Event Overview

The Middle East Pipeline Summit is the definitive midstream summit; bringing together regional and international experts to discuss advancements in technologies and concepts for maintaining and operating oil and gas pipelines.

Pipelines play an integral role in fostering economic growth globally. Numerous investments being made in the petrochemical facilities and LNG terminals being planned today, are supported by a reliable supply of feedstocks provided by pipeline infrastructure.

The global oil and gas pipeline market size is projected to surpass $61 Billion by 2022. The oil and gas pipeline market in the Middle East and Africa alone is anticipated to cross $10 Billion by 2022. The Middle East’s oil and gas new-build transmission pipeline length additions, accounts for approximately 43% of the region’s planned and announced pipeline length additions between 2020 and 2023.

The Middle East Pipeline Summit will address important oil industry issues at technical and strategic levels, in order to provide quality, with special focus on innovation, current challenges and case studies. The Summit will present unparalleled opportunities to network with qualified experts and professionals across global markets.
