PPIM 2018 Call for Papers Now Open

Clarion Technical Conferences, July 7, 2017

As the industry's only forum devoted exclusively to pipeline pigging for maintenance and inspection, as well as pipeline integrity assessment and repair, PPIM 2018 will once again bring together engineering management and field operating personnel from both transmission and distribution pipeline companies concerned with improved operations and integrity management.

We hope you will take advantage of this extraordinary professional opportunity and send your proposal for a presentation at the 30th conference. Proposals should include an abstract accompanied by the author’s and co-author's complete contact information and affiliation. Final deadline for Abstract submissions is October 2, 2017.

The knowledge and technology to improve pipeline performance is expanding constantly, and we hope you will consider sharing developments and experience in your area of specialization. It’s never been more important: the debate over pipeline safety has taken center stage in a world of growing energy demand and new resources to meet it. It’s known that pipelines are the safest and most economical way to move oil and gas, but the controversy has intensified as both their criticality to infrastructure and the incidence of failure due to aging and other factors have increased.

Technical sessions will include:

  • Utility pigging – cleaning, sealing, gauging
  • In-line inspection
  • Inspection intervals
  • Integrity assessment, including assessment of defects detected by inspection
  • Prioritization of maintenance and repairs
  • Mapping
  • Geometry inspection
  • Leak detection
  • Corrosion detection and monitoring, including special threats such as Cracking
  • Regulations

Abstract submissions should include a title, speaker name, and no more than 200 words. You can submit an abstract by visiting
