What else do we need for a sufficient public assessment?

• We really need consistent reporting standards for pipeline events that would trigger a GADS report -> level the regulatory playing field

• If we base this on 2% of the median gas plant’s net maximum capacity:

• A pipeline failure event that causes an:

• Unanticipated reduction in operational capacity of the pipeline by 25,000 standard cubic feet per hour (scf/h) should be reported by pipelines with firm contracts to fuel plants of nameplate 20 MW or more

• “ “ 900 scf/h should be reported by pipelines with firm contracts to fuel plants of nameplate 20 MW or less

• Representatives from gas and electric generation industries should be consulted

• These data should be collected by a central reliability agency, like NERC, and made available for third-party reliability assessments.
