Our objectives

EPRG utilises the combined expertise of its member companies to address issues of common interest concerning the technical integrity of gas transmission pipelines, in the areas of pipe manufacture, pipeline design, construction, operation and maintenance.

EPRG's overall aims and objectives are:

  • To identify methods and practices for improving the integrity of existing and new pipelines, thereby ensuring the continued excellent record of pipeline safety and reliability demonstrated by gas transmission pipelines in Europe and elsewhere


  • To establish research programmes in response to the identified needs and priorities, and to develop recommendations and guidelines based on the results obtained


  • To promote and encourage the acceptance and implementation of the recommendations and guidelines by the gas pipeline industry
