PHMSA awards $46 million in pipeline safety grants to states

The US Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration awarded more than $46 million in pipeline safety grants to 46 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico, and 14 states will receive hazardous liquids pipeline safety grants.

The grants provide as much as 80% of operating costs for state pipeline regulatory agencies that agree to inspect intrastate pipelines on PHMSA’s behalf, the US Department of Transportation agency said.

Participating states and territories account for more than 300 inspectors who are responsible for more than 90% of the country’s intrastate gas and hazardous liquid pipelines. More than 2.6 million miles of pipelines transport oil and gas to homes and businesses across the US, it noted.
