DIMP Integrity Management for Gas Distribution: Report of Phase 1 Investigations (2005)

Four multi-stakeholder work/study groups were established to collect and analyze available information and to reach findings and conclusions to inform future work by the PHMSA relative to implementing integrity management principles for gas distribution pipelines. The groups have concluded that current pipeline safety regulations (49 CFR Part 192) do not now convey the concept of a risk-based distribution integrity management process and that it would be appropriate to modify the regulations to do so.
