The IPLOCA Convention is a unique annual gathering of the leading global players in the pipeline construction industry. This event takes place over 5 days and registration is restricted to IPLOCA Regular Members, Associate Members, Academic Members, Honorary Members, our Media Partners and guests of IPLOCA.
This 49th Convention, attended by 510 participants, was the second one held in Singapore; the last one dating back to 1989.
The Open General Meetings held on Thursday and Friday included presentations on a wide variety of subjects including the history of Singapore, the feasibility of new pipeline projects in the new macroeconomic environment, trends in international upstream M&A in a depressed oil price market, efficient deep water seabed intervention, pipeline projects in Saudi Arabia, and high pressure water transmission pipelines.
Members also attended the Annual General Meeting and presentations of three industry Awards: the IPLOCA Health & Safety Award sponsored by Chevron, the IPLOCA Corporate Social Responsibility Award sponsored by Total and the IPLOCA New Technologies Award sponsored by BP.
The tour programme this year focused on the highlights of this cosmopolitan and culturally diverse city. There was a cultural tour; a morning visit to Singapore Zoo and a night safari; visits to the Gardens by the Bay with their award winning horticulture domes and awe inspiring architectural design; tours to the Botanic Gardens and Sentosa Island including the world’s largest aquarium.
