Recent Event Highlights

The photos above illustrate some of the fantastic events and competitions that are a result of the continuous hard work from the Scottish Branch.

Our Branch

The Scottish Branch meets once a quarter and holds meetings across the central belt of Scotland.  The Aberdeen section is based in Aberdeen and is centred around the offshore and upstream oil and gas industry. 

Our Young Professionals Network is becoming increasingly active and offers a variety of benefits to young pipeliners, including some excellent site visits and the opportunity to present papers for our annual Carron Trophy. For more information about this paper competition please check our events section.

The Branch holds a golf day in August and its annual dinner is held in either Edinburgh or Glasgow in September/October.  The Aberdeen section also holds a dinner usually in Aberdeen.  All of these events provide excellent networking opportunities for attendees in great venues and have in the past raised significant sums for a variety of charities.  We are always on the look out for new members of our committees and would welcome any enquiries from interested members. Contact us today for more information about the Scottish branch.
