Presentation: Pipeline Integrity – Geohazard Identification, Assessment, and Mitigation
Ben Taylor, Terracon Louisville
Tuesday, April 9, 10:50 am – 11:20 am
Pipeline failures due to external natural forces are significant failures impacting critical infrastructure and the safe and essential transport of oil and gas across our country. It is important for owners and stakeholders to proactively manage their geohazards risk and maintain pipeline integrity. PHMSA requires each owner to develop a Pipeline Integrity Management Plan (IMP) to safely manage the impact of geohazards such as landslides, karst features, abandoned mines, and faulting. Terracon has developed a pipeline geohazard management strategy to understand the importance of geohazards and how they impact new construction as well as existing alignments by combining knowledge of local geologic conditions and significant historical data with GIS-based systems to support a phased approach to identify, assess, and mitigate geohazard threats.
