In the wake of industry pressures to maximise oil recovery and meet increasing demand for energy, it is critical for you to build robust integrity practices that allow you to improve efficiency and extend the lifecycle of your assets, but how can you achieve this?

This sixth edition of the EI’s popular asset integrity management conference series,  has been developed to give you the opportunity to learn, debate, and meet with others facing these difficult industry-wide challenges.

The programme brings together oil and gas operators, regulators and technical experts to discuss new approaches and ideas to developing more efficient working practices for ageing assets.

Technical presentations, case studies and sharing of lessons learned across the sector will provide essential guidance to improve operational understanding of:

  • plant safety, reliability and viability
  • regulatory compliance
  • managing ageing life extension
  • corrosion management, and
  • fabric maintenance.

This conference represents a cost-effective way to equip yourself with new ideas to improve your organisations’ operations, with fees starting from only £275 + VAT,

Bookings can be made online or via the PDF booking form attached to this page.
