ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

TFAP 2018 HAS NOW CONCLUDED

If you have any questions regarding future events please email conferences@gs-press.com.au

The Technology for Future and Ageing Pipelines (TFAP) Conference, a continuation of the prestigious Pipeline Technology Conferences organised by Rudi Denys in Ostend, is held at Het Pand, Gent, Belgium. The conference is aimed at sharing knowledge and featuring the latest achievements relative to the assessment, use, and maintenance of both ageing high-pressure (cross-country/offshore) transmission and ageing low-pressure distribution gas and oil pipeline systems. A parallel theme will be to explore the latest technology for materials and welding for new pipelines to ensure they are designed for a maximum effective operational lifetime.
