Northern Area Western Conference 2017
Hosted at the Shaw Conference Centre, Edmonton, Alberta – February 13-16, 2017
Surviving with Integrity
On behalf of the Edmonton section of NACE International, we would like to invite you to the 2017 Northern Area Western Conference in Edmonton, Alberta. This four day conference will focus on Corrosion in Oil and Gas Pipeline Systems and Oil Sands Operations/Facilities.
Asset Integrity Management is an important topic, not only for regulatory requirements but also for ensuring your assets are protected and profitable. With the recent downturn in the economy and a push to do more with less, managing integrity remains extremely important. Failures lead to the deterioration of these assets, lost production and often significant repair costs. Despite a continuing global increase in energy consumption, producers face increasing scrutiny by the general public and regulatory bodies. Responsible owners are continuously finding ways to innovate and partner with service companies to effectively manage the 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 best practices in the industry to enhance profitability and improve integrity programs.
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 February 2017.
Conference Chair – Jason Thomas
Conference Vice-Chair - Harry Tsaprailis
