The famously known East African Crude Oil Pipeline (EACOP) is a clone of the never-implemented Uganda-Kenya Crude Oil Pipeline (UKCOP), shaped by political intrigues within the EAC bloc, a report published on ScienceDirect by Brandon Cannon and Stephen Mogaka reveals.
As the energy crisis in Europe continues to hit the European Union member states hard, the oil and gas industry in Saudi Arabia is very promising. According to Engineer Abdullah S. Al-Zahrani, an expert consultant in the oil and gas industry specializing in drilling and exploration, the Master Gas System expansion phase III project would be a significant boost to the Saudi oil and gas markets.
The prevailing energy crisis in Europe has exposed the EU's underlying problems that were overlooked for many years.
When Vladimir Putin decided to attack Ukraine, he opened a new chapter in European history. Russia has started a war against Ukraine. This is not only a threat for Ukraine, but also for Europe as a whole, for the security of Europe.
Facing this conflict, the EU is standing together as one, together with the US. It has been long since such a scenario could be seen - if ever.
The flagship European conference and exhibition for the international pipeline industry, the Pipeline Technology Conference (ptc), will open its gate for the 17th time from 7 – 10 March 2022 in Berlin.
2020 will be remembered as the year the Covid 19 pandemic changed the world. But there was also a conspicuous growing momentum behind the campaign to address the longer-term global challenge of climate change. More and more countries made pledges to achieve "net zero" emissions.
With around 1,000 participants and an above-average number of participants from pipeline operators, the Pipeline Technology Conference (ptc) is a unique meeting place for the exchange of operator knowledge across national borders and continents. This defining characteristic was confirmed again this year at the purely online ptc.
Given the medical imperatives of our time, the 16th Pipeline Technology Conference, initially planned as a hybrid event, will morph into an online-only event.
Building on the groundbreaking success of the first Virtual Pipeline Summit (VPS) earlier this year 30 June 2020 which attracted over 600 participants from around the world, the EITEP Institute, the summit’s organizer, is readying to launch the second VPS on 7 October 2020.
The latest Concawe report on ‘’Performance of European cross-country oil pipelines - statistical summary of reported spillages in 2018 and since 1971” is now available online.
The key message of the report is that there is no ageing in the pipeline systems due to high-quality supervision and maintenance programs.
Following the lessons learned from the first-ever online Pipeline Technology Conference in March 2020 the organizing EITEP Institute developed a new Virtual Pipeline Summit (VPS) series of events.
The first ever online ptc 2020 was successfully held from 30 March to 2 April 2020. The digital version of the renowned Pipeline Technology Conference (ptc) was put in place on short notice by the organizer EITEP Institute, after the Corona-Pandemic led to a global shutdown.
