Information Sharing

Several industry workshops and forums occur to provide an opportunity for the dissemination of operator learnings. Additionally, companies have committed to building a repository of files, including presentations, spreadsheets, and videos, with valuable information detailing what they learned from an incident and how they changed their operation to prevent something similar from happening. These teachings can be invaluable, as other operators can review and similarly, take action to prevent a related occurrence. All of these learnings can be found on API’s PIPES (Pipeline Industry Practical Experience Sharing) Portal. Recognizing the sensitivity of some of the sharings, PIPES is restricted to operators only. However, an industry willing to share ensures that increased knowledge is spread throughout and pipeline safety is improved.
