PennWell Acquires the Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference
PennWell Corporation recently acquired the Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference from Willbros Engineers and entered into an agreement with the Geospatial Information & Technology Association to produce the annual conference and exhibition.
The 22nd annual Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference will be held 28–30 October 2013 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston.
The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) founded the conference in 1991 and developed it into an important technical event for the oil and gas pipeline sector that brings together practitioners, suppliers, and solution providers in the oil and gas industry.
GITA partnered with Willbros Engineers to conduct the 2012 event as GITA completed its transition to an all-volunteer organisation.
Over 350 industry professionals attended the 2012 conference in Houston, which had 55 exhibitors and sponsors. The annual event includes multiple conferences and networking sessions.
