3rd Annual Global Pipeline Integrity Management Summit is the answer to the current challenges facing the onshore pipelines industry.

Online PR News – 07-March-2013 – Abu Dhabi, UAE – The integrity of a pipe and all its working components is needed for safe and uninterrupted operation. Pipelines within the oil & gas sector play a major part in the workings of the industry, they form part of the infrastructure to move large quantities of gas, oil and petroleum from source to destination. According to a recent report by AlBawaba, Austrian oil & gas company OMV, part owned by Abu Dhabi, posted a 25 percent jump in revenue in Libya. Despite the constant debate on reserves, major projects are taking place in the oil rich regions of Iran and post the uprising in Libya.

Given the sensitivity of the regions, the integrity management and security of the pipes is really high.
