On August 27, 2015, from 9:00 AM EST to 4:50 PM EST, PHMSA will host a meeting about the proposed Hazardous Liquid Integrity Verification Process (HL IVP) at the Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport, 1999 Jefferson Davis Highway Arlington VA 22202 [Phone 703-413-5500].
The Integrity Verification Process is to confirm the Maximum Operating Pressure (MOP) when pipeline records are not traceable, verifiable, or complete. PHMSA held a similar workshop in August 2013 on the Integrity Verification Process for gas transmission pipelines, to help address several mandates in the Pipeline Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation Act of 2011 and National Transportation Safety Board recommendations. At this 1-day workshop, PHMSA will present a proposal for Integrity Verification Process for hazardous liquid pipelines, and have presentations of perspectives from pipeline operators, state regulatory partners, and the public.
Earlier draft material provided to stakeholders along with comments in response are available via the same public docket that will be used for this workshop (PHMSA-2014-0150) or the direct link: http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=PHMSA-2014-0150.
