Regulations and natural gas design

S. Miller, Milhouse Engineering and Construction

The natural gas industry is in a state of flux, with evolving industry regulations facilitated by lessons learned from previous catastrophes. The Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 192 is critical to maintain the minimum safety standards for the transportation of natural gas and other gas by pipeline. Natural gas design engineers play a key role in setting the stage for safe construction. Factors such as population density, utility conflicts, and accuracy of information play a critical role in determining a safe and reliable design for natural gas pipelines. While current technology has generally improved the accuracy shown on designs, discrepancies in the accuracy and reliability of exi
