AMI have organised events in
the energy industry for the past 12 years and have built a strength and
reputation for the delivery of these events. Pipeline Coating Houston is just
one of the events in this portfolio which includes Pipeline Coating Vienna, Field
Joint Coating London and Oil & Gas Engineering in London, Asia and Houston.
Using internal market research, AMI is in the prime position to offer attendees
a forum to network and discuss the industry challenges, developments and
“This was a wonderful experience. The Pipeline Coating conference provided lots of knowledge and opportunities to meet new people. Looking forward to being back.”

NEW FOR 2019
Pipeline Coating is focused on polymeric coatings and their protection for steel pipelines for the energy industries, including O&G, water and other energy sources.
With the oil price stabilising,
new exploration and production of O&G, the increase in popularity of shale
and LNG and the requirement for improved pipe infrastructure, this event
provides delegates the chance to participate in two days of conference
presentations with numerous networking opportunities.
With AMI expertise and the
assistance of an industry Advisory Board, the event features a two-day
technical programme that will explore market trends, raw materials, coating
technology & process, inspection & testing, product & material
innovations and research. The challenges and solutions discussed will benefit
all attendees; whether they are in pipe production, factory or field-applied
coatings, pipe maintenance due to corrosion, rehabilitation and repair, testing
and safety as well as learning through case studies.
The event attracts
representatives from across the supply chain from pipe mills to pipe owners and
operators including contractors, raw material suppliers, pipe coaters,
engineers and specifiers, machinery suppliers, researchers and testing and

coatings for steel pipelines create a complex challenge for the steel pipe
industry. From factory and in-situ coating procedures and machinery, to a
trained and skilled workforce, coaters must also consider that the materials
need to offer performance and longevity through extreme conditions (CUI) while
providing anti-corrosion properties, all the time conforming to local, national
and global standards. With the oil price recovering much of the ground lost
towards the end of 2018, the industry is seeing new exploration and production
of O&G, an increase in popularity of shale and LNG for cleaner energy and
the requirement for improved pipe infrastructure.
Pipeline Coating conference is focused on polymeric coatings and their
protection for offshore and onshore steel pipelines for the oil & gas and
water industries. Taking place in Houston, TX, the event opens its doors on
November 5-6, 2019. The event provides delegates the chance to participate in
two days of technical and commercial conference presentations with a multitude
of networking opportunities.
