The book illustrates many defects that can be found in high-pressure steel pipelines and pipeline coatings. In addition, it advises on the probable cause and importance of the defects and comments on the appropriate corrective actions. The defect encyclopedia quickly established itself as a useful reference guide for pipeline engineers, and in 2017, the book format was updated and first published under the ROSEN brand name as “The Encyclopedia of Pipeline Defects”. We now ask the pipeline community for contributions to the next edition.
To become part of the new edition please follow these three steps:
All submissions must be completed up to 31 July 2023. A panel of Competence Club experts will screen the pictures, for quality and industrial relevance. The ones selected will be submitted to a public vote, to be held from 1st to 8th of August, 2023. The winner will be announced by ROSEN during Rio Pipeline 2023.
Note the entries do not need to be referenced to a specific asset. All pictures selected for publication will be credited.
The contributors will receive a copy of the Encyclopedia.
