Organization: API
Publication Date: 1 December 2010
Status: active
Page Count: 72
scope:

The scope of this RP covers the development, implementation, evaluation, and documentation of public awareness programs associated with the normal operation of existing pipeline systems and facilities, including the following:

- transmission pipelines,

- local distribution systems,

- gathering lines.

Communications related to new pipeline construction, offshore operations, and during emergencies are not covered by this RP, nor is it intended to provide guidance to operators for communications about operator-specific performance measures that are addressed through other means of communication or regulatory reporting.

Furthermore, this RP recognizes that there are differences in pipeline conditions, release consequences, populations, increased development and excavation activities, and other factors associated with individual pipeline systems. Some areas with pipelines have a low population, low turnover in residents, and little development or excavation activity; whereas other areas have very high population, high turnover, and extensive development and excavation activity.

Finally, this RP provides the operator with the elements of a recommended baseline public awareness program and considerations to determine when and how to enhance the program to provide the appropriate level of public awareness outreach. Enhancements may affect messages, delivery frequency and methods, geographic coverage areas, program evaluation, and other elements.
