About Us

Welcome to the  Appalachian Pipeliners Association.

The organization was established to promote and support the pipeline industry in the northeastern United States and provide members with opportunities to support the industry, as well.

We appreciate your interest and hope that you will be an active participant in helping to advance our industry, as well as provide financial support to students who are seeking to join us in transporting safe, reliable energy to the market.


Our industry faces many new challenges this year.
Funding for new projects and the construction of pipelines will face challenges. Renewables have come a long way but do not substitute our consumption of oil and gas and products derived from these sources of energy. Therefore, replacement of current facilities, restoration, new smaller projects, and clean natural gas are fast becoming the new normal.
Now more than ever, it is imperative that we combine our resources and work together as an industry. This is what Appalachian Pipeliners is all about. Our mission is to raise money for scholarships so that students majoring in environmental and related degrees will seek a future in this industry. Over the last three years we have been fortunate enough to help student graduates financially by providing over $150,000 in scholarship funds. This year the industry will help students with another $50,000 toward their education.

Some of our goals at Appalachian Pipeliners Association for this year include, growth in membership, and increasing owner operators’ involvement. We plan to achieve these goals by supplying value to our members. We still intend to have our golf and clay shoot events, and to have great speaker events along with major networking opportunities to help grow careers.

I look forward to my role as president this year.
