About the Pipeline Technology Podcast (PTP)
Launched in September 2020, the Pipeline Technology Podcast (PTP) is hosted by Russel Treat and sponsored by Pipeline & Gas Journal (PGJ).
The monthly podcast is released on Wednesdays each month. The second podcast in the Pipeline Podcast Network was created through a conversation with PGJ editor Michael Reed to advance education about pipeline technology through the podcasting forum.
Each monthly episode focuses on a specific area of current and emerging pipeline technology. The goal is to provide pipeline professionals with a greater understanding of the latest use of technology and upcoming trends that will impact how pipeliners perform their work.
