PRESS RELEASE – HOUSTON, Sept. 19, 2016 – With continued economic hardships, environmental changes and political conditions, operating companies and pipeline businesses have adapted and continue to do so. This Tuesday through Thursday, Sept. 20-22, the world’s top oil and gas experts from 34 US states and 15 countries will meet at Pipeline Week at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott Hotel and Convention Center in The Woodlands, Texas, to discuss pipeline strategies while more than 50 companies launch and demonstrate the high-tech products and services to make it happen.
The third annual Pipeline Week combines the 12th Pipeline Open Data Standard (PODS) User Conference and milestone 25th Geospatial Information and Technology Association (GITA) Annual Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference for a joint conference and exhibition focused on oil and gas pipelines and data standards. Not only will attendees benefit by hearing directly from operators such as Chevron, Plains All American Pipeline, and Columbia Pipeline, but they’ll have the opportunity to discuss real-world challenges and solutions alongside hundreds of peers and industry experts. An operator forum, dynamic panel sessions, and numerous networking functions will open the floor for an exchange of ideas examining the industry.
“This collaboration between PODS and GITA joins together oil and gas pipeline professionals: the right people, drawing upon decades of experience at the right time to address challenges and produce results for the industry.” – Kathy Mayo, Executive Director, PODS Association
“According to a recent study, $641 billion will need to be invested over the next two decades in pipelines and other infrastructure to keep up with the gas, crude oil and natural gas liquids flowing from U.S. fields. Despite the downturn in oil & gas, this will contribute to the growth of the pipeline business,” said Mark Peters, Group Publisher and Vice President. “During Pipeline Week, attendees get valuable time with each other to ask questions, share knowledge, and compare best practices. Industry leaders enjoy this closed forum, where open discussion is highly encouraged,” said Mark Peters, Offshore Group Publisher and Vice President.
In conjunction with the conference boasting more than 60 speakers, the exhibit hall will showcase over 50 exhibitors’ products and services vital to the oil and gas pipeline industry.
