Pipeline safety should be on ‘everyone’s radar’

May 19. As most everyone in North Meck knows by now, gas pipelines can leak. The Pipeline Safety Trust, a national non-profit that promotes pipeline safety, is holding its spring conference virtually today and Thursday. PST was formed after the 1999 Olympic Pipeline tragedy in Bellingham, Wash.

Nationally known oil and gas analyst Tom Kloza, a co-founder of Oil Price Information Service, said pipeline safety should be on everyone’s radar. Colonial Pipeline now holds the record for the largest gas spill in both North Carolina and South Carolina.

Marcus speaking Thursday

NC Sen. Natasha Marcus will be speaking about the Colonial pipeline leak in Huntersville during the Thursday session which is focused on the local spill which was discovered in August last year. More than 1.2 million gallons of gasoline seeped into the ground.


Session Two runs from noon to 2 pm Thursday. A panel discussion includes Marcus as well as Andrew Black, CEO of the Association of Oil Pipelines, and Linda Daugherty, deputy associate administrator of the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration.
