PRCI will be hosting its annual Research Exchange Meeting on 5 - 6 March 2019 at the Royal Sonesta Houston Galleria in Houston, Texas. The Research Exchange Meeting (REX) is scheduled each year to provide PRCI member companies, its key research partners, and external stakeholders with a report on important research results and provide a forum for an exchange of ideas. This event is the key knowledge transfer window for PRCI and will provide the attendees an opportunity to learn how to move the results into practice.
REX2019 will include two days of presentations on Tuesday and Wednesday, covering a variety of safety and integrity management topics, including but not limited to, corrosion assessment; addressing cracks and dents; right of way monitoring; design considerations; material characteristics and properties; inline inspection performance and enhancement; NDE technology enhancements and validation; leak detection; welding; human factors; and subsea research. The event will host special workshops on the development of a Pipeline Datahub for the industry and welding management. In addition to the technical presentations, there will be networking opportunities and receptions for attendees to engage with industry colleagues.
Following the Research Exchange, the Pipeline Technical Committees will meet for working meetings on Thursday 7 March and Friday 8 March. These meetings are limited to PRCI members and invited guests only. These meetings require a separate registration from the Research Exchange and PRCI committee members will receive a follow-up registration notice.
