Kristen Torgerson of Burns and McDonnell says incorporating safety standards is imperative for any pipeline facility and starts as early as the crucial stage of design at the beginning of the project. The design team, with input from the facility owners/operators, must examine all aspects to determine potentially hazardous situations or other mistakes that could occur during facility operation and product transportation. By thoroughly thinking through potential worst-case scenarios, pipeline facility designers and owners/operators can promote an environment that has safety at the forefront and mitigates the concerns of nearby residents or businesses. There are some common best practices that designers and owners/operators can implement to minimize hazards at pipeline facilities.

United Energy’s Major Acquisition Update

United Energy Corporation has signed a purchase agreement for a 140-mile natural gas pipeline in Wagoner County, Oklahoma, formerly owned by Red Fork Energy. This asset has 140+ miles of 3” to 16” transmission lines, including a 12” steel pipeline – capacity up to 20,000 MCFGD and comprises 5,000+ acres leasehold, and 89 company-owned wells with substantial Woodford Shale development opportunities. Closing is expected in October pending final due diligence. “Natural Gas midstream assets are true gems in the current environment.
