  • International Pipeline Exposition Event Guide, 40 pages Event Overview Brochure – 25 x 11, 2 fold Welcome Hello and welcome to the 2008 International Pipeline Exposition and Calgary, Alberta! International Pipeline Exposition Over the next few days, you will have a unique opportunity to meet and interact with the most skilled and recognized brands in the global pipeline industry, as well as delegates and visitors from almost 50 countries. In a world where energy demands are growing at unprecedented rates, it is obvious that pipelines will play an increasingly important roll in safely and efficiently transporting oil & gas from upstream to downstream destinations and to market. The importance of pipelines has also lead to the continued growth of the IPE. This installment of the IPE also builds on it’s reputation as an international event and features technology from across the globe. Whether it’s the very latest in corrosion control, pipeline integrity, detection systems, testing, inspection or various pigging solutions... delegates and visitors will witness O f f i c i a l E v e n t G u i d e the best from North and South America, Asia, Europe and beyond. Alberta is a particularly exciting place for the energy industry overall and pipelines are critical to the industry’s growth. As production in Alberta’s vast oilsands deposits are increased and more of it’s approximately 173 billion barrels of oil are recovered, it will be pipelines that will transport the resource to downstream destinations and beyond. Current pipeline assets however will need to double by 2015 to meet current production forecast estimates. In addition, pipelines will be critical to opening up new markets and increasing access to Alberta’s vast resources for economies throughout Asia and beyond. In addition to showcasing the best in the industry, combined with the International Pipeline Conference, IPE fulfils a vital function by providing a forum for industry, government, regulators and the public to learn about leading edge knowledge in pipeline engineering, and to discuss the current and emerging issues facing the industry now and in the future. So, please enjoy the 2008 IPE and allow yourself the time to meet the hundreds of exhibitors that are involved with this year’s event. Also make sure to experience as much of Calgary as possible – the heart of Canada’s Exhibitor Profiles energy industry - as well as our world famous Rocky Mountains, Banff and of course our Western hospitality.
