April 2011 Vol. 66 No. 4

The Pipeline Research Council International (PRCI) hosted its fifth annual Pipeline Program Research Exchange Meeting on Feb. 1-3, at the Georgia Tech Hotel and Conference Center in Atlanta, GA.

The purpose of the meeting was to provide PRCI members with updates on key completed research and projects that have reached vital milestones. This research is focused on improving pipeline safety and integrity.

Attendance at the 2011 annual meeting reached record numbers, with the participation of over 230 attendees including PRCI member company representatives, key researchers in the pipeline industry, and U.S. and Canadian regulators.
An important secondary aspect of the meeting was the discussion of ideas for future work. Some of these ideas will be further developed and lead into the 2012 PRCI Research Program.
