The program will cover threat identification, grouping of system facilities for threat management, additional/accelerated actions to mitigate threats, and integrating these with current programs.
A key aspect of this seminar will be a discussion of risk management and threat identification concepts to assist in prioritizing operator actions.
Who should attend:
Gas distribution personnel in regulatory compliance, operational or engineering roles.
On completion of the course, participants will be eligible to receive 1.0 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
Participants will receive a detailed set of course notes for reference after the course, plus the AGA Gas Piping Technology Committee’s DIMP guidelines document: Appendix G-192-8 from the 2009 Guide for Gas Transmission and Distribution Piping Systems, and the PHMSA Phase 1 report on Integrity Management of Gas Distribution Pipelines.
