Research & Development: Meetings/Events

R&D Menu

R&D Workshops, Forums, & Briefings

In establishing R&D policy and in developing a national pipeline research agenda, PHMSA systemmatically seeks out information and informed opinion using a spectrum of public events such as workshops, forums and public meetings. These public events bring together representatives from federal, state, and foreign governments along with domestic and foreign operators of natural gas and hazardous liquid pipeline systems and the trade organizations that represent them. At these events information and opinions are shared to help clarify key challenges facing industry and government, to share information on current research efforts, and to identify new research that has the potential to meet present and future challenges.
