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 with one objective: to direct research enhancing the safety, reliability and productivity of the energy pipeline industry.
PRCI’s current membership includes companies operating in the United States, Canada, South America, Europe, Saudi Arabia, Asia, and Australia.
Pipeline Industry Organization Members
Pipeline Industry Organization membership is available to non-profit trade associations, charitable/educational organizations, not themselves directly involved in the pipeline industry but who support the mission of PRCI, whose membership includes companies eligible for membership in PRCI as Pipeline Operating Company Members, in whole or in part.
Each Pipeline Industry Organization Member has the same rights given to Pipeline Members including a representative on the Executive Assembly and Committees.
Associate membership and Technical Program Associate membership is available to companies that do not operate pipelines, but have a commitment to the energy pipeline industry and capabilities in technology transfer, particularly commercialization. Associate Members’ capabilities enable PRCI research to be deployed in the industry and the marketplace.
PRCI plans and develops research projects through Technical Committees (TC) focused on specific areas of pipeline research. TCs gather to review significant research results, provide oversight and management of specific projects where necessary, and to plan new and on-going objectives for research activities.
