Pipeline Integrity Management Meeting Set

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives are jointly sponsoring the public meeting June 27 in Fort Worth, Texas.

A meeting to gauge gas distribution pipeline operators’ readiness for federal and state inspections of their integrity management programs has been set for June 27 in Fort Worth, Texas, by the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration and the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives. It is open to the public and will be webcast, according to PHMSA's announcement.

PHMSA and NAPSR representatives will discuss observations from initial inspections of operators' implemented integrity management programs.

PHMSA published a final rule in December 2009 setting requirements for ensuring the continued integrity of gas distribution pipelines; it gave operators until Aug. 2, 2011, to implement them. PHMSA and states have conducted some inspections and have many more inspections coming up, the notice says.

The meeting will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. CDT at the OMNI Hotel, 1300 Houston St., Fort Worth, TX 76102-6556; visit http://primis.phmsa.dot.gov/meetings/Home.mtg to register and for additional information.
