Pipeline Groups Advance Facility Safety, Inspections

The INGAA Foundation and Canadian Energy Pipeline Association (CEPA) Foundation recently released The Practical Guide for Facility Inspectors, providing real-world guidance to ensure all oil and natural gas transmission pipeline facility inspectors maintain a uniform focus on compliance with design standards, heightened awareness of higher-risk activities, and emphasis on delivering predictable results.

“By creating a clear, concise oil and natural gas facility inspector guidance, we expect to revitalize and bring consistency to the facility inspector role as a viable, professionally recognized career choice for young people,” said INGAA Foundation Executive Director Tony Straquadine. “Moreover, we expect this inspection program will build public confidence in the U.S. and Canadian energy industry, including oil and natural gas pipeline facilities.”

In addition to transmission pipelines, inspected facilities include compressor stations, pumping stations, meter and regulator stations.
