Abstract: The Texas Legislature has given the Railroad Cotmilssion of Texas express power to promulgate, adopt, and enforce minimLgn pipeline safety standards in Texas. The Railroad Conmission assigned jurisdiction over natural gas and hazardous liquids pipelines to its Pipeline Safety Section in the Gas Utilities Division. This is an awesocK responsibility for the section, considering Texas has approximately 1300 distribution systems, 3200 transmission and gathering systems, and 3000 hazardous liquids systems. This means the pipeline safety engineers and engineering technicians must, on an ongoing basis, inspect over 80,000 miles of distribution mains and service lines, 60,000 miles of traiismission and gathering lines, and 80,000 miles of liquids lines.
