APIA is the peak national body representing the interests of Australia’s high-pressure transmission pipeline sector, with a principal focus on long-distance oil and gas transmission but also including transportation of other liquids such as water and slurry. Our members include contractors, owners, operators, service providers, engineering companies and suppliers of pipeline products.
APIA is the “voice” of the Australian pipeline industry, representing the industry to the general public, other industries and to government, strongly arguing the industry’s case whenever and wherever required. The range of APIA committees provides input to the Association’s plans for the industry and are also avenues for exchange of information about issues of particular interest.
More than a decade ago the Association was reformed in order to expand from a solely contractors’ organisation to include owners and operators. This change has made APIA unique in the world in regard to pipeline associations.
