[Docket No. PHMSA–2015–0139]
PHMSA will hold a public workshop on Wednesday, September 9, 2015, and Thursday, September 10, 2015, in the Washington DC area, to advance risk modeling methodologies of gas transmission and hazardous liquid pipelines and non-pipeline systems. This workshop will bring industry, Federal and state regulators, interested members of the public, and other stakeholders together to share knowledge and experience on risk modeling within the pipeline industry and other fields, ways to advance pipeline risk models, and practical ways that operators can adopt and/or adapt them to the analyses of their systems.
PHMSA is inviting abstracts on relevant engineering and technical modeling considerations related to advancing pipeline risk models, and risk modeling methodologies used in other non-pipeline applications. PHMSA recognizes that other industries may offer potential ideas and solutions to risk modeling that are applicable to pipelines and therefore encourages participation in the solicitation from outside of the pipeline industry and outside of industrial applications. Each author of an accepted abstract will be invited to make a short presentation at the workshop.
To be considered for presentation at the upcoming workshop, authors must submit abstracts to the docket PHMSA–2015–0139 and email Kenneth Lee at Kenneth.firstname.lastname@example.org by July 15, 2015. PHMSA will notify authors by email by July 31, 2015, whether their abstracts were accepted for presentation. Each author of an accepted abstract will be invited to make a short presentation at the workshop. Members of the public may also submit written comments either before or after the workshop. Comments should reference Docket No. PHMSA–2015–0139.
