Over the past month, the PRCI Technical Committees have completed their review of proposals submitted for the 2015 PRCI Research Portfolio and are in the process of finalizing a comprehensive research portfolio aligning with the industry's priorities to present to the Board of Directors for voting this Summer via an online ballot. The 2015 ballot will be the tennth annual ballot through which PRCI members allocate funds and resources directly to research of importance to their operations and business drivers. This upcoming ballot will feature programs that address Pipeline Leak Detection, Pipeline Right-of-Way Automated and Remote Monitoring, In-Line-Inspection Technology Improvements, and Mechanical Damage Detection & Characterization -- initiatives that will enhance operators' ability to ensure pipeline safety and integrity. Programs addressing needs of pipeline system facilities include Compressor Station Engine Air Toxics Control, Compressor Engine Performance & Emissions Reliability, Liquid Pump Performance and Storage Field Integrity. Altogether the ballot will contain over 100 projects, with over 30 incorporated into these programs and the remainder outlined as individual efforts. All entries contain significant detail on the rationale, objectives and deliverables of the proposed work. In 2014, roughly half of the funding allocation was directed to the Programs. PRCI members are encouraged to monitor the progress of the ballot by logging onto the ballot website. The ballot is expected to be posted on July 18, and a series of voting rounds will be conducted throughout the Summer with the final round taking place at the Board of Directors Meeting in Boston on September 9, 2014. A detailed schedule is available on the ballot website.
