APGA's Security and Integrity Foundation (SIF) has put together SHRIMP - which stands for “Simple, Handy, Risk-based Integrity Management Plan.” It is an online tool that operators of gas distribution systems may use to create a written Distribution Integrity Management Plan (DIMP).
SHRIMP produces a complete, written DIMP plan customized for the specific needs of the user. It is much more than a model plan. It is more like Turbo-Tax, which asks questions about a user’s finances and creates an income tax return ready to sign and submit. SHRIMP asks questions about the user’s distribution infrastructure and creates a written DIMP plan ready to implement.
