Infocast’s B2BWebinars.net, the leader in business intelligence on the Web, is scheduled to host the webinar titled Pipeline Safety: Complying with MAOP Guidance, on November 20, 2012.
The Pipeline Safety Act of 2011 set out an ambitious program to ensure the safety of gas, oil and other hazardous liquid pipelines, but recent critical comments by an NTSB review of an Enbridge spill in Michigan called for further action on the regulatory front.
Oil and gas pipeline operators are being called on to verify MAOP and MOP via a laborious examination of paper records and alternative methods if needed, add remotely operated and automated pressure relief and excess control valves in HCA areas, upgrade inspection technology, and reexamine control room technology and procedures.
However, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) recently issued guidance to operators that the MAOP and MOP of all gas and liquid pipeline segments are supported by "traceable, verifiable and complete" records does not completely spell out what would meet those qualifications, and the final shape of how safety technology and procedures should be upgraded is not clear.
The webinar’s roundtable discussion will provide in-depth information on the PHMSA guidance, drawing the lines on verification, interpreting the guidance on ‘traceable, verifiable and complete” documents, what one needs to present as well as what they want to see and more.
