2nd International Conference & Exhibition on Pipeline Integrity Management-2016

5-6 February 2016

The Grand hotel, New Delhi


Welcome Message

Pipeline is the most reliable, efficient, safe and economic mode of transport for oil, gas, hydrocarbons and water. Pipeline corrosion can result in huge monetary losses and create safety hazards to people, assets and environment. The integrity of pipelines is a basic concern for pipeline operators, and therefore, the ability to detect anomalies due to corrosion, erosion, milling and mechanical damage shall be of significant interest to the operators. A systematic Pipeline Integrity Management Program can extend the life of the existing pipelines and maintain adequate safeguards for human life and the environment.

Towards achieving these, it is imperative to promote interactions between people and organizations to share their knowledge & experience. Pipeline Integrity Management 2016 will provide an ideal platform, where experts and leading industry players share their insights on how to improve corrosion control measures to effectively minimize internal / external corrosion and other damages. Your involvement at this premier event is essential for the success of Pipeline Integrity Management 2016 to accomplish our mission “Maintaining safety & reliability of the pipelines”. Be part of Pipeline Integrity Management 2016 to discover best practices in minimizing and controlling corrosion in your assets. We cordially invite you to join us in New Delhi in February, 2016.

Best Wishes
