SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:16 Jul 01, 2015 Jkt 235001 Introduction An integral part of requirements to manage the integrity of pipeline systems (49 CFR part 192, subpart O; 49 CFR 195.452) is the continual examination of ways to reduce the threats to pipelines in order to minimize the likelihood of a release, and ways to reduce the consequences of potential releases. A primary tool to implement this process is generally referred to as a ‘‘risk analysis’’ or ‘‘risk assessment.’’ To support integrity management requirements, a risk analysis modeling approach must be able to adequately characterize all pipeline integrity threats and consequences concurrently, and the impact of measures to reduce risk must be evaluated. This workshop will focus on advancing risk modeling approaches by looking at risk modelling methodologies for pipeline and non-pipeline systems, and practical ways that operators can adopt and/or adapt them to the analyses of their systems. Background Subsequent to implementation of the integrity management rules, industry has adopted a variety of approaches to risk analysis. Many of these approaches are variations of the ‘‘risk index’’ models. While index models and other basic approaches to risk modeling have been implemented by industry for purposes such as risk-ranking pipeline segments to prioritize initial integrity management-required baseline assessments, the ability of many of these approaches to do more investigative oriented analyses in order to identify specific ways to reduce risk is limited. As summarized and discussed in past public forums and workshops on pipeline safety (e.g., 2014 Government/ Industry Pipeline R&D Forum), industry and PHMSA are in general agreement that risk models need to evolve in such a way as to be more investigative in nature. PHMSA believes that improving risk models is important for further reducing the risk of pipelines to the public health and safety. In particular, PHMSA is interested in specific ways to advance pipeline risk models, and in practical ways that operators can adopt and/or adapt risk models to the analyses of their systems. Call for Abstracts We invite abstracts which present ways to advance pipeline risk models, risk modeling methodologies used in other non-pipeline applications, and practical ways that operators can adopt PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38267 and/or adapt them to the analyses of their systems. Specific examples of applications are encouraged. PHMSA is interested in engineering and technical modeling considerations including, but not limited to: • Quantitative and semi-quantitative risk approaches. • Interacting integrity threats. • Applicability to evaluating preventive measures and mitigative measures. • Availability of data to support identified risk modeling approach. • Risk models. • Approaches to pipeline facility risk. • Investigative performance of the example potential approach. • Adaptation of model approaches from non-pipeline systems. • Cost.
