  • This primer was written to explain how interstate natural gas pipelines are constructed, from the planning stages to completion. The primer is designed to help the reader understand what is done during each step of construction, how it is done, the types of equipment used, and the types of special practices employed in commonly found construction situations.

  • This report presents a study showing that the time to obtain required federal authorizations from agencies other than the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC or Commission) for interstate natural gas pipeline projects has actually increased since the passage of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005), a law with the stated intent to streamline and expedite federal authorizations for such projects.

  • This paper demonstrates that the age of a natural gas transmission pipeline, in and of itself, is not the most important factor affecting the safety of that pipeline. This paper’s review of incidents reported to the Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) from 2002 through 2009 found that 85% of incidents occurred irrespective of a pipeline’s age, with just 15% related in some way to the age of the pipeline.

  • The natural gas industry and the people it serves would benefit if companies were to implement a more robust process to capture knowledge. Most companies – both inside and outside of the interstate natural gas pipeline industry – fail to “own” the “institutional” knowledge that is critical to company success such as data files, business histories, and business processes. Knowledge management is an important tool to support the safe and reliable operation of the North American natural gas pipeline industry, and companies must make a greater effort to retain employee knowledge.

  • Numerous studies have looked at the economic benefits of developing American oil and natural gas. This study, completed by Black & Veatch for The INGAA Foundation Inc., is the first to highlight the economic benefits – jobs, labor income, value added, economic output and federal, state and local tax generation – of constructing, operating and maintaining the midstream infrastructure needed to transport domestic energy.

  • The increased use of renewable electric power generation, particularly wind, will require electric power systems to provide back-up power to firm the generation from these intermittent sources of electricity. Natural gas-fired generation is a logical, low-cost choice for providing this back-up firming capability. This study evaluates the implications of the increased use of natural gas-fired generation for firming renewable resources for natural gas transportation infrastructure planning and pricing.

  • This INGAA Foundation report forecasts the most critical skills for the natural gas pipeline industry workforce. By identifying positions that are expected to be in short supply and critical functions in the design, construction, operation and maintenance of pipelines, this study locates the highest risk "intersections" of workforce and tasks -- and gives the industry a place to focus efforts to enhance skill development methods and materials for these vital areas.

  • These guidelines were developed using a consensus process by a work group formed by Foundation members. The guidelines draw upon the experience and leading practices of the full breadth of INGAA Foundation members as well as practices used throughout the industry, including the Common Ground Alliance (CGA) Best Practices and API 1166 - Recommended Practice on Excavation Monitoring and Observation. The measures proposed in this document tie to those used as a standard practice in FERC proceedings and industry recommended practices. They constitute minimum measures and nothing prevents the parties from agreeing to additional or more stringent measures.

  • The INGAA Foundation, Inc. retained BBI International (BBI) to analyze the natural gas implications for future alternative fuels plants. This analysis looked at current and future biofuels plants and quantities and estimated thermal energy loads. Increased crop production to supply biofuels plants and the resulting increases in fertilizer requirements was reviewed. This study also evaluated alternative thermal energy sources for biofuels plants and energy efficiency gains that may reduce natural gas demand at biofuels plants. It also addressed the natural gas infrastructure necessary to meet future biofuels production requirements.
