Handling pipe on construction jobs is a labor intensive, time-consuming and potentially-dangerous task, but one that is necessary on every water, sanitary sewer and energy pipeline project, as well as many utility projects where cable is placed in duct or conduit.

The second annual Tulsa Pipeline Expo will be held Sept. 1 – 3, at the historic QT Center, formerly known as the International Petroleum Expo building at the Tulsa, OK, fairgrounds. The Tulsa Pipeline Expo (TPE) was created in 2009 and designed to showcase the thriving industries of energy and infrastructure in the Tulsa area, said TPE President Shawn Lowman.

Tulsa, OK, has long been established as a principal base for oil and gas pipeline manufacturers, contractors and energy companies. While much of the industry has consolidated in Houston, Tulsa remains a principal manufacturing and service hub for the pipeline market.
