Description
 
The nationäó»s 2.5 million mile network of hazardous liquid and natural gas pipelines includes more than 400,000 miles of äóģtransmissionäó¯ pipelines, which transport products from processing facilities to communities and large-volume users. To minimize the risk of leaks and ruptures, the Dept. of Transportationäó»s (DOT) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Admin. (PHMSA) requires pipeline operators to develop incident response plans. Pipeline operators with pipelines in highly populated and environmentally sensitive areas (äóģhigh-consequence areasäó¯) are also required to consider installing automated valves. This report examines (1) opportunities to improve the ability of transmission pipeline operators to respond to incidents; and (2) the advantages and disadvantages of installing automated valves in high-consequence areas and ways that PHMSA can assist operators in deciding whether to install valves in these areas. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
