industry advances and current events education through professional development and collegiate scholarships and professional mentoring.

There are other Pipeliners Associations in the Southwest, Rocky Mountain and Appalachia regions with meetings held in cities such as San Antonio, Baton Rouge, Atlanta, Tulsa, Denver, and Pittsburgh.

The mission of the Pipeliners Association of Houston’s is to advance pipeline engineering and operation practices for the mutual benefit of the members and the industry.

The Association shall be both non-profit and non-political in character but may cooperate in civic enterprises.

The Pipeliners Association of Houston was formed in 1953 with the purpose to “foster and promote the advancement of pipeline operating practices and engineering for the mutual benefit of the members in the industry and to study and exchange knowledge and ideas relative to the pipeline industry.” The Association started with 6 members and continues to evolve and mature with our expanding network across the industry.

Our organization prides itself on maintaining a common bond between vendors, operators and contractors who support this industry. Over the years, we have grown in our focus of community and professional development. Today, monthly business meetings provide relevant presentations and discussions about our industry. Our volunteers host events to raise scholarship money for our member’s college students. We established the Pipeliners Young Professionals group in 2016 to encourage and support our next generation. In 2017, we partnered with PETEX to develop professional education for our members.

With this rich heritage, we expect to continue to develop as an Association and make lasting impacts on the Pipeline Industry.
