    also produced crude market analyses examining the economics of crude oil supply and demand in relevant markets to evaluate the need for various pipelines At a national level TGG evaluated the US employment impacts of the Keystone XL pipeline in Pipe Dreams Jobs Gained Jobs Lost by the Construction of Keystone XL an influential widely publicized study co authored with Cornell University TGG evaluated the adequacy of the US State Department s Market Analysis for Keystone XL At a state provincial regional level TGG has produced 4 reports on the economic and environmental impacts of pipelines TGG s expert reports on crude oil pipelines include Changes to the Economic Costs and Benefits of the Keystone XL Pipeline for South Dakota written expert testimony filed in April and June 2015 at the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission on behalf of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Based on the conclusions of pipeline safety expert Richard Kuprewicz that a the proposed routing in South Dakota places the proposed pipeline at undue risk of rupture with massive release of oil and b the worst case spill scenario of 60 000 barrels assuming a 15 minute valve shutoff time TGG estimates a range of Worst Case Scenario Costs starting at US 1 billion and escalating to 2 billion or more for a very high consequence event Given the Keystone XL s very small employment and property tax benefits TGG concludes that under a range of worst case scenarios the costs of the Project will greatly exceed the benefits for South Dakota Economic Costs and Benefits of the Trans Mountain Expansion Project TMX for BC and Metro Vancouver in collaboration with Simon Fraser University Centre for Public Policy Research The report first released in November 2014 shows that the economic development benefits of TMX are very small and have been significantly overstated by Kinder Morgan whereas the worst case costs of a catastrophic spill are very large and have been vastly understated Economics of Transporting and Processing Tar Sands Crudes in Quebec in collaboration with Aquiterre and Greenpeace Canada The January 2014 report demonstrates that the economic development benefits of moving and refining tar sands crudes would be insignificant for Quebec while the costs and risks are very high The Relative Economic Costs and Benefits of Enbridge s Line 9B Reversal and Line 9 Capacity Expansion Project expert report filed in August 2013 at Canada s National Energy Board on behalf of a coalition of environmental groups Report evaluating the adequacy of the Keystone XL KXL Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement DSEIS Market Analysis filed as an attachment to Comments on KXL DSEIS submitted by Sierra Club NRDC and 14 other groups in April 2013 Pipe Dreams Jobs Gained Jobs Lost by the Construction of Keystone XL co authored with Cornell University September 2011 See www thegoodman com publications for links to the complete list of TGG s reports TGG has never been retained by the energy pipeline industry and does not anticipate being retained by this industry in the future TGG has no potential conflicts in working for an entity that is not aligned with the energy pipeline industry s interests As indicated above in response to other questions in our 26 year history TGG has worked for a very diverse range of clients including citizen groups and governments at all levels as well as regulators environmental and public interest organizations consumer groups and indigenous groups We have been retained by energy industry clients in the past but these are typically renewable energy companies or utilities and distribution companies seeking analysis of employment impacts related to investment in energy efficiency or renewables Since 2011 when TGG s practice began to focus mainly on the economics of oil supply and transportation TGG has worked exclusively for environmental indigenous and public interest groups and collaborated with academic institutions We have not been retained by energy industry clients since 2008 More details Hide details Thomas Gunton Job Title Company Name Company Web Address State of Empl Director and Professor

    voice to make itself heard We wanted to start changing that We hoped to form a new group of leaders in pipeline safety advocacy and collectively develop a strategy to improve representation of the public in pipeline safety issues With the help of a recent grant from PHMSA we hoped to establish a growing number of citizens and local government representatives with the knowledge and commitment to take a more active role in participating in various pipeline safety efforts Many people become involved in pipeline safety issues because of pipeline incidents or pipelines planned for their communities Individuals have learned a little or a lot about the particular operator or regulator or aspect of pipeline safety or planning that affected or threatened to affect their family or their community or their favorite place Sometimes when individuals get that far the crisis of the moment passes the relevant decision is made the pipeline goes back in the ground or goes somewhere else and the concerned individuals move back to other more pressing aspects of their own lives But the pipeline safety risks remain the same decision making processes remain public officials who can t hope to know enough about pipelines to make informed decisions remain and pipeline safety goes off the radar until another tragedy occurs in another community One of our goals is to bring people together let them share their various experiences and knowledge and jointly develop a strategy for increasing and sustaining the level of communication partnership and involvement of the public with pipeline operators and regulators We also hope that this group will find ways to continue to share information expertise and opportunities for involvement to make pipelines even safer Here s how we approached this The level of commitment required is fairly minimal but we looked for individuals who will be active participants We sent an initial survey to gauge participants current level of knowledge about various aspects of pipeline safety and to find out what their interests are Then every couple of weeks from February to April 2012 we sent some information to read on a different specific pipeline safety topic In between we discussed the issues on the listserv setup to facilitate gommunication for the group At the end of the project after we have sent out all the information pieces we ll do another short survey to see if we have been successful in raising people s understanding of the various issues In early June 45 of us gathered near San Bruno for a couple of days to meet share experiences discuss the various types of public arenas where more public involvement is needed and develop a strategy for improving and sustaining public representation in those arenas The agenda for that meeting can be found here The Group We originally identified 58 people from 21 states and D C There are people who have been directly affected by the recent spills from the Enbridge and Chevron pipelines and some who lost family members
