Once again, RCP is a proud sponsor of this event and we look forward to seeing you there. The Pipeline Conference is followed by a Control Room Forum and a Leak Detection Forum which will run simultaneously (Wednesday afternoon through Thursday noon). The Leak Detection Workshop is the first of its kind, and will be a great opportunity for leak detection personnel in member companies to learn more about implementing API RP 1175, Leak Detection Program Management. In addition to learning more about the document and how to put its guidance into practice, attendees will get to hear from 3 pipeline executives on their efforts to ensure their company has the right leak detection culture. PHMSA will give their input on what they would like to see from industry, as well as an update on the regulator’s R&D efforts related to leak detection.
