Membership of EPRG allows manufacturers access to an invaluable knowledge base of industry experts, allowing greater understanding of end users' needs through close customer contact.
This in turn allows essential influence on industry standards to maintain balance between line pipe integrity and realistic material performance.
We collaborate with pipeline & service contractors and oil & gas companies to develop new technologies, materials and concepts to improve the reliability, safety and competitiveness of pipeline transport.
We strive to provide an environment for collaborative research into line pipe materials and testing to improve application based characterisation and understanding of material performance during manufacture and in service.
We need to gather unique and insightful feedback on performance of line pipe products in operation.
We benefit from the provision of greater funding potential for specialist material characterisation and research.
