"Never allow short-term business pressures to blind you to the real and potentially devastating human and business consequences of neglecting process safety and asset integrity" (Judith Hackitt, Chair of the Health and Safety Executive, United Kingdom)

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, March 28, 2010 - Ageing North African oil, gas and petrochemical infrastructures means
that major decisions and investments are required in order to repair,
rehabilitate and extend the working life of existing facilities.

Asset integrity is therefore increasingly important for the region's
industry in order to improve operations and profitability. Implementing a
life-cycle asset integrity management programme allows maintaining assets in
a fit-for-service condition, while also extending the asset life-cycle in the
most reliable, safe and cost-effective manner.

IQPC's Asset Integrity Management - Egypt will provide practical
knowledge on the systems and strategies needed to implement an efficient
Asset Integrity Management programme. Held in Cairo from the 13 to 16 June
, the sixth event in IQPC's successful annual series will bring together
international key speakers to share best-practice implementations of Asset
Integrity Management.

Abdulaziz Al-Ajaji, ID/OID/Inspection Engineering Unit, Saudi Aramco,
described IQPC events, "A place for regional learning and meeting technical

Chowdury A Masud, Integrity Services Section Leader, ADMA OPCO, qualifies
IQPC Asset Integrity Management events as, "An excellent technical forum for
exchange of updated and innovative developments in Asset Integrity Management
around the globe".

Steven Cooke, Senior Quality Management Engineer, ADGAS, described IQPC
Asset Integrity Management events as, "A forum that provides an excellent
opportunity to meet with other professionals to share obstacles and solutions
in integrity management implementation".

Michael Magerstadt, Corporate Manager, Rosen Swiss AG, declared at Asset
Integrity Management Abu Dhabi 2009 that, "The high attendance at a time of
economic downturn shows that this is considered a key networking event".

Asset Integrity Management - Egypt will be the region's ultimate
networking platform for the oil and gas industry and an opportunity to
exchange best practices and practical solutions that can be implemented to
extend the asset life-cycle and enhance safety and reliability.

The conference will be chaired by Dominic Paisley, Integrity Management
General Manager at GUPCO and Abdulaziz O. Al-Ajaji, ID/OID/Inspection
Engineering Unit at Saudi Aramco. Attendees will benefit from four days of
industry-leading presentations, interactive panel sessions and exclusive
workshops. Further details can be obtained at www.assetintegrityegypt.com
