Call for Papers

PPSA members and pipeline operators are invited to submit proposals for seminar papers by 31th May 2022.

We are looking for papers covering the entire process of pigging, from pigging during construction, pigging during operation, cleaning, inspection, pigging for general maintenance, repair, rehabilitation and decommissioning. We welcome case studies on long distance pigging, onshore/offshore and subsea installation and inspection, unpiggable pipelines, as well as presentations on regulations and health and safety.

The paper should be a technical paper that adds knowledge to the industry. Preferably the paper should cover new information and/or contain novel techniques.

The paper must not be a sales pitch or an advert for a product or service.

You will need to provide a written paper AND a powerpoint presentation, both of which will be published on the PPSA web site after the seminar.

We welcome papers authored by operators. We also welcome jointly authored papers.

Examples of past papers can be seen here.

To submit a proposal, please download and complete the Abstract Submission Form and email it to . The deadline for submissions is Tuesday 31th May 2022.

Authors of selected papers will present their papers at the PPSA seminar and the written papers will be published in the seminar proceedings and on the PPSA web site.

Finished written papers will be required by 18th October 2022 at the latest to allow time to produce the delegate packs and courier them to the hotel. It is vital that everyone meets this deadline. Your PowerPoint presentation will be required after the event for publication on the PPSA web site.
