The Transmission Integrity Management Program (TIMP) ensures the integrity of Washington Gas’ pipelines regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT). Per DOT 192 Subpart O, the company is required to have a TIMP. The TIMP specifies how we identify, prioritize, assess, evaluate, repair and validate the integrity of the company’s 181 miles of transmission piping that could, in the event of a leak or failure, affect one of the company’s defined 79 miles of High Consequence Areas (HCAs). In addition, the TIMP team is responsible for identifying, locating and maintaining the transmission pipeline Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure (MAOP) documentation, which is a new mandate established as a result of recent pipeline failures within the natural gas industry.
Washington Gas places the highest priority on safety and compliance and supports the goals of improving pipeline safety as well as raising the public's confidence about the safety of pipelines.
