The Pipeline Technology Journal (ptj) will be available as a Chinese edition from April 2016 on. This has been agreed between the ptj-publisher and a Chinese partner company associated with PetroChina, the country’s biggest oil and gas group.
“It is our strong belief that the Chinese market is of great importance for many international companies. Therefore, a closer cooperation and a translated edition of ptj is an appropriate step in building bridges between the Chinese pipeline industry and the global pipeline community”, said Dr. Klaus Ritter, publisher and editor-in-chief of the Pipeline Technology Journal and also Chairman of the Pipeline Technology Conference (Berlin, 23 – 25 May 2016).
ptj China will be available from mid-April on. It will be released three weeks after the English edition. The final contract will be signed during the INTERPIPE 2016 in Lang Fang, China, taking place on 12 - 14 April 2016.
“This cooperation will enable foreign companies to introduce their know-how to the Chinese market, and to advertise their products. We will reach up to 20,000 Chinese pipeline professionals with the Chinese edition of ptj. This includes operators, service and technology providers, government officials as well as media contacts”, said Zhengtao Ma, General Manager of the partner company Langfang International Pipeline Conference & Exhibition Co. Ltd and responsible for the distribution of ptj China.
With this cooperation the Pipeline Technology Journal will significantly extend its range to approximately 50,000 pipeline experts worldwide.
