AGA White Paper on MAOP Records Review

The American Gas Association (AGA) just released an “Industry Guidance on Records Review for Re-affirming Transmission Pipeline MAOPs.” The intent of the document is to provide general guidance to pipeline operators who are reviewing the MAOP for their existing transmission pipelines in response to recommendations made by the NTSB and PHMSA’s advisory bulletin issued January 10, 2011.

Operators may discover that some of the original records used to establish pipeline MAOP may now be missing or judged to be incomplete by today’s standards. This MAOP white paper offers a suggestion of practices when developing a plan or re-affirming their MAOP.
