The Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA)’s regulatory requirements for the design, construction, operations, maintenance, and integrity management of pipelines are performance-based, and all pipeline owner and operators across the US must comply. There is an expectation that all these regulated entities, including natural gas utilities, incorporate industry best practices, recommendations from voluntary consensus standards, and other actions specific to their operations to ensure public safety. Public gas utilities focus on safe operations, and effective pipeline safety programs implemented by state and federal regulators support our member’s ability to deliver energy to Americans.
