Welcome To ICEPIM - "Pipeline Integrity Management"

The 6th International Conference & Exhibition on Pipeline Integrity Management(6th ICEPIM) is recognized as the Biggest Technical conference in India, focusing on the critical aspects of Pipeline Integrity. The conference is aimed at sharing knowledge on the latest developments in pipeline integrity management, use and maintenance of Aging Pipelines, new technologies and materials. Pipeline Integrity Management Program(PIM) not only can extend the life of the existing pipelines it also helps to prevent any future damage if follows during design and construction of the new pipelines, maintain adequate safeguards for assets, human life and the environment.

The integrity of pipelines is a basic concern for pipeline operators, and therefore, the ability to detect anomalies due to corrosion, erosion, milling and mechanical damage shall be of significant interest to the operators. Pipeline Integrity Management Programs are nowadays must requirements for the various pipeline industries like Oil & Gas Pipelines, Onshore/Offshore Pipelines, CGD, LNG network, Water Pipeline, Slurry Pipeline, etc. The conference provides an effective platform for Pipeline, Material, Corrosion, Inspection & NDT, O&M professionals across the world from various industries, policymakers, research institutions and academia for exchanging their ideas, acquiring knowledge/information regarding existing and upcoming products and technologies.  Be a part of 6th ICPEIM to get the rare opportunity to learn from the distinguished speakers & avail the unparalleled opportunity to highlight your products and services to the pipeline Industry. Your involvement at this premier event is essential to accomplish our mission “Maintaining Safety & Reliability of the Pipelines”.

The 5th edition of ICEPIM had highly encouraging participation with more than 100 companies. Many insightful paper presentations were conducted by domestic MNCs/research organizations and foreign participants from USA, UK, UAE, Singapore, Gulf countries & others. Present edition- 6th ICEPIM will highlight topics on O&M/ Reliability/Emergency response/HSE aspects on CGD, subsea pipelines, onshore & offshore pipelines, LNG etc.

We cordially invite you to join with us in 6th ICEPIM.

Best Wishes
