January 2010

The first issue of World Pipelines in 2010 features a pipeline pigging review, in which GE PII Pipeline Solutions, T.D. Williamson and Galaxy Brushes each discuss an important aspect of pipeline pigging. A Nord Stream update gives the lowdown on progress for the project, and the regional review focuses on Russia and it’s increasing exports to Asia. Elsewhere in the issue, Gordon Cope looks at how the pipeline precommissioning sector is faring; A.Hak discusses no-dig techniques; and an article from Acoustic Systems describes new leak detection technology.
