Pipeline Marking Workshop Set for Feb. 20-21

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, a DOT unit, announced it will host a Feb. 20-21 workshop in Houston to update pipeline operators about pipeline markers and possible revisions to the first edition of American Petroleum Institute Recommended Practice 1162. Markers are placed above ground to indicate the presence of a buried pipeline; the workshop will explore requirements and situations where markers are not feasible.
From Aug. 8, 2006, to Oct. 15, 2007, pipeline operators submitted 1,568 public awareness programs to PHMSA for a centralized review. These public awareness programs are required by 49 CFR 192.616 and 49 CFR 195.440 to improve the awareness of pipeline safety among the affected public, emergency officials, local public officials, and excavators; the two regulations require operators to follow the guidance of RP 1162, Public Awareness Programs for Pipeline Operators, the first edition of which was published in December 2003. During the workshop, PHMSA will discuss summary statistics from the centralized review of the programs.
API typically publishes new editions of recommended practices every five years. The workshop, to be held at the Hotel Derek, 2525 West Loop South, will include a discussion of potential changes to RP 1162 for the second edition. For more information about the meeting, contact Blaine Keener at 202-366-0970 or [email protected].
