Global Pipeline Award
A project, product, device, system, service, approach or other can receive the award.
The GPA recognizes the pipeline technology innovation process in all phases; from the research laboratory through field applications; from technology incubators to development of markets for new products; from government agencies to private companies; and from individual projects to the consolidation of research and development results.
The PSD intends that the Award: promotes progress and international cooperation in the field of Pipeline Systems engineering;
supports achievements in pipeline engineering education; encourages the timely exchange of information among researchers and engineers; promotes technical activities, including conferences, in the field of Pipeline Technology;
promotes safety and the public welfare;
promotes global environment preservation;
and promotes public recognition of the pipeline industry.
