Federal Inspection and Enforcement Data

ALYESKA PIPELINE SERVICE CO

(Operator ID:26149 - CURRENTLY ACTIVE OPID)

Main Operator Report Page - Incidents and Mileage - Federal Inspection and Enforcement Data - More Pipeline Operators

The reports below provide inspection and enforcement data for the most recent 5-year period. This information includes only completed (not planned or ongoing) inspections and the enforcement actions pursued at the Federal level by PHMSA on Federally-inspected mileage. The number, type, inspection days, and date of inspections conducted by PHMSA are included, as well as both a summary of and specific details pertaining to enforcement cases against this operator.

In some cases, State pipeline safety agencies also provide oversight and enforcement on certain intrastate pipeline facilities (State-inspected mileage). Inspections and enforcement by PHMSA's partner State agencies are not included in these reports; however, information on State-initiated enforcement action is available at State Pages.

Important Notice: In April 2014, these reports underwent a significant revision to improve consistency and utilize the improved Operator Annual Report data now available. These changes may result in some significant mileage changes for certain operators due to the new data sources and reporting requirements. Currently, these reports are available for hazardous liquid, gas transmission, and gas gathering operators, and do NOT, at this time, include system mileage or incidents for any operator exclusively concerned with gas distribution. We will continue to improve these reports and we welcome your feedback.

For more information on each inspection type see the Inspection Activity Glossary.

Site-Specific Field Inspections - Include inspections and other compliance-related activities conducted at specific facilities or along specific lengths of pipelines ("Inspection Units"). Types of inspections/activities include on-site field verification of an operator's implementation of procedures and programs associated with corrosion control, integrity management, training and qualification, public awareness and damage prevention, control center operations, emergency preparedness and response, and other pipeline safety and compliance tasks.

System-Wide Program Inspections - Include inspections and other compliance-related activities that cover pipeline safety programs and processes that apply broadly across an operator's entire network of pipeline facilities. Types of inspections/activities include those which cover operating and maintenance procedures, integrity management and operator qualification programs, and integrated inspection of all operator safety and compliance programs.

Targeted Inspections/Investigations - Include inspections, investigations, and other activities related to specific pipeline safety areas which have been targeted for special review or emphasis. Types of activities include failure investigations, investigations into public concerns or complaints, drug and alcohol program inspections, new construction inspections, and other special-focus inspections or investigations.

Cases Initiated: These are the yearly total of civil administrative enforcement actions that PHMSA has brought against pipeline owners and operators. It does not reflect those cases which the agency has referred to other Federal officials for criminal prosecution, nor does it include more egregious civil cases that are referred to the U.S. Department of Justice for judicial enforcement. The table shows the total number of Corrective Action Orders, Notices of Probable Violations, Notices of Amendment, Warning Letters, and Notices of Proposed Safety Orders issued in a given year.

Cases Resolved: These are the yearly total of PHMSA actions taken to resolve the various types of enforcement actions against operators. This includes the number of Corrective Action Orders, Final Orders, Notices of Amendment, and Consent Orders that have either been closed or issued in a given year. When an enforcement action is shown as "closed", PHMSA has verified that all of the corrective actions have been successfully completed and that any inadequate procedures that were identified successfully addressed. Enforcement actions shown as "issued" mean that corrective actions have been established that are acceptable to PHMSA, and that civil penalty assessments have been finalized.
