3rd Pipeline Integrity Management System (PIMS 2018)


The pipeline transportation of petroleum, petroleum products and natural gas is a proven, safe and economic transportation method world over. In Indian context 100% of petroleum, around 70% of petroleum products and 100% of natural gas is being transported through pipelines. The issues of ensuring the integrity of such systems are therefore, of paramount interest.

Over a period of time the evolution of pipeline up keeping has reached reasonably mature level. Similarly the system and procedure for deployment of various such tools has also been well established but the major question remains whether the application of such system has been adopted by the industry across all its application. The O&M procedure of Pipeline operator, their corporate maintenance strategy and statutory requirements are required to absorb the integrity management tools, system and procedure such that they are practiced as matter of reflective action rather than application with reasoning.

A well designed PIMS programme ensures that “the pipeline gives a sustained and reliable performance throughout its life”. In practice PIMS, not only extends the life of existing pipelines, but also helps to prevent the damages to assets, human life and the environment during construction, operation & maintenance. To address the issues of available tools, system and procedure and their application for pipeline integrity management, Resonance Energy is organizing 3rd Edition of Pipeline Integrity Management System Conference cum Exhibition 2018. The conference will discuss the availability of tools, systems and statutory Regulations for pipeline integrity. The application of such tools, systems and procedures will be critically examined for petroleum, petroleum products and natural gas pipeline encompassing onshore & offshore pipeline, distribution network, installation and storage.

The exhibition brings various stakeholders together to showcase their products and services covering the value chain of entire pipeline activities. May it be, line pipe manufacturing, pipeline design and construction, coating and catholic protection, ILI, condition monitoring of non- piggable pipeline, electronic based surveillance system etc. The conference also highlights global experience relating to pipeline transportation, their maintenance and brings out the things which had gone wrong and at the place where….
