As managing directors of the EITEP Institute, it is our pleasure to welcome you to our 10th anniversary edition of the Pipeline Technology Journal (ptj). Since its first issue in 2013, our journal has grown into a widely recognized and respected source of information and analysis for pipeline professionals.
As we mark this milestone, we want to express our sincere appreciation to our readers and contributors, as well as to the members of our ptj Editorial Board. Without their support and dedication, we would not have been able to achieve the success we have today.
The mission of the EITEP Institute is to foster exchange of knowledge and ideas and to help advance the field. For ten years now, ptj News with its news portal, social media channels and the newsletter provides up-to-date coverage of pipeline technology and engineering, while the Journal offers in-depth professional articles. Both aim to promote knowledge sharing and advancement in the industry through the dissemination of research and best practices. Furthermore, all technical articles are available on an open-access basis. For this reason, our website has become a valuable resource for pipeline professionals, providing them with a wealth of information
on the latest technologies, innovations and best practices in the industry.
It is not an exaggeration to say that we are proud of the Pipeline Technology Journal, which serves as a testament to the exciting and diverse nature of the pipeline industry. We will continue to cover the latest trends, technologies and regulatory developments and to showcase the innovative work being done by pipeline professionals all around the world.
Once again, we would like to thank everyone who has contributed to the success of the Pipeline Technology Journal over the past decade. We look forward to the years to come.
Dennis Fandrich & Marian Ritter
