On January 3, 2011, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) released safety recommendations P-10-1 through P-10-7 while investigating the pipeline rupture that occured on September 9, 2010 in San Bruno, CA. After reviewing the recommendations with AGA membership, AGA sent a letter to NTSB on June 14, 2011 to request a clarification the intended scope and applicability of recommendations P-10-1 through P-10-4. In many cases, these safety recommendations appear to conflict with existing language. In other instances, these recommendations omit key provisions of the pipeline safety regulations. AGA is hopeful that this clarification will will allow operators nationwide to focus finite resources on appropriate areas that will provide real improvement in pipeline safety rather than diluting efforts in areas that were never intended by the NTSB.
