BakerRisk actively brings industrial partners together to amplify their research dollars through our Joint Industry experimental and analytical research programs.   The JIPs also provide a forum for participating companies to exchange information and experiences, discuss common practices, and share approaches for dealing with regulatory bodies.

With three currently active Joint Industry Programs (JIPs), we work closely with industry leading companies to address hazards that are common to participating companies.  BakerRisk proposes pertinent research projects to each JIP on an annual basis, focusing our research efforts on real world solutions that solve problems on an international scale.  Our commitment to improving safety helps companies mitigate risks to their assets, employees, and the public. Studies may be analytical or experimental, and typically result in the development of software, guidance, or other information that can be regularly used by participating companies.

Pressure Testing Research Cooperative (PTRC)

The PTRC is focused on understanding and mitigating hazards common to the oilfield tool and service industry by sharing the costs and benefits of research projects.

Explosion Research Cooperative (ERC)

For over 25 years, the Explosion Research Cooperative (ERC) sponsored research has improved the knowledge of explosion hazards and mitigation solutions through joint industry program.

Mud Plug Testing Research Cooperative

The research conducted by the MPTRC provides pipeline companies with validated data to help predict the performance of mud plugs used as a vapor barrier and address safety concerns during pipeline maintenance activities.

Ammonia & Fertilizer Joint Industry Program

The Ammonia and Fertilizer Research Cooperative (AFRC) leverages international industry experience to improve the safety of ammonia and fertilizer operations.

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
