Discover the Latest Techniques for Developing Highly Effective Leak Detection Programs
by Staying Ahead of Evolving Regulations and Industry Best Practices

The original networking hub for the pipeline leak detection community returns to Houston for a fully comprehensive 3-day live (and virtual) business conference. Featuring senior-level, pipeline decision-makers evaluating new opportunities to respond to new regulatory requirements and detection challenges through adopting innovative new technology. And, perhaps, thinking a little differently about solutions to problems.

Over the last year, technology has significantly progressed to meet changing regulatory requirements in leak detection. High-fidelity sensors with advanced resolution capabilities have been introduced to the market, and there is now additional guidance and clarity on future regulations, including RP 1175 and RP 1130. These standards and guidelines provide operators with a framework for effective leak detection systems, as operators are simultaneously busy implementing new rupture detection rules.

With this in mind, the latest installment of the Oil and Gas Pipeline Leak Detection Conference, taking place from June 27th to June 29th, 2023 will address these issues.

This year, we have designed a separately bookable three-day event. Our first day will focus on gas and multi-phase pipelines, while the second day will be dedicated to crude and liquid pipelines. The third day will feature a deep dive into the computational side, examining the latest algorithms and data analytics strategies for improving leak detection.

Innovations in Oil & Gas LDS:
Strategies and Technologies for Every Pipeline Type

This year's agenda strikes a balance between exploring cutting-edge technology and maintaining a focus on the fundamental principles of leak detection. Rather than merely showcasing the latest trends in technology, the agenda takes more of a nuanced approach to address the specific challenges and gaps that come with each pipeline type and location. Especially for high-consequence areas. The speakers consider diverse strategies and technologies, all while ensuring that the fundamental principles of leak detection are properly addressed. The practical case studies and follow-up discussions aim to help you identify the solutions that best fit your specific needs and challenges, focusing on credible, proven methods that deliver results for operators.

Gain unparalleled insights from industry leaders on adopting an integrated approach that combines internal, external, and computational methodologies with a laser focus on solutions for gas, liquids, and computational pipelines. Discover how to optimize your leak detection program with a sophisticated exploration of the different approaches for maximum effectiveness across specific pipeline types. For those seeking even greater depth, our separately bookable workshops and half-day options provide an opportunity to dive deeply into specific topics and solutions, all led by senior-level professionals at the forefront of the industry.

Design your agenda based on your priorities. We recognize that not every operator runs the same type of pipeline, such as gathering pipes, for instance, which is why we offer more choices to tailor your own agendaOur separately bookable options for gas, liquids, and gathering pipelines ensure that you can maximize your return on time and focus on the topics that matter most to you.
