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.

NERC's State of Reliability 2017 report is now available.

The report reviews past performance of the bulk power system, examines the state of system design, planning and operations, and the ongoing efforts by NERC and industry to continually improve system reliability and resiliency.

This independent review of bulk power system is based on analysis of data and metrics, which enables NERC to examine trends, identify potential risks to reliability, establish priorities and develop effective mitigation strategies.
