    8:00 am - 6:30 pm

July 22/07/21 Update: Due to the most recent lockdown in Victoria, we’ve rescheduled this event for the new date of Tuesday, October 19th, as we’re really like to allow for in person attendance if possible. However, if come the 19th of October we’re still unable to run this event in person, it will go ahead as an entirely online event. 

The Australian Pipelines and Gas Association and the Australasian Corrosion Association have joined together to host a technical seminar to discuss the challenges and solutions for preventing corrosion in pipelines, some of our most vital infrastructure. Presentations on technologies such as materials selection, coatings and cathodic protection used to attain the desired design life of our assets will be discussed. Speakers will share their experience and those of others they have learned from, and include case studies in their presentations.

This is a hybrid event, with in-person attendance available in Melbourne and online attendance available for those unable to make it in person.


Who should attend?

Presentations will appeal to all industry sectors involved with pipeline asset management – including asset owners, project and integrity engineers, operators, inspection and maintenance personnel, contractors and suppliers.
