DOT Part 195 Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Safety Regulations for Gas Operators - Virtual Workshop



DOT 195

As our industry continues to experience a revelation from the shale hydraulic fracturing, more and more companies are finding creative ways to utilize existing pipeline infrastructure. One such way is to convert assets from gas-only transportation to liquid transportation. Whether installing new facilities to transport liquids or converting existing facilities, professionals who have expertise in the regulations for gas pipelines (49 CFR Parts 190, 191, and 192) are now being asked to understand and work under regulations for hazardous liquids (49 CFR Part 195).

Learning Objectives:

This workshop provides an opportunity to attendees to get a broad understanding of Part 195, but also focus in on the main differences and pitfalls to avoid when working on regulatory issues surrounding hazardous liquid pipelines.

Attendees will receive 10.75 Professional Development Hours


Who Should Attend 

Pipeline industry personnel as well as agency personnel who wish to gain a better understanding of the regulations that pertain to the safe operation of pipelines that transport hazardous liquids.
