2nd Annual Pipeline Infrastructure & Safety Conference

The Indian government has earmarked USD 5 billion in the pipeline & terminal sector in the Hydrocarbon Vision 2025, to meet the country’s growing energy demand. This would require the government to have a prudent and pragmatic approach for the development of infrastructure in the hydrocarbon space, especially oil and gas pipelines. Building an additional 15,000 km of pipelines under the PPP scheme will boost private funding and participation as well as hasten the execution of these projects. Also, with PNGRB growth plans of 5000 km of pipeline execution in the next 2-3 years, near future seems good for pipeline infrastructure growth and in turn opportunities are awaited by construction companies for executing these projects.

The existing pipeline network for hydrocarbon transportation comprises of almost 30-32 per cent of all the modes of transportation. Various companies have their own operational network of pipelines. The hydrocarbon pipeline network in India tantamount to approx 25000 km however but has fewer terminals for handling large LNG imports. India is witnessing increased demand for natural gas and will ensure a steady pattern for pipeline network growth. This, in turn, demands larger growth and subsequent higher scope of investments.

While the building of more interstate and cross country pipelines remains at the forefront of the growth plans, another very important segment of oil and gas pipeline safety stays the front runner. Today’s pipelines require the rigorous application of safety and control systems. A lot of initiatives are being taken to raise safety standards that include replacing old pipelines and integrating advanced technologies. There is a need to create modern IT solutions to boost reaction time and prevent casualties. The protection of oil, gas and refined product pipelines against sabotage, illegal tapping, and terrorist action, combined with the detection of leaks and inline equipment failure, is a high priority in all countries but has been notoriously difficult to achieve.

The 2nd edition of Pipeline Infrastructure & Safety conference will focus on the latest developments in the areas pipeline infrastructure for the future along with its regulatory perspective. The conference shall also focus on the important subject of safeguarding the pipelines by means of technological innovation and pipeline integrity management.

7th Annual BCP & IT DR CONFERENCE India 2015

As we all know, Business continuity planning (BCP) is an integral part of any business unit, be it a small, mid size or a large business house and irrespective of product/ services the business is manufacturing. With the current global B2C and B2B 24/7 working environment, it is imperative and almost obligatory on the business to stay well informed of internal as well external threats and take corrective measures to prevent disruption in the smooth functioning of the business and minimizing losses due to any downtime.

Having said that disaster may occur anytime, be it man made or natural, so we must be prepared. Depending on the size and nature of the business, we design a plan to minimize the disruption caused by the disaster and keep our business intact running & competitive. But with increased use of IT and e-business becoming prevalent in almost all the organization there is a need for business running 24/7 online and a single second downtime may result in huge losses in such a scenario. It becomes necessary in such situation to have modern disaster recovery plan rather than focusing on restoring the centralized data center or also referred as business continuity and resiliency planning BCRP.

7th Annual BCP & IT DR India 2015 aims to create a forum wherein different industries comes together and share their BCP & IT DR issues and what are the various solutions, tools, and technology available for the same. This conference will also facilitate a good networking and information sharing opportunity within various stake holders. USP of the event being interactive discussions, case studies, and technology demonstration so that there s a huge knowledge take away for BCP professionals who can then use the same and implement within their own organizations.


Cyber-attacks are a national security concern. Banking, utilities, healthcare, communications, government services, emergency services, transportation – all are critical to the normal daily activities in every nation.

The increasing volume and sophistication of cyber threats–including targeting phishing scams, data theft, and other online vulnerabilities demand that we remain vigilant about securing our systems and information. The average unprotected computer (i.e. does not have proper security controls in place) connected to the Internet can be compromised in moments. Thousands of infected web pages are being discovered every day. Hundreds of millions of records have been involved in data breaches. New attack methods are launched continuously. These are just a few examples of the threats facing us, and they highlight the importance of information security as a necessary approach to protecting data and systems.

In order to cope with these security challenges – IXIA has joined hands with Cerebral Business Research to organize a Technical seminar on Protecting networking Infrastructure from Cyber Threats on 23rd August 2013 at Vivanta by Taj at Bangalore.

We take this opportunity to invite you to attend this important seminar which will help you to protect your data & systems.

  • Modernization of Indian Refineries The Technology Perspective

    India’s automobile industry has seven years to upgrade to the Bharat Stage-V emission norms, but it can meet the deadline only if oil marketing companies manage to line up fresh investments of at least Rs 80,000 crore over the next few years to supply the requisite fuel. An expert committee, tasked by the petroleum ministry to suggest standards and timelines for switching to higher quality fuel and emission norms in the country, has recommended an upgrade to the intermediate BS-IV+ norms across India by April 1, 2017 followed by the introduction of BS-V fuel on April 1, 2021 if fresh investments are made.

    The emission standards are instituted by the government to regulate the output of air pollutants from internal combustion engine equipment including motor vehicles. Oil marketing companies (OMCs) had invested Rs 30,000 crore for moving from BS-III to BS-IV emission norms in 2010. It is estimated that fresh investments of at least Rs 80,000 crore will be needed over the next few years for OMCs to set up new facilities capable of producing the BS-V fuel.

    Regulatory norms for Bharat IV and V will force refineries to go for a technological overhaul. Keeping in mind Bharat IV equivalent Euro-IV quality auto fuels are already mandated in major cities in India and many of refineries have set up/ are setting up facilities for meeting Euro-IV and V quality fuels. This will be required to meet the future quality standards in India and will enable the refinery to market its products anywhere in India including the major cities and also to export the products.

    The one day conference will focus on opportunities, technological Challenges and way forward for the modernization of Indian Refineries. The forum will attract all major refinery operators and global technology/solution provider/regulators / consultants at one platform for knowledge sharing.

    2nd Annual Next Generation Cyber Threats India Exposition 2014

    About the 2nd Annual Next Generation Cyber Threats India Exposition 2014

    Cyber-attacks are a national security concern. Banking, utilities, healthcare, communications, government services, emergency services, transportation – all are critical to the normal daily activities in India.

    India is one of the leading victims of cyber-crime and the cyber security, as per the industry report the cyber crime is estimated at around US$ 218 million. Indian cyber security companies have developed indigenous products to address rising cyber-threats, but, with the limited success. Cyber threats are a fastest growing crime today and this can be defined as malicious intrusions into cyber networks using vicious codes including viruses, worms, spyware, and malware with the intention to cause harm. According to a Security Research Firm, the highest rates of cyber crimes are found in areas with uninterrupted internet connectivity in India.
