘unpiggable’ pipeline issues.

Industry professionals are invited to submit proposals sharing the developments and experience in their area of specialisation.

Proposals should include a title, speaker name and full company name and address, accompanied by an abstract of no more than 200 words, along with the contact information and affiliation of the author and co-authors.

The deadline to submit abstracts is 2 October 2017, with the final paper and presentation deadline on 1 December 2017.

Those who wish to send abstracts are encouraged to submit early, as the conference program may be filled before the October deadline.
