The forum for steel pipeline coatings and protection
Pipeline 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 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, new exploration and production of Oil and Gas, the increase in popularity of shale and liquefied natural gas (LNG) and the requirement for improved pipe infrastructure.
The 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, Texas, 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.
AMI has organised events in the oil and gas industry for the past 12 years and has built a strength and reputation for the delivery of these events. Using internal market research, AMI is in the prime position to offer attendees a forum to network and discuss the industry challenges, developments and opportunities.
The programme has been selected by an Advisory Board, which includes expertise from AMI and external representatives who are all leaders in their field and bring their experience and knowledge. The Advisory Board includes:
- Michele L. Ostraat - Aramco Services Company
- Somaieh Salephour - Shawcor
- Jeffrey D. Rogozinski - Sherwin-Williams Company
- Mike Surkein - Surkein Corrosion
- Samuel J. Thomas - an Independent Consultant (currently at Liberty Coatings)
- Philip D. Tooth - Tooth Pipeline Services
- David Buckby - AMI
- Rebecca Utteridge - AMI
The conference sessions will investigate the market, coatings for longevity & performance and innovative procedures for coating applications. In the session on first hand examples of industry challenges papers will include Midcoast Energy and the USDOT PHMSA as well as a panel discussion looking at the challenges ahead.
The event attracts operators, asset owners, contractors and lay engineers, raw material suppliers, pipe coaters, specifiers, machinery suppliers, researchers and testing and certification organisations.
Pipeline Coating 2019 takes place November 5-6 2019 at Hilton Houston Post Oak, Houston, Texas, USA. Full programme and booking details, click here.
