The Permian Basin Association of Pipeliners (PBAP) is a 501(c)(6) non profit organization that provides "peer-to-peer" networking for professionals involved in the pipeline and oil and gas-related industries, especially in the Permian Basin area of West Texas.
Members meetings occur monthly and include time for networking, lunch or dinner, and a guest speaker. Meeting topics can range from safety and technical issues important to the industry, governmental affairs, and academia's efforts to prepare the next generation of teammates toward a career in the oil and gas industry.
Opportunities to join committees to work specific issues being addressed by the Association are available to all members.
PBAP also hosts multiple fundraising events like team ropings, golf tournaments, and clay shoots that benefit a local scholarship program. These scholarships help to prepare Permian Basin students for future careers in the oil and gas industries.
