Incident and Mileage Data

PACIFIC GAS & ELECTRIC CO

(Operator ID:15007 - CURRENTLY ACTIVE OPID)

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

The reports below provide mileage data based on this operator's latest submissions to PHMSA, as well as their incident data for the most recent 5-year period.

The data sources for the mileages in this report are the Annual Report for Gas Distribution, Gas Transmission and Hazardous Liquid (1) mileages. All mileages are for in-service pipelines and reflect data submitted to PHMSA by this operator.

The data sources for the incidents in this report are the PHMSA Flagged Incident Files(2). Where appropriate, the table columns can be sorted by clicking the corresponding column header.

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.

Both onshore and offshore miles are included in these reports.
