Mission & Objectives
PRCI was established in 1952 as the Pipeline Research Committee of the American Gas Association to address the problem of long-running brittle fractures in natural gas transmission pipelines. In substantially solving that problem within two years, the Committee demonstrated the benefit of industry collaboration and leveraging voluntary industry funding.
First meeting of the Pipeline Research Committee, 1952.
With the commitment and technical expertise of its members, PRCI continues to develop dynamic research programs devoted to identifying, prioritizing, and implementing the industry’s core research objectives. As a result, PRCI has become a critical resource for all energy pipelines regardless of where they operate, how they operate, or the purpose of their operation.
Unique among all pipeline research organizations, PRCI brings together leading pipeline companies from around the world to engage in a collaborative process that is truly “of, by and for” the industry.
To be the global leader in collaborative energy pipeline research that provides safe, reliable, environmentally conscious and efficient means of delivery.
