Capitol Crude: The US Oil Policy Podcast

Slow US pipeline safety reforms get caught in presidential transition

March 20, 2017 (21:46 mins)



Brian Scheid and Meghan Gordon

How safe are US pipelines seven years after the fatal natural gas pipeline explosion in San Bruno, California, and the 20,000-barrel heavy crude spill in Marshall, Michigan? Regulations designed in response to the accidents moved so slowly in the Obama administration that they never reached adoption.

Now the regulations stand to get caught up in the Trump administration's regulatory purge. Keith Coyle, an attorney at Babst Calland, talks with senior oil editor Meghan Gordon about what changes the industry still wants to make in those rules and what chance they have of being adopted.
