AGA-INGAA Joint Response to NTSB Safety Recommendation
Following the investigation of the natural gas transmission pipeline accident in the town of San Bruno California, the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued a series of recommendations, one of which was directed to the American Gas Association (AGA) and the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA). It stated:
Report to the National Transportation Safety Board on your progress to develop and introduce advanced in-line inspection platforms for use in gas transmission pipelines not currently accessible to existing in-line inspection platforms, including a timeline for implementation of these advanced platforms. (P-11-32) (emphasis added)
The AGA/INGAA joint response, reporting on the progress that has been made to advance technologies for traditionally unpiggable pipelines, has been delivered to the NTSB.
