Gas pipeline safety video released

APGA is the peak national body representing the interests of Australia’s high-pressure transmission pipeline sector, with a principal focus on long-distance oil and gas transmission but also including transportation of other liquids such as water and slurry. Their members include contractors, owners, operators, service providers, engineering companies and suppliers of pipeline products.

In mid 2016 we were contracted to produce a video for emergency services personnel on how to manage their safety in the case of an incident involving a transmission gas pipeline. The video outline a number of scenarios and feature role-plays conducted on Torrens Island with a full emergency response team. Members of the South Australian Police, Metropolitan Fire Service and South Australian Ambulance Services all took part. The project was coordinated and managed by SEA Gas, one of our clients and a key stakeholder in the national network. Thanks to Steve Dobbie from APGA and all the key people from the agencies who took part. The video is rolling out nationally.

It was great to work with some of the best people in the industry and emergency services spectrum.
