API trade group adopts pipeline safety principles

The pipeline subcommittee of the American Petroleum Institute (API) trade group adopted eight pipeline safety principles at meetings this week with industry operators and the Association of Oil Pipe Lines.

The principles, which evolved from operator experiences and API’s pipeline performance tracking system program, will help focus and improve industry safety programs and performance, the group said.

“The principles are evidence of our commitment to continuous safety improvement,” said Harry Pefanis, president of Plains All American Pipeline and chairman of AP’s pipeline committee.

“Industry’s adoption of these principles demonstrates our commitment and strengthens our ongoing efforts to improve our safety record,” he added.

API says the eight liquid pipeline safety principles are zero incidents, organization-wide commitment, a culture of safety, continuous improvement, learning from experience, systems for success, employing technology and communicating with stakeholders.

“Our members have worked hard to measure their performance and identify ways to improve,” said Peter Lidiak, pipeline director for API.

“While we’ve seen great improvement, more is needed to move us towards a goal of zero incidents.

“Adoption of these principles sends a clear message to the entire industry and the public that safety will continue to be of paramount importance.”
