A focus on safety, information-sharing and adapting to meet challenges as they arise have enabled the peak association representing Australia’s pipeline industry to reach 50 years of age.
APGA President Dave Maloney said hundreds of APGA members had volunteered their time and expertise to continuously improve the industry.
“Much of the important development of products and services the association achieves takes place via the work of our committees,” Mr Maloney told the 2018 APGA Annual Convention and Exhibition in Darwin.
“These play a key role in information-sharing, and in helping industry participants know, understand and implement best practice.
“Over the past decades, committees have produced a significant number of codes of practice, guidelines and the like. Most significantly has been the contribution of APGA members to the development of the Australian Standard for Petroleum Pipelines AS 2885.
“These have all been developed to meet needs arising in the industry which are brought to the committees through members’ participation in those bodies.”
