Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Safety Regulations for Gas Operators

Workshop Background & Information: As our industry continues to experience a revolution from hydraulic fracturing, more and more companies are finding creative ways to utilize existing pipeline infrastructure. One such way is to convert assets to liquid transportation from gas only transportation. Regardless of installing new facilities to transport liquids or converting existing facilities, those that have historically had a background of regulations for gas pipelines (49 CFR Parts 190, 191, and 192) are now being asked to understand and work under regulations for hazardous liquids (49 CFR Part 195).

This workshop provides an opportunity to attendees to get a broad understanding of Part 195, but also focus in on the main differences and pitfalls to avoid when working on regulatory issues surrounding hazardous liquid pipelines.
