Enhancing pipeline security in your refinery - Adapting technologies
and solutions to keep your pipelines safe from vandalisation and terror threats

Timings 09.00-10.30

The biggest problem for refineries in Africa is pipeline vandalisation and oil theft from these pipelines. In 2017, there were 194 cases of pipeline vandalisation costing $14 billion annually. Vandalisation results in not just oil theft but a high casualty rate and adverse effects on the environment.

Intelligent and smart technology such as smart sensors, drones and video surveillance can help tackle these challenges head on. This will help refineries save billions in lost oil and repairs to pipelines

Do you want to keep your pipelines safe from oil thefts and vandalisation causing catastrophe and environmental disasters?

The published programme is correct at time of printing. However, given the seniority of our speakers and the nature of their roles, speakers may subsequently substitute or remove themselves from the programme. This is always regrettable, and we will always try to replace the speaker with a speaker with equivalent insight.
