CLEAN AIR ACT AND PCB CLEANUP HOLD ATTENTION OF PROCESSORS, PIPELINES

U.S. gas processing and pipeline operating companies are watching the congressional course of the Clean Air Act (CAA) reauthorization bill to learn what environmental hurdles await them in the near future. At the same time, the biggest recent environmental story affecting natural-gas transmission companies--PCB contamination at compressor sites--continues into another chapter. This article reviews the changes for gas processors and natural gas and liquids pipelines that will occur with the expected reauthorization during the current congressional session of the Clean Air Act, then discusses the history and current situation of the contamination by polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) on several U.S. pipeline systems.
