This workshop will provide a basic introduction to integrity management programs (IMPs) for pipelines. Federal regulations for gas and liquid pipelines will be summarized, and the implications of recent regulatory modifications and proposed rules addressed. Several case studies will be used to help attendees understand strengths and weaknesses of typical IMPs. The workshop will cover the impact of recent incidents and future trends.
