About the Pipeline Industries Guild

The Pipeline Industries Guild was formed in 1957. Since then, it has evolved to be the only association world-wide to cater directly for the needs of the pipeline industry, regardless of engineering discipline, application, or qualification.

The Guild's membership comprises those with interests in pipelines world-wide, transporting hydrocarbon products, chemicals, water, wastewater, and many other substances, both on and offshore. All are governed by the industry's twin need to combine quality with safety, while at the same time meeting all the latest environmental and legislative requirements.

The Guild is the respected authority within all branches of the pipeline industry, and there are few pipeline engineering problems its members cannot solve. Part of its increasing and unique strength is the Guild's ability to attract members from all sides of the pipeline industry, whether they be concerned with deep-sea pipelines or with the latest developments on land in no-dig and minimal-disturbance pipe and duct-laying technology.

The Pipeline Industries Guild, has a clear vision of its future, in which it will broaden its pipeline-engineering interests and continue to cater for the ever-widening horizons of its expanding membership.

From the point of view of pipeline engineering in all its aspects, the Pipeline Industries Guild is the place where the disciplines meet, and where leading-edge technology is discussed, analysed and disseminated.

As well as its technical functions, the Guild members participate in a broad range of social activities, some of the most well-known of which are the yearly Branch Dinners and the Annual Dinner in London. For more information please check our events calendar here.
