Just as PRCI serves as the locus of the energy pipeline industry’s collaboration on research development, there are several key trade associations in the United States that represent the economic, legislative, and regulatory interests of the industry. For many of these organizations, PRCI has provided essential technical support to the advocacy of important industry initiatives undertaken in these organizations for the benefit of their members and the industry at large. By continually working to grow and expand its relationship with these organizations, PRCI is able to both inform its technical program, and identify research opportunities for the membership and the industry. PRCI and these organizations benefit from the fact that each shares many common members.
The following are the key trade associations with which PRCI participates in both formal and informal ways. And, in the case of the Association of Oil Pipe Lines, the relationship has been translated into membership:
- American Gas Association (AGA)
- Association of Oil Pipe Lines (AOPL)
- INGAA Foundation
- International Pipeline & Offshore Contractors Association (IPLOCA)
- Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA)
- NACE International (NACE)
- Southern Gas Association (SGA)
In order to increase the scope of its research program, leverage its available subscription resources, and share knowledge, PRCI has developed relationships of varying degrees of formality with the following organizations and groups having complementary interests. And, in the case of the Australian Pipeline Industry Association, the relationship has been translated into membership:
- Australian Pipeline Industry Association (APIA)
- Centro de Tecnologia em Dutos / Pipeline Technology Center (CTDUT)
- European Gas Research Group (GERG)
- European Pipeline Research Group (EPRG)
- International Gas Union (IGU)
- NYSEARCH/Northeast Gas Association (NGA)
PRCI is justifiably recognized as the preeminent collaborative R&D program in the world through its engagement with a multitude of research development organizations ranging from large, multi-discipline corporations and nonprofit institutions to small, pipeline niche firms to major colleges and universities. With direction and funding from PRCI, these organizations develop the research that PRCI member companies and the wider industry apply on pipeline systems around the world.
