This means two events full of impactful learning and networking for the North American midstream market will be offered for the price of one. Both will be at The Westin Houston Hotel, with the Pipeline Technology Forum on March 30 and the Pipeline Opportunities Conference Plus on March 31.

The new Pipeline Technology Forum will provide in-depth presentations over topics including improving flow rate standard conversion of ultrasonic flow meters in hydrogen and natural gas blends, engineered high-strength composite systems for tank repair, and how to remove infrastructure barriers and reporting challenges during pipeline evacuation in the field.

These will be presented by experts from companies including Pipe Spring LLC, Hap Pigsley Consulting LLC and Hifi Engineering. Russel Treat, President & CEO of EnerACT Energy Services, will present Natural Compliance: A program/process approach using systems to execute the PDCA cycle and support safety, which will detail how to support the full Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) cycle in pipeline operations and achieve compliance naturally.

Pipeline Technology Forum sessions will last from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., with networking and meal breaks before, during and after. A networking breakfast and registration starts at 7:30 a.m. each day.

The following day, one of Pipeline Opportunities Conference’s presenters will be Alex Henning, Project Manager for Kinder Morgan. He will discuss overcoming environmental, terrain, planning and permitting challenges using intersect Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) for the world’s longest straight-line distance – 13,158’, 265’ below Lake Sakakawea.

Bruce Bullock and James Coleman from SMU will serve as panelists for a Maguire Institute discussion over global pipeline construction trends. Other presentations will include INGAA’s Annual Washington report, actionable project intelligence from Global Energy Infrastructure, cybersecurity and protection from hackers, and more.

Executives, contractors, business owners, regulators and consultants are all invited to attend. Attendees will leave more informed about the state of the midstream industry, technology and regulation.
