Available Courses

Our DOT Pipeline compliance workshops are appropriate for people who are new to pipeline regulations, who could use a refresher, or anyone who needs to know the recent changes and developments in the regulations. Courses are offered throughout the year at our dedicated training facility in Houston, and virtually.

This workshop is applicable for anyone who is new to, or has an interest in, pipeline regulations; those who could use a refresher; or anyone who needs a better understanding of recent changes and developments in pipeline regulations, including PHMSA Advisory Bulletins and new, pending and proposed rulemakings.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

Our popular 3-day workshop provides participants with an overview of Gas and Liquid pipeline operations, engineering concepts and compliance requirements, as well as a clear understanding of how the regulatory process works.

WORKSHOP TOPICS INCLUDE:
  • An overview of DOT/OPS pipeline compliance requirements in 49 CFR 191, 192, 194, 195, and 199
  • State and Federal agency roles for pipeline safety
  • PHMSA Jurisdiction
  • PHMSA Inspections and Enforcement Processes
  • Engineering Concepts and Stress – Strain Relationships; %SMYS
  • Design Requirements
  • Construction Requirements
  • Corrosion Control Concepts and Requirements
  • Operations and Maintenance Requirements
  • Emergency Response Requirements
  • Damage Prevention Programs
  • Operator Qualification Programs
  • Drug and Alcohol Programs
  • Public Awareness Programs
  • Integrity Management (gas and liquid) Programs
  • Control Room Management Programs

We have been heavily involved throughout this rulemaking process and are ready to assist operators as they get prepared. Whether it’s a deep dive into MAOP records reconfirmation, conducting Engineering Critical Assessments, assessing where your Moderate Consequence Areas exist, developing Material Verification plans, reviewing existing pipeline integrity programs, developing action plans to get into compliance, or simply providing training to your team on what’s coming, we can help.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

There is a lot to unpack with this rule. This workshop will not only dive deep into the rule requirements and some of its nuances; there will also be several practical and interactive exercises for the audience to perform, ensuring they come away knowledgeable not only with “what” is required, but also “how” to conduct certain analyses that are new to the gas transmission pipeline regulations. These exercises will include how to conduct an Engineering Critical Assessment, how to calculate estimated remaining life of your pipelines, how to develop material sampling plans, how to determine TVC records and extract the required data for validated MAOP calculations, and how to plan and execute a spike test.

In this webinar, we will unpack the new gas gathering final rule that becomes effective on May 16, 2022. PHMSA estimates approximately 425,000 miles of previously exempt gas gathering lines will now be regulated as either Type C or Type R regulated gas gathering pipelines. The webinar will include useful information how to determine whether a pipeline is classified as a Type A, B, C or R gas gathering line and will walk through what sections of Parts 191 and 192 apply to these newly regulated pipelines. Participants will come away with a thorough understanding of the new requirements and what they would need to do to prepare for implementation.
