Pipeline Safety: Government/Industry Pipeline Research and Development Forum

Notice of forum.

PHMSA executes a collaborative, coordinated, competitive and co-funded research and development (R&D) program with the pipeline industry and other Federal and State regulators. PHMSA periodically holds a Pipeline R&D Forum to generate recommendations on the future R&D required in addressing mutual challenges. Specifically, this forum will bring government and industry pipeline stakeholders together for the following purposes: (1) Develop recommendations to address the technical gaps & challenges for future R&D; (2) Identify both short and long term research objectives for liquid/gas transmission and gas distribution pipelines; (3) Quantify technical details on identified technical gaps so solicited research is addressing the need effectively; and (4) Provide details on the ultimate research goals so appropriate end users are factored into project scopes.
