The Pipeline Pigging and Integrity Management Conference and Exhibition (PPIM) is the pipeline industry’s only forum devoted exclusively to pigging for maintenance and inspection, as well as integrity evaluation and repair. Established in 1989, in 2020 PPIM is celebrating its 32nd anniversary.
The event will draw engineering management and field operating personnel from both transmission and distribution companies concerned with improved operations and integrity management.
In the conference, technical papers will cover inline inspection (ILI) data assessment, prioritisation of repairs, new tools, improving tool performance, external coating inspection with ILI tools, pig launch and receiving systems, new regulations, pipeline cleaning and much more.
The corresponding exhibition gives visitors and delegates the opportunity to visit one-on-one with the world’s top providers of pigging, ILI and integrity management services — over 150 companies will be represented.
A range of leading pipeline training courses, presented by international experts, will also be presented prior to the start of the conference and exhibition.
Registrations are now open via the event website, with an early bird discount available until 20 January 2020.
