October 2017

The October issue opens with a report on the Middle East; specifically the current tensions between Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Contributor Ng Weng Hoong writes that: “As recent as May, the scenario of an open intra-conflict among Sunni Arab nations did not feature in any mainstream risk analysis of the Middle East […] Equally surprising, the oil and gas markets have paid little heed to this latest geopolitical upheaval.” Also in this issue are articles on pipe supports, trenchless technology , pipeline equipment and composite coatings.
