The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) released the first of three phases of the “Gas Mega Rule” in October of 2019. The impacts of this ruling will significantly affect certain pipeline operation and maintenance activities that operators use to ensure the safety and reliability of their pipeline assets. Since then, Transmission pipeline operators have been working diligently towards additional or modified procedures they must have in place by July 1st.
Furthermore, in April of this year PHMSA released a stay of enforcement that provides operators flexibility with regard to certain initial compliance deadlines. For many operators that are now becoming familiar with PHMSA’s new rulings, there is a vast amount of information to digest to truly understand what mandates are priority with the correct deadline for completion.
Dynamic Risk’s Director of Technical Services, Ben Mittelstadt, will present key information from the ruling to assist operators with these requirements, including:
- Background to Proposed Rule (revising 49 CFR Parts 191 and 192)
- Industry Challenges and Changes to Business Practices
- Significant Highlights of the October 1st, 2019 Ruling and Details on Stay of Enforcement
- Material Verification
- MAOP Verification
- Expansion of Integrity Management Beyond HCAs
- Considerations for Operations and Maintenance Procedures
Please join us on Tuesday, June 2nd at 11:00 am CST to learn more about the impacts of these regulations for transmission operators and best practices that apply to Operations and Maintenance.
