2024 Inspection & Mechanical Integrity Summit

American Petroleum Institute (API), January 23, 2024


The 2024 API Inspection and Mechanical Integrity Summit was designed with you in mind. This four-day event, scheduled January 23 - 25, 2024 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX, will include an optional day of training (01/22/24) conducted by subject matter experts and three days of presentations addressing issues involved in asset condition evaluation for drilling, production systems, pipelines, terminals, refining, chemical manufacturing and storage facilities. Each day will focus on presentations relevant to upstream, midstream, downstream operation and integrity management. The Inspection and Mechanical Integrity Summit provides an opportunity to learn about new and existing industry codes and standards, hear about emerging trends from experts, and discuss new and existing issues in inspection and asset integrity management technology. Moreover, the Summit provides an opportunity for attendees to earn PDH (Professional Development Hours), maintaining their certifications and required hours.

The Summit is one of the best networking events for inspectors and other inspection support professionals in the industry today. If you've been then you already know; but if you haven't been, here are some of the top reasons you need to attend: 

  • Gain knowledge and understanding of inspection and mechanical integrity issues that operating sites have faced and solved;
  • Hear about innovative solutions to inspection and mechanical integrity issues faced by operating sites;
  • Network with like-minded professionals and integrity management leaders in your community of practice; and
  • View and evaluate solutions from dozens of exhibitors showcasing inspection and mechanical integrity products and services for the petroleum and petrochemical industry.

As stated by attendees, “The API Inspection and Mechanical Integrity Summit is the best inspection-related conference in the petroleum industry.”
