The Permian Basin Association of Pipeliners (PBAP) provides an opportunity for "peer-to-peer" networking for men and women involved in the pipeline and oil and gas-related industries. Monthly meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month in Midland. Meetings include time for networking, a buffet lunch, and a guest speaker. Topics range from safety and technical issues important to the industry, governmental affairs affecting the industry, and academia's efforts to prepare and influence the next generation of leaders and teammates toward a career in the oil and gas industry.
A primary goal of the Permian Basin Association of Pipeliners is to provide scholarships to students who are pursuing a degree in STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and students who are pursuing an applied technology associate degree or certificate in an industry-related field.
Funds for scholarships will be raised through events such as team roping, golf tournaments, clay shoots, and other fundraising events held throughout the year. Applications are accepted until April 30 (deadline extended!) and are then reviewed and evaluated. The scholarships shall be awarded directly to the student's school after July 1 and will be effective for the scholastic year commencing in September. From qualified scholarship applications, one half of the scholarship recipients selected shall be relatives of Permian Basin Association of Pipeliners’ members in good standing. A member in good standing for scholarship purposes shall have paid dues for a minimum of two years. In addition, the sponsoring member must have attended a minimum of four (4) meetings, as evidenced by attendance records during the calendar year preceding the review of his/her relative's application. The other half of the scholarship award eligibility shall be to full time (minimum 12 hours) students who have been recommended by a college or university dean of math, science, or engineering.
Opportunities to join committees to work specific issues being addressed by the Association are available to all members.
