October 11 – PIX: The purpose of the PIX is to allow for the open exchange of lessons learned from recent pipeline incidents or near miss events. PIX is limited to participation by pipeline operating company personnel.
October 12 – Pipeline Integrity Workshop: API has worked with its members to recently publish several new or revised RPs providing best practice guidance on many areas of pipeline integrity management, including data integration, appropriate uses of hydrostatic testing, pipeline cracking, and water crossing integrity management. On October 12th, these documents will be highlighted to operators, and representatives from pipeline companies will share on their efforts to implement the guidance in the RPs. There will also be break-out sessions allowing operators to share amongst each other how they address pipeline integrity challenges, with particular focus on data integration, appropriate uses of hydrostatic testing, pipeline cracking, and water crossing integrity management.
