API Midstream Group Director Robin Rorick reinforced the oil and natural gas industry’s core value of safety and goal of zero incidents as the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) issued a proposal on natural gas transmission.
“We are currently reviewing the new PHMSA rule. Safety is our industry’s core value,” said Rorick. “As we assess the content of the rule, we will be looking to ensure that any proposed change to the current regulatory framework does not compromise safety.
“Our industry continues to lead on creating new standards to enhance pipeline safety, and we look forward to working with PHMSA to ensure this new rule works with ongoing industry efforts to achieve our joint goal of zero incidents.”
