PHMSA Regulations and Enforcement: What’s Next for Pipeline Safety?

Pittsburgh Airport Marriott
April 24, 2018
Pittsburgh, PA

PHMSA Regulations and Enforcement: What’s Next for Pipeline Safety?

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is just over a year into its transition to a new Administration. As the months pass, questions abound on the prospects for the numerous rulemakings currently underway at the agency. Numerous rules were prompted by statutory mandates from the 2011 and 2016 amendments to the Pipeline Safety Laws, while others reflect policy determinations of the outgoing administration.

Through the course of this agenda, we discuss the status of several rules including the hazardous liquid Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), gas transmission and gathering NPRM, the storage rule, and the class location Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPRM). We will go over the basics of PHMSA’s enforcement process including the various tools the agency uses to bring an enforcement case. We also discuss recent trends in PHMSA enforcement comparing previous years and administrations. This includes a review of the recent 5th Circuit decision in the ExxonMobil case and give a status update on other relevant PHMSA litigation.

Join us for an update on PHMSA rulemakings and policies and a discussion of what may be next for pipeline safety. This course will specifically focus on the enforcement regime governing pipeline safety at the federal level and provide an update on PHMSA rulemaking proceedings.
