TFAP opens registrations

Registrations are available for the Technology for Future and Ageing Pipelines (TFAP) Conference, taking place on 10–12 April in Gent, Belgium.

Formerly known as Rudi’s Pipeline Technology Conference and held in Ostend, TFAP is co-organised by Tiratsoo Technical, UK, and the Lab. Soete of Universiteit Gent.

The conference is aimed at sharing knowledge and will feature the latest achievements relating to the assessment, use and maintenance of ageing high-pressure (cross-country/offshore) transmission and ageing low-pressure distribution gas and oil pipeline systems.

A parallel theme will explore the latest technology for materials and welding for new pipelines to ensure they are designed for a maximum effective operational lifetime.

Three training courses will precede the conference, on 9-10 April: ‘Defect assessment in pipelines’, presented by Dr Phil Hopkins; ‘Pipeline repair methods, hot tapping, and in-service welding’, presented by Bill Bruce; and ‘Advanced pipeline risk assessment’, presented by Kent Muhlbauer.

Attendance at TFAP will be of value to technical consultants and managers, engineers, academics, project managers, heads of operations, and CEOs and managing directors.

Full conference registration starts at €1,150 (US$1,363.27), if registered by 15 February 2018.

Company members of European Pipeline Research Group, Pigging Products and Services Association, and Pipeline Research Council International are entitled to the ‘Professional Membership’ registration discount for the first two individual registrations per company, at a cost of €1,080 (US$1,280.29).
