$2 Billion for Pipeline Safety
PG&E’s 2013 Gas Safety Plan addresses every aspect of its gas operations, and details what the company is doing to maintain a safety-first culture, including the policies and procedures that guide day-to-day operations, risk management, employee and contractor training, commitment to compliance, asset management and maintenance, emergency response procedures and plans, and use of records.
Additionally, the plan highlights the work PG&E is doing to enhance its gas system safety. This includes having strength-tested or validated prior strength testing for 657 miles of transmission pipeline since the plan launched in 2011. The company has also automated 134 pipeline valves and validated the safe operating pressure for all 6,750 miles of its gas transmission pipelines.
