GITA, Pipeline & Gas Journal Launch Annual Technology Conference

Gulf Energy Information (Gulf) and its market-leading pipeline media, Pipeline & Gas Journal, and the Geospatial Information and Technology Association (GITA) announced they have reached an agreement to produce the Pipeline Technology Forum, including the 27th GITA Oil and Gas Pipeline Conference.

The Pipeline Technology Forum will take place Oct. 16-17, 2018, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in downtown Houston. Over 100 exhibitors and more than 500 attendees are expected at the two-day event.  The forum will include general sessions and two tracks of technical presentations on the use of geospatial technologies, pipeline software and other applied technologies for the pipeline industry. GITA also will hold its board and association meetings during the event.

The Pipeline Technology Forum will replace Pipeline Week, the former GITA annual event, according to Mark Limbruner, president of the association.

“The GITA board and I are extremely happy to have engaged with Gulf Energy Information to produce our 27th annual pipeline event. Our members and attendees should look forward to a refreshed and exciting conference,” Limbruner said. “Gulf’s ability to co-brand our event with the leading trade journal in the market, Pipeline & Gas Journal, and its data for the pipeline industry, make it an ideal partner for GITA and for a vibrant and growing industry segment. The combination will also significantly increase the educational value of our annual conference.”

Brian Nessen, group publisher for Pipeline & Gas Journal and Underground Construction, shared Limbruner's enthusiasm for Gulf's new partnership with GITA.

“We are thrilled to be working with GITA to put on the annual conference and to further learning and best practices for geospatial and pipeline technology professionals," Nessen said.  "With our very large Pipeline & Gas Journal audience and our new Energy Web Atlas pipeline data, we are ideally suited to work with GITA to make the annual conference the learning and networking epicenter for pipeline technologies.”

GITA is a member-led nonprofit professional education association and leading advocate for the use of geospatial technology to help operate, maintain and protect North American infrastructure. The association provides ongoing learning and engagement opportunities for its members through conferences, research initiatives and other programs.

Gulf has provided business and technical knowledge to the global oil and gas industry for more than 100 years, starting with a single publication and evolving to a diversified media and market intelligence company. Gulf publishes industry-leading publications, including World Oil, Hydrocarbon Processing, Gas Processing & LNG, Petroleum Economist, Pipeline & Gas Journal, and produces the Construction Boxscore and Energy Web Atlas datasets, containing in-depth project and facility data.
