Sustainable trenchless rehabilitation of supply pipelines applying static pipe bursting or close-fit lining
Leaking oil, gas or water pressure pipelines force utility companies to decide whether to repair, renovate or replace the defective pipes. The main decisive factors are the degree and type of damage, the sustainability of the method and the resulting rehabilitation cost...
Using the Linear Risk Integral (LRI) approach in pipeline QRA for a better application of risk mitigation measures
Minimizing the risks resulting from hazardous scenarios during the design of a given system is of superior importance in order to ensure a safe operation and to demonstrate and satisfy regulatory requirements...
Feeding biogas into the natural gas grid: challenges for the design, construction and operation of biogas feed-in plants
Despite general standardization of work operations and plant components, the respective plants for feeding biogas into long-distance gas transmission lines require an individual approach. Depending on which biogas processing plant is used in order to process bio-methane into biogas, the input parameters for feeding into the natural gas grid are different...
Smart CCP - detecting minor damages in the coating of cathodically protected buried pipelines
Cathodic corrosion protection (CCP) is a technical system which is used to reliably protect underground steel pipes against external corrosion. For high pressure gas pipelines of public gas supply with an operating pressure > 4 bar, the installation of this protection method is even stipulated...
Novel High Performance Polyurea Spray Coatings for corrosion protection
Long-term exterior corrosion protection of buried pipelines is crucial for safety, performance, and cost of pipeline operation. Salt marsh soil, named “Subkha” in Arabic, provides a particularly challenging environment for buried pipelines. Subkha soils are sandy soils with high water and salt contents...

Dear pipeline community

More than 25.000 km of pipelines are installed every year - demands are rising. Therefore approximately 300 billion US Dollar need to be invested. Operation, maintenance and rehabilitation of pipelines require best materials, best techniques and best qualified employees. To offer all involved economic groups the opportunity to be informed about research results and new developments and to discuss in a global way, we have launched the Pipeline Technology Journal, ptj.

It covers reports about research, industry and practice, presentation of innovative concepts and technologies, special reports about pipeline safety as well as the upcoming event calendar.

ptj will be sent to more than 15.000 international decision makers and experts of the pipeline industry.

Hard copies will be handed out at international pipeline events.
