Pipeline SMS as a P&M Program for Transmission Pipelines
13 May 2022

Preventive and Mitigative (P&M) regulations such as 49 CFR 192.935 for Gas Transmission Pipeline Integrity Management have traditionally focused on physical risks and threats to pipeline assets.

The non-physical risk of organizational failure has not been stressed enough. Yet, this risk is tied to some of the most high-profile and damaging pipeline incidents of the last 20+ years.

Transmission operators can use Pipeline SMS (PSMS / API 1173) as a method to root out organizational failure as part of their P&M program. Download our whitepaper to learn more about:

  • PSMS as an Effective Prevention and Mitigation Methodology.
  • How API 1173 Addresses Organizational Failure.
  • The Value of Executing the Full Plan-Do-Check-Act (PDCA) Cycle.
  • The Use of Tools to Achieve Natural Compliance for Prevention & Mitigation.
