Novel Construction Sessions

The Novel Construction Initiative was launched to stimulate innovation in the technology and processes required for the execution of onshore pipeline projects. Twice a year, in the Spring and in the Fall, contributors to the pipeline construction supply chain from all around the world gather for collaborative sessions to discuss new technologies. 

During the events they have the opportunity to listen to pipeline specialists and to share experiences and initiatives in working groups with the aim to develop the content of The Road to Success mobile application.
