RCP Underground Storage Services & Gas Storage Facility Procedures

RCP is well known for DOT/PHMSA expertise, but did you know that we also focus on related assets? We have developed integrity management programs and operating procedures for both reservoir and salt dome gas storage facilities across the US. RCP can develop, review, update or verify your gas storage facility procedures as recommended in API RP 1170.

RCP’s staff supported the development of the new API Recommended Practice 1170 “Design and Operation of Solution-mined Salt Caverns Used for Natural Gas Storage” (published July, 2015). Our site specific risk analysis program using Monte Carlo methods (published at the International Pipeline Conference in paper IPC2014-33171) provides an excellent tool to conduct risk analysis calculations at underground storage facilities. We are well-positioned to support your organization’s response to the recent PHMSA advisory bulletin as well as the California Emergency rule on underground gas storage.
