Pipeline best practices probed
Manama, March 20, 2012
Bahrain Energy Minister Dr Abdulhussain Mirza yesterday inaugurated the Middle East conference and exhibition on Best Practices in Pipeline Operations, the first such specialised conference to be held in Kingdom.
It was organised by Tiratsoo Technical and Clarion Technical Conferences, in collaboration with Global Web Energy Consultants and in co-ordination with the National Oil and Gas Authority.
Sixty-five companies took part in the exhibition, showcasing the latest technology in the pipeline operations.
Dr Mirza commended the high level of organisation of the conference and accompanying exhibition, which aims to review the best practices in the pipelines industry. This is the first such specialised conference to be held in Bahrain.
Dr Mirza said best practices are defined as the means or methods which have proven through experiments and research to reliably achieve the desired results.
"To achieve success in this strongly competitive industrial sector, we must be obliged to using best practices, which are committed to using the technical knowledge available, and pipelines are of very high importance in this field as they transfer the necessary energy for our industries and daily needs," he said.
The minister thanked the sponsoring oil companies, in particular Saudi Aramco, for their valuable efforts.
The conference was attended by more than 420 delegates from 26 countries. A large number of specialists from the GCC countries also took part.-TradeArabia News Service
