Call for Papers

Inline with PPSA’s current topic of interest (that members voted for earlier this year) the main theme for this year’s seminar will be ‘Challenges in day to day pigging - difficult to pig lines, unusual products (e.g. ammonia, ethylene, hydrogen, high H2S etc.), lodged pigs, pig tracking etc.’ with an emphasis on the latest developments within the industry. We are also looking for a number of papers covering the entire process of pigging, from Pigging during construction, Pigging during operation, cleaning, inspection, intervention, Pigging for general maintenance, repair, rehabilitation and decommissioning. We welcome case studies on long distance Pigging, onshore/offshore and subsea installation and inspection, as well as presentations on regulations and health and safety. Papers by operators or jointly authored with an operator are always popular with delegates.

To submit a proposal, please download and complete the Abstract Submission Form and email it to . The deadline for submissions is Friday 31st July 2020. Please ensure the paper is educational and contains technical, new information rather than a sales pitch. The presentation will need to be about 25 minutes long with 5 minutes for questions.

Finished written papers will be required by 23rd October 2020 at the latest and will be published on the PPSA website, along with your PowerPoint presentation.
