No comments

April 25, 2017 - April 27, 2017, Hyatt Regency Hill Country

API’s 2017 Pipeline Conference and Control Room Forum will take place April 25 - 27, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency Hill Country in San Antonio, Texas.  The 1 1/2 day conference will bring together decision makers from across the globe to discuss the most challenging issues facing the pipeline industry. It will also afford an opportunity for students participating in PHMSA’s CAAP (Competitive Academic Agreement Program) to share on their efforts. Between sessions, Pipeline Conference attendees can review posters detailing the research, as well as visit with the students completing the work. PHMSA launched CAAP in 2013 to provide funding for academic research and provide tomorrow’s pipeline safety workforce with an early opportunity to contribute safety solutions. In its first two years alone, CAAP has provided more than $1.5 million dollars to student researchers at the undergraduate, graduate, and PhD levels.

API will hold a Leak Detection Workshop following the Pipeline Conference. The 2017 Leak Detection Workshop will give attendees the opportunity to learn about developing, maintaining, and managing a robust pipeline leak detection program, as detailed in API RP 1175. The workshop will open with an executive panel that will highlight the importance of each company having a reliable and effective leak detection program. This will be followed by sessions on several subjects, including key aspects of API RP 1175 and how to perform a gap analysis to evaluate the effectiveness of a leak detection program. This workshop will provide the opportunity to learn from industry experts and engage with peers about their best practices. It is designed for individuals who are involved with leak detection programs (managers or safety/compliance staff), but is open to anyone who wishes to attend. The workshop is available at an additional fee.
