2013 Event Experiences Record Numbers

PennWell Corporation, a diversified global media and information company, acquired the Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference from Willbros Engineers and entered into an agreement with the Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) to produce the 2013 annual conference and exhibition bringing together practitioners, suppliers, and solution providers in the oil and gas industry.  The 22nd annual Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference was held October 28-30, 2013 at the Royal Sonesta Hotel in Houston. The 2013 event showed record numbers with over 600 attendees.

GITA founded the Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference in 1991 and developed the conference into an important technical event for the oil and gas pipeline sector.  For the October 2012 Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference, GITA partnered with Willbros Engineers to conduct the event as GITA completed its transition to an all-volunteer organization.  Over 350 industry professionals attended the October 2012 Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference in Houston, which also had 55 exhibitors and sponsors.  The annual event includes multiple conferences and networking sessions.

Robert F. Biolchini, president and CEO of PennWell, said, “We are enthusiastic  about the opportunity to work with GITA with the goal of rapidly accelerating the growth of the Oil & Gas Pipeline Conference and we also look forward to the ongoing  support of Willbros and other sponsors of the event.  The pipeline and transportation sectors of the industry are experiencing phenomenal growth due to the resurgence of exploration and drilling in North America, and we intend to leverage PennWell’s publishing assets and event expertise of our editorial staff of the Oil & Gas Journal, Offshore, and Oil & Gas Financial Journal in a close collaboration with GITA to expand the conference and preserve the standard of quality in conference content established by GITA over the last 21 years.”
