API RP 1162 Seminar Offered by Paradigm

Paradigm® is offering a seminar designed to inform and educate members of the oil and gas industry on the recently enacted public education requirement, RP 1162. The seminar will be held in Denver, Colorado on Thursday, March 15, 9:00 am to 3:00 pm at the Holiday Inn Denver City Center, 1450 Glenarm Place. An overview of RP 1162 requirements will be given. RP 1162, part of the Pipeline Safety Improvement Act, provides pipeline operators with specific recommendations on their public education programs promoting pipeline safety. Specifically, the regulation identifies stakeholder audiences, outlines safety information to be communicated, defines message frequency and delivery methodologies, and provides evaluation guidelines for program effectiveness. The morning session of the seminar will address requirements, needs and solutions for transmission pipeline operators, and the afternoon session will focus on distribution operators. Seminar highlights include live demonstrations of the Paradigm® suite of public awareness tools. Open to all members of the oil and gas industry, the seminar is free of charge and participants will be served lunch.
