  • State Website transparency Parameters and points Instructions for scoring – Summer 2012 | Pipeline Safety Trust
    card last year several states recognized the need for better public access to more pipeline safety information and significantly upgraded their websites We recognized that the methodology we used in our first effort was somewhat subjective in terms of maintaining consistency in deciding what was easy to find and what was not so easy Our hope is that with this rubric our own process will be more transparent more objective and more useful to those state agencies that continue to improve their websites to provide the public with important pipeline safety information Where a score depends on a description of something as easy to find that means it can be found within 4 mouse clicks of the general agency home page 1 Finding the agency website 3 possible points additive 2 points If you go to general state government web page and look for or search for pipeline safety or pipeline regulation will you get taken to the right page from a menu or will a link to the page be in the top five hits Since PHMSA sends people to general state government home page it s important to be able to find pipeline safety agencies once you re there 1 point If you Google state name pipeline safety or pipeline regulation will you get the right page as a top 5 choice And yes we realize there s only so much you can do to influence the Google responses 2 Description of what state regulates 3 possible points additive Does agency site clearly describe what types of pipelines the state does and does not regulate enforce and or inspect under certifications or agreements with PHMSA 2 points Does agency site refer reader to PHMSA by appropriate link for pipelines not regulated by state If interstate agents for both no link necessary 1 point 0 Points no description of what is and is not regulated and or inspected 3 Contact information for agency staff 3 points easy to find includes individual name s titles email addresses and phone numbers 2 points easy to find names titles email addresses or phone numbers 1 Point any shortcoming from 2 points either hard to find or missing some aspect of contact info from 2 points 0 points Anything less including blind email box for information request 4 Transmission Pipeline Maps 3 points easy to find can be either link to interactive state mapping system or link to NPMS public viewer 2 points not immediately apparent need to use search function or fish around more than 4 clicks to find maps either state system or link to NPMS 1 point some maps operator system maps fixed state map of systems etc 0 points It s not there 5 Pipeline Company contact information 3 Points list of operators including operator company name address contact information type s of pipelines operated and PHMSA operator ID number 2 Points Everything but PHMSA operator ID or link to NPMS operator finder page 1 Point not an option

  • NRDC Report | Pipeline Safety Trust
    Trust Initiatives Programs Publications NRDC Report The Pipeline Safety Trust joined with other national groups to release the following report The m ajor recommendations from the report include Evaluate the need for new U S pipeline safety regulations Older safety standards designed for conventional oil may not provide adequate protection for communities and ecosystems in the vicinity of a DilBit pipeline The Department of Transportation DOT should analyze and address the potential risks associated with the transport of DilBit at the high temperatures and pressures at which those pipelines operate and put new regulations in place as necessary to address these risks The oil pipeline industry should take special precautions for pipelines transporting DilBit Until appropriate regulations are in place oil pipeline companies should use the appropriate technology to protect against corrosion of their pipelines to ensure that the smallest leaks can be detected in the shortest time that is technologically possible and companies should ensure sufficient spill response assets are in place to contain a spill upon detection Improve spill response planning for DilBit pipelines Spill response planning for DilBit pipelines should be done through a public process in close consultation with local emergency response teams and communities New DilBit pipeline construction and development should not be considered until adequate safety regulations for DilBit pipelines are in place The next major proposed DilBit pipeline is TransCanada s Keystone XL pipeline This pipeline approval process should be put on hold until the U S Department of Transportation Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration PHMSA evaluates the risks of DilBit pipelines and ensures that adequate safety regulations for DilBit pipelines are in place Reduce U S demand for oil especially for tar sands oil The United States can dramatically cut oil consumption by reinforcing existing reduction programs such as efficiency standards
