Changes to PHMSA Portal, OMS Functions, OPID Contact Management

Over the past six years, pipeline operators have had the ability to update contacts for an OPID in the PHMSA Portal for the following:

  • Compliance Officers
  • Compliance Assistants
  • Inspections
  • Emergency Situations
  • Senior Executive Official
  • NPMS Submissions
  • Drug & Alcohol
  • User Fee

Some OPID have consistently updated contacts as they change while others have not. Also, PHMSA has identified the need for operators to provide a President/CEO contact to receive certain types of enforcement letters.

Effective August 28, 2020, operator staff have the ability to create and edit a President/CEO contact. Also, certain PHMSA staff now have edit rights to operator contacts so PHMSA can update contacts when operators have not.

If you have any questions about these changes to OPID Contact Management, please email or call the Pipeline Operator Hotline at 202-366-8075.
