PHMSA’s Proposed Rules for Natural Gas: Breaking Down the Regulations and their Impact Across Gathering and Transmission Systems

2 dates and Locations:
Pittsburgh, Aug 30
Houston, Oct 25

PHMSA’s Proposed Rules for Natural Gas: Breaking Down the Regulations and their Impact Across Gathering and Transmission Systems

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has released a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to substantially revise its rules (at 49 CFR Part 192) around the testing and integrity of pipeline systems, validation of data and records as well as the expansion and additional regulation of gathering lines.

There are at least five (5) significant rulemakings that will transform the regulatory requirements for pipelines in the near future and in the decades to come. These changes seek to address dozens of Congressional mandates, National Transportation Safety Board recommendations, General Accountability Office reports as well as other organizations. These changes will impact virtually every aspect of pipeline regulations including operator qualifications, control room management, integrity management, risk modeling, and the applicability of requirements to gathering operations.

UAS for Utilities: Building a Use Case for Drones and UAVs

Burns & McDonnell World Headquarters
September 15, 2016
Kansas City, MO

UAS for Utilities: Building a Use Case for Drones and UAVs

UAS or Unmanned Aerial Systems, with Unmanned Aerial Vechicle (UAVs) or drones, have the potential to revolutionize the electric and gas utility industry. UAVs are proving to be powerful tools for utilities in the areas of maintenance inspections and operations, storm recovery evaluations, construction surveying and land surveying/GIS. Utilities and their service providers have begun to evaluate and use drones for a variety of business units to reduce costs, improve responsiveness, enhance safety and foster environmental compliance.

This conference provides a comprehensive overview of the issues electric and gas utilities need to know when evaluating the why and how of developing a drone program. Discussion includes relevant policy and regulations, utility experience with building use cases for UAS and important considerations when deciding how to structure a drone program within your organization.

Renewable Energy Contracts Clinic

WAPA's Electric Power Training Center
October 13, 2016
Golden, CO

Renewable Energy Contracts Clinic

When done well, renewable energy (RE) project contracts align incentives, communicate and facilitate a smooth process and allocate risk and reward fairly and efficiently. Understanding the anatomy of RE project contracts and prioritizing issues can help reduce transaction costs, which benefits everyone. In addition, understanding a counterparty's needs and culture can lead to easier negotiations with better outcomes
 
The focus of this training is on contracting for renewable energy (RE) projects that involve utilities in some capacity, rather than direct contracting between providers and consumers or contracting for energy projects that don't involve putting electricity on the grid. While many fundamental contract and energy project principles apply to RE projects, certain aspects of RE and RE projects drive some differences in contracting. This course examines these RE specific contracts and provisions.
