H. Wayne Harper, PE
Enter the fascinating world of the natural gas industry and discover how the relatively unseen network of transmission pipelines are planned, routed, permitted, and constructed. Supplying approximately 25 percent of total energy consumed in the United States, natural gas is a vital component of the nation's energy supply. Interstate transmission pipelines are the backbone of the natural gas system which consists of over 304,000 miles of pipe throughout the United States. Written with the perspective of a landowner asking there’s “An Interstate Natural Gas Pipeline on My Land? What Do I Need To Know?”, this course provides a detailed overview of proposed natural gas pipeline project development, landowner rights, easement negotiations, and the associated permitting process. Primarily through a series of questions and answers, the course examines nine relevant topics. The depth of information and detail within the course is comprehensive and well suited for engineers, consultants, and planners seeking to initiate or broaden their understanding of transmission pipeline projects.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
