OGA Pipeline 2016 - 15


about prioritizing and scheduling capital
projects. We're also thinking hard about
how we can best engage our many external stakeholders - including our customers, community leaders, elected officials
and regulators - about the work we're
doing, and help them understand the
importance of this work to ensure safe
and reliable service well into the future.
The industry continues to develop with
regard to pipeline safety regulation. And
with the significant amount of natural gas
infrastructure across our country, it is critical that we have regulations in place that
appropriately advance safety.
Ryan: The continued increase in regulations, the complexity of the rules and the
increasing documentation requirements,
especially around pipeline safety, and likely
soon to come, gas storage guidelines. I
don't think anyone in this industry sees
that changing in the near or long term, but
only becoming more so. We are also going
to be challenged by our workforce needs as
we see many of our experienced workers
retiring in the next five to ten years and our
need to attract a younger workforce.

Jeff Murphy, Vice president and
General Manager of Dominion
East Ohio
"Some of the biggest challenges we face
involve increasing workforce turnover and
the ever-changing compliance landscape."

Dan Creekmur, President of
Columbia Gas of Ohio
"Innovation will be a constant challenge
and it is one that we need to try and
keep pace with as we look at the ways
we communicate with our customers."

Jim Henning, President of Duke
Energy Ohio & Kentucky
"With the significant amount of natural
gas infrastructure across our country, it is
critical that we have regulations in place
that appropriately advance safety."

Colleen Ryan,
President of Vectren, Ohio
"We see opportunities for customers
to convert from electric to natural gas
along with combined heat and power
(CHP) opportunities."
