2024 Pipeline Information eXchange (PIX) Workshop and Meeting

JW Marriott Houston Downtown | Houston, Texas


Overview

The American Petroleum Institute (API) is pleased to announce that we are sponsoring our annual Pipeline Information eXchange (PIX). The 2024 PIX will be held at the JW Marriott Houston Downtown in Houston, TX on Wednesday November 6, 2024, from 9:00 am to 4:30 pm, followed by a reception for attendees. As with the prior annual events, PIX provides a unique forum for pipeline operators to openly share information and lessons learned across a broad range of topic areas, including pipeline system incidents, near misses, industry best practices, and improvements made to pipeline safety programs through practical experiences.

In addition to the PIX, API is also sponsoring a separate half-day pipeline safety workshop on the afternoon of November 5, 2024, from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm. The workshop is also being held at the Hilton Houston Westchase and will focus on industry best practices for pressure cycle management on operating pipeline systems.

Please Note: PIX is for operators only

Avoid Housing Scams

Note: API has not contracted with any third party for hotel arrangements and will not call or email you directly to make housing arrangements on your behalf.

Should you receive a call or email from a third-party provider, please collect as much information as you can and let us know immediately. “Room Poachers” have been known to act as representatives of API, or authorized providers of API, to offer room discounts or alternative accommodations to our attendees – often to the attendee’s detriment. These companies are not affiliated with API, and reservations made through these companies for our meeting cannot be guaranteed.

How It Works

This deceptive practice (called “room poaching”) is carried out by third‐party companies that act as travel agencies, wholesalers, or even API to solicit registrants for room reservations. The poacher might inform registrants that the hotel room block is “sold out,” and that if you do not book with them immediately, you may not get a room. Room poachers make it more difficult for us to meet our room block commitments, and expose us to penalties and increased room rates for our events. Room poachers often don’t deliver on promises to customers. When customers arrive, reservations are non‐existent or the hotels are not conveniently located. Sometimes the rooms have been cancelled and hefty cancellation fees have been placed on the customer’s credit card.

Don’t Be Deceived

If you are contacted by anyone asking if you need a room for the API Conference, please get as much information as you can (their name, company name, phone number, etc.) and pass it along to [email protected]. Always make your room reservation directly with the information provided by API or a trusted source.

API will use all legal means possible to prevent these groups from operating.

Please contact [email protected] with any questions.
