Organization & Governance

Every year, PRCI produces a collaborative research program aligning with the industry’s priorities by means of an annual voting ballot. Members allocate funds directly to projects of importance to their operations and business drivers. PRCI is governed by an Executive Assembly, comprised of one voting representative from each Pipeline Member company, Pipeline Indusry Organization member, and full Associate Member company. Of the Pipeline Member companies represented on the Executive Assembly, nine members are elected to serve on an Executive Board which also consists of the Chair, Vice Chair, and Immediate Past Chair of the Executive Assembly.

  • Pipeline membership is open to companies operating natural gas transmission and crude oil and petroleum products pipelines (“energy pipelines”).
  • Associate Membership is not based on the operation of pipelines, but on a company’s capability to enable PRCI research to be deployed in the industry and the marketplace.
  • PRCI’s current membership includes companies operating in the United States, Canada, Europe, Saudi Arabia, South America, Australia and Asia.

For more information: Please visit the Membership section of our website to learn more about the roles and benefits of each type of membership.

PRCI plans and develops research projects through Technical Committees (TCs). These committees are comprised of technical and operations experts from member companies. They are critical in developing and managing PRCI’s research and assure collaboration in identifying gaps and avoiding duplication.

For more information, please visit Technical Committees in the Research section of our website to learn more about each of our committees.

PRCI provides an experienced professional staff — with extensive experience in the energy pipeline industry or in related industries or fields of government — for contract and program management, meeting planning, and project administration.
