Petroleum, including natural gas, has been used in one form or another since ancient times and is now important across society, including in the economy, politics, and technology.
The rise in importance was due to the invention of the internal combustion engine, the rise of commercial aviation, and the importance of petroleum to industrial organic chemistry, particularly the synthesis of plastics, fertilizers, solvents, adhesives, and pesticides. In the United States, pipelines used to transport oil and gas have been in use since the beginning of the industry. Most of the early transmission and distribution pipelines were made of cast iron or wood and transported products within the footprint of the company or short distances to refineries or railroad loading platforms,
Emergency Response focuses on what to do during an emergency, and how to incorporate Damage Preventions procedures relating to One-Call notifications and working with excavation contractors when pipelines are being crossed.
This 1-day workshop reviews Emergency Response. Individuals who benefit from this workshop include technicians, supervisors, regulators, service providers, engineers, and new entrants to the pipeline industry.
