We are proud to announce that we will once again be participating in the 12th edition of the Rio Pipeline Conference & Exhibition, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on 3-5 September, 2019. Join us at this event to see the depth of facets available for assets in the oil & gas and mining industries. We will demonstrate the pool of facets from which we can pull various elements together to create the perfect solution.

At the conference, our experts will present 12 technical papers on a diverse range of subjects, from flow modelling in slurry pipelines and data-driven best practice in corrosion management to crack identification and assessment.

Our key topics during the exhibition will include:

  • NIMA - A framework offering operators a way to reduce uncertainties in their integrity management process.
  • Offshore - Performing in the offshore arena means performing under extreme conditions. This applies to the people that work on platforms and vessels as well as to the assets themselves. Operating 24/7 in remote locations under harsh conditions takes its toll on both people and equipment. Therefore, experts and technologies are called for that not only cope with but excel in the face of the challenges they are presented with.
  • Onshore - More than two million kilometers of pipeline deliver product to all sorts of facilities worldwide. With pipelines being one of the most – if not the most – reliable and cost-effective way of transporting hazardous substances, their integrity management cannot be overlooked. Protecting these assets, and the environment around them, requires a holistic approach, one that allows operators to pull from a large variety of inspection techniques and integrity management experiences.
  • Mining - In the very demanding mining industry, assets need to resist highly abrasive materials. Making asset lifetime extension, minimized down time and secure operation a priority means effective integrity measures are necessary. Pipelines in the mining industry, specifically, are susceptible to a wide range of threats that include erosion, corrosion and cracking. Proper integrity management plans are needed, including in-line inspection, integrity, engineering and consultancy, and wear protection.

We look forward to seeing you at the Rio Pipeline Conference & Exhibition in September!
