How the Regulatory Changes to the Oil and Gas Transportation Network Affects Your Bottom Line

The Protecting Our Infrastructure of Pipelines and Enhancing Safety (PIPES) Act signed by former president Barack Obama on June 22, 2016, strengthens the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration’s (PHMSA’s) safety authority and includes many provisions that will help PHMSA fulfill its mission of protecting people and the environment by advancing the safe transportation of energy and other hazardous materials. With a new administration in place, what role does the legislation play in the safety and effectiveness of the country’s 2.6 million miles of pipeline?

The PIPES Act of 2016 promises that regulators will be more dynamic and data-driven. The law authorizes regulatory certainty for citizens, the safety community, and the industry. But in the current political environment, what does that really mean for the regulated community?

Operators and safety personnel must stay abreast of rapid changes in safety and security regulations. Join this webinar with expert speaker Tamar J. Cerafici, where you will get to explore the regulatory underpinnings of the country’s oil and gas transportation network. You’ll finish with a broad understanding of the regulations, but more importantly you’ll understand how the location and maintenance of this important infrastructure segment affects your bottom line. Tamar will also provide an in-depth analysis of the new legislation, current enforcement strategies, and tools for implementing security, maintenance, and training requirements in your project.
