Pipeline Integrity Management Using GIS
Track: Pipeline Transmission
Author(s): Bonnie Freeman
Pipeline safety rules are currently being promulgated by the Department of Transportation regarding integrity management for hazardous liquid and natural gas pipelines. This paper describes how a GIS can integrate data about the pipeline (e.g., engineering aspects, internal testing results) with data in the environment (e.g., ecological resources, drinking water resources) to facilitate compliance and improve communication and decisions about the pipeline from the planning department to the emergency response team.
