Thank you to all who were able to attend the 2012 International Pipeline Conference from September 24th-28th at The Hyatt in Calgary, Alberta, it was a huge success!
The trade show and technical conference continues to be an excellent forum for the pipeline industry to share information and develop new construction ideas. For those of you that attended the technical conference you may have had the opportunity to see Manley Osbak, Vice President of Engineering & Estimating at The Crossing Company present the paper "The Impact of Risk in Horizontal Directional Drilling". This paper was 1 of 361 papers submitted at the conference and was selected as a finalist for the ASME Pipeline Systems Division Best Paper Award.
This paper is the first one of five that has been written in conjunction with the Univeristy of Alberta's Centre for Excellence in Trenchless Technology. The second paper of the series will be presented at NASTT's 2013 No-Dig Show in Sacramento California from March 3rd-7th. We hope to see you there!
If you had the opportunity to visit The Crossing Company booth at the trade show you will know that this year we were raffling off an iPad. This year's winner of the raffle is Craig Davidsion from Pembina Pipeline Corporation. Congratulations Craig!
