Oil, Gas, and Hazardous Liquid Pipelines Face Many New Safety Requirements
Authors: Joseph R. Herbster

On January 3, President Obama signed into law the Pipeline Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation Act of 2011 (a title strongly influenced by current political issues). This act, sponsored as H.R. 2845 by Representative Bill Shuster (R-Pa.), brings sweeping changes to the nation’s pipeline safety law, imposing a variety of new design, construction, testing, operation, maintenance, and emergency response requirements for the nation’s 2.3 million miles of pipelines for natural gas, petroleum, and hazardous liquids.
