Performance Pipe Responds to Inquiries on Non-Standard Packaging Materials

A recent presentation at the 2010 American Gas Association Operations Conference by Mr. Robert Fassett, Director – Integrity Management & Technical Support for Pacific Gas & Electric Company, has prompted questions regarding the use of off-specification pipe and start-up scrap for packaging and shipping purposes. Mr. Fassett’s presentation detailed a 2008 natural gas explosion in PG&E’s territory in Rancho Cordova, California, which resulted in personal injury, including a fatality, and property damage. Performance Pipe materials were not involved in this incident.
