2022 AGA Operations Conference & Spring Committee Meetings

Simulation and optimization software

Visit us to learn about the DNV's Pipeline suite of software, enabling a proactive approach for better real-time decisions with predictive and advanced analytics

The Operations Conference is the natural gas industry’s premier gathering of utilities, distribution, and transmission operators.  Leaders and technical experts from across North America and the world attend the event. Developed by gas operators for gas operators – this event is the industry’s largest annual forum with regularly more than 700 operations management in attendance. 

The event offers technical sessions with topics, including but not limited to, gas measurement, pipeline integrity, operations advocacy, system safety, environment, storage, engineering, renewable natural gas, construction and maintenance, gas control, supplemental gas, corrosion control, and plastic materials. Attendees share technical knowledge, leadership strategies, and learning events promoting the safe, reliable, and cost-effective delivery of natural gas to the end-user.

Hear from DNV Pipeline Experts!

DNV has been invited to present several event sessions during this year’s conference agenda. Additional technical and presales experts will also be attending the conference as delegates.  We would welcome the opportunity to see you at any of the presentations outlined below.


Wednesday, May 4 | 11:40 AM-12:20 PM

"Implementing an Electronic Management of Change Program for Efficiency, Consistency & Traceability"

By: Elaine Pettersen, Principal Lead Consultant, Pipeline Integrity, DNV

“Safe and effective pipeline operation requires awareness and management of many linked activities.” - API RP 1173. This presentation will discuss how to incorporate Management of Change into your safety culture. This includes the importance of creating a structured, repeatable, and auditable process to track and manage technical, procedural, equipment, regulatory, and system changes.

Wednesday, May 4 | 4:20 PM-5:00 PM

"Supporting Transmission Asset Capital Planning Using Probabilistic Risk Integrity Management"

By: Jenni DeGreeff, PE, Director of Engineering, New Mexico Gas Company, and Tony Alfano, PE, Product Line Director, DNV

Risk-informed decision making is critical for ensuring the safety and reliability of our pipeline systems. This presentation will outline how NMGCo has transitioned to a probabilistic risk model for transmission assets to increase the useability of risk results in the capital planning process and as part of an overarching Safety Management System.

Thursday May 5 | 2:30 PM-3:10 PM

"Managing the Complexities of Pressure Regulator Station Risk Modeling"

By: Guanlan Liu, Ph.D., Senior Engineer DNV

Co-presenting: Peter Rusche, Engineering Supervisor, Distribution Integrity Management Program DTE Energy, and Rashad Soboh, Transmission Integrity Engineer, DTE Energy

Co-author: Tony Alfano, Product Line Director, DNV

Pressure regulation stations are complex to risk assess as they can result in both localized and remote impacts across a gas network. This presentation will discuss how DTE has modeled these assets and supplemented the available data with collective knowledge acquired across the company.
