|[Docket No. PHMSA-2005-23198] |
As mentioned in our January newsletter, PHMSA and the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives (NAPSR) are hosting a workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 28 and Wednesday, March 1, 2006, at the Houston Marriott Westchase to address pipeline safety issues with mechanical damage. This workshop will provide a forum to share information on mechanical damage among pipeline operators, state agencies, technical experts, and the public. Workshop attendees will discuss and see existing and future technology used to prevent, detect and characterize mechanical damage. Participants will discuss and learn about prevention, detection, and characterization technologies for mechanical damage. This information will aid PHMSA in coordinating actions to address the problems mechanical damage poses in operating natural gas and hazardous liquid pipelines.
To facilitate meeting planning, advance registration is strongly encouraged. Please visit the Meeting Registration and Document Commenting web page ( http://primis.phmsa.dot.gov/meetings/) where PHMSA will post details about the meeting.
