WASHINGTON, DC, Feb. 1 -- The board of the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America formed an executive-level pipeline tax force and named Christopher A. Helms, executive vice-president and group chief executive of NiSource Gas Transmission & Storage, as its chairman.

“For the past several years, the focus of the nation’s interstate natural gas pipelines has been on a safety culture for both our companies and our suppliers, and we believe we can provide leadership and work with regulators and other stakeholders toward the common goal of safe transportation of natural gas,” Helms said Jan. 27 following the INGAA board’s meeting.

The task force, which will consist of INGAA board members, will oversee development of the next pipeline safety standard level because gas is a critical US fuel, Helms said.
