Northern Area Western Conference 2014
Hosted at the Shaw Conference Centre, Edmonton, Alberta - January 27-30, 2014
Safeguarding People, Property and the Environment through Asset Integrity Management
On behalf of the Edmonton section of NACE International we would like to invite you to the 2014 Northern Area Western Conference in Edmonton Alberta. This four day conference will focus on the topics of Corrosion in Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems and Oil Sands Operations/Facilities, both of which are part of the larger topic of Asset Integrity Management.
Asset Integrity Management is an important topic, particularly as it relates to pipeline corrosion and Oil Sands operations. Recent pipeline failures and the tightening of regulatory requirements in response to those failures is a key issue in the industry as owners seek to address the inevitable deterioration or their assets. Oil sands producers face continually increasing scrutiny by the general public in addition to regulatory bodies in the midst of a continuing global increase in energy consumption and demand for oil production. Responsible owners are continuously finding ways to utilize technology and partner with service companies to effectively manage the integrity of their assets in a way that will not only improve their business but also enhance their reputation with the public and industry stakeholders. Conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn about recent developments, ongoing issues, and industry recognized solutions in the areas of pipeline and Oil Sands integrity.
A trade show will be run in conjunction with the technical presentations at the conference centre, giving conference attendees ample time to browse vendor booths and discuss their integrity issues and solutions with a variety of industry representatives. Bring your questions see what mitigation, monitoring and inspection developments are available to assist you with your integrity management program planning.
On behalf of the conference organizing committee we look forward to seeing you all in January 2014.
Conference Chair – John Aru
Conference Vice-Chair - Jason Thomas
