The flagship European conference & exhibition for the international pipeline industry took place in Berlin on the 8th-11th May 2023 and saw pipeline and distribution network operators from all over the world participate in the pipeline technology conference to learn more about current developments in the industry and exchange experiences with industry peers. See a summary of the highlights from the conference below.
The Pipeline Technology Conference showcased an impressive array of innovative global pipeline technologies and provided excellent networking sessions that allowed valuable topics to be shared and discussed amongst pipeline operators, industry experts, and colleagues alike.
WORLD PIPELINE OUTLOOK.
There were many key stakeholder discussions on the world pipeline outlook and the critical issues surrounding the transition to a low-carbon energy future, including the transportation of hydrogen, methane emission reduction, electrification, and regulatory challenges. As well as, uncovering the latest trends, opportunities, and challenges in the pursuit of decarbonisation.
Based on the information and knowledge shared during the conference, the consensus is that the pipeline industry will be able to benefit enormously through digitalisation. However, it is clear that more clarity is required around defining ‘what digital means and looks like’ for the energy industry and how key energy stakeholders can and should adopt a digital journey.
Leading experts in the pipeline industry, like Penspen, were able to demonstrate how we are developing innovative solutions and methodologies that combine in-depth engineering expertise with digitalisation to ensure that future pipeline networks are safe and reliable and that the networks comply with future energy transportation demands. As a result, Penspen were able to provide numerous demonstrations of THEIA, the brand-new digital solution for effective pipeline integrity management, to show how digitalising pipeline data can improve decision-making, increase pipeline uptime, reduce inspection frequency, and decrease OPEX.
Operators, contractors, regulators, and high technology innovators were all connected and shared their industry insights and expertise through papers, presentations, and seminars. Penspen’s Technical Director, Aidan Charlton presented two papers during the conference. Take a look and view the full papers below.
