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

2 Dates and Locations
December 6 and January 11
Houston, TX and Pittsburgh, PA

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

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) is almost 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.

Pipeline Environmental Hazards from Cradle to Grave

risk assessment, mitigation, and managing/remediating release
December 7, 2017
Houston, TX

Pipeline Environmental Hazards from Cradle to Grave

Recently, the Pipeline Hazard Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has increased focus on managing environmental hazards to pipeline integrity. A number of Notice of Proposed Rulemakings (NPRMs) and completed rules require pipeline operators to incorporate geohazard risk assessments in their integrity management (IM) plans.

This training will provide participants with a cradle to grave approach for managing pipeline geohazards. This class will use water crossings as a case study for geohazard risk assessment and preparations required for releases.
 
Specific Course Topics Include:
  • Risk Identification and Management for River Crossings
  • Monitoring River Crossings: Traditional versus Modern Technology
  • Planning for a release: Ensuring you are ready
  • Mitigating Releases on Water Crossings
