Australian Pipeline and Gas Association (APGA) has released a draft for their Pipeline Engineer Competency Standards for review.
The Pipeline Engineer Competency Standards create a framework to enable understanding, assessment and documentation of competency for pipeline engineers and are developed by panels of industry experts.
The standards can be used in many ways include training and developing pipeline engineering capabilities.
The standards cover several areas including maintenance of pipeline instrumentation, pipeline control system maintenance, operational corrosion protection, pump package maintenance and many more.
A panel of experts from APGA have written the standards and are now seeking feedback from the pipeline industry.
This draft contains eighteen newly detailed or revised competency standards from the onshore pipelines sector.
The review period for the Pipeline Engineer Competency Standards will close on Friday 22 January 2016.
