Welcome to the Pipeline Association of Louisiana
The Pipeline Association of Louisiana (PAL) is an industry group comprised of hazardous gas and liquid pipeline operators in the State of Louisiana. Now in its fifth year of promoting public awareness, PAL’s primary goal is to educate the general public, emergency officials, and excavators about procedures and precautions to be aware while working around pipelines. Because pipelines are buried beneath the surface, it is important for the public to discern how to identify where pipelines exist before digging as well as what to do if a pipeline leak is suspected.
As a collaborative group of pipeline operators, members of PAL are able to share information pertaining to pipeline integrity, safety, communication, and damage prevention while reaching out to the public with a consistent and unified message. The purpose of this effort is to reach the most broad group of individuals to promote pipelines safety and awareness.
PAL prides itself on hosting engaging educational meetings each fall in 19 locations across the State of Louisiana. These meetings offer member company representatives and the public an opportunity to discuss pipeline safety in an interactive forum over either lunch or dinner. Representatives of each member company are available after the meetings to discuss any specific issues and provide promotional items pertaining to pipeline safety.
A schedule of dates and locations is provided in the meetings section of this site. Typically, an interactive lunch session is held for emergency officials, and a dinner in the evening for excavators. Sign up yourself and your co-workers to attend a PAL meeting in your area!
