OGA PIPELINE * 2016

DEPARTMENTS

08	 PRESIDENT'S CORNER

FEATURES
14	 EXECUTIVE ROUNDTABLE
We surveyed leaders of Ohio's largest natural gas utilities to gauge their opinions
and insights on the major opportunities and challenges facing the industry.
16	 GENERATION TO GENERATION: OHIO FAMILY-OWNED
GAS UTILITIES SURVIVE AND THRIVE
We take a look at three firms, whose origins date back to the late 1800s,
and are now under a fourth generation of family leadership, showing
just how important these family-owned companies are to Ohio.
20	 OGA MEMBERS WORK TO REFILL THE JOBS PIPELINE
IN RESPONSE TO PENDING RETIREMENTS
A large number of Ohio natural gas utility employees will be eligible to retire
within the next five years. See how OGA member companies are working to
refill the pipeline of skilled employees today to succeed tomorrow's retirees.
24	 USING NEW APPROACHES TO PROCLAIM THE CALL BEFORE
DIGGING SAFETY MESSAGE
We take a look at the different ways Ohio is reminding utilities of calling O.U.P.S.
before digging, especially now that a new law is in place with consequences for
not making the call to 8-1-1.
28	 VACUUM EXCAVATION DELIVERS SAFER, MORE PRECISE DIGGING,
EXPEDITING RESTORATION, REDUCING COSTS
Vacuum excavation is more precise, less expensive, less intrusive, and can be
safer than conventional digging. Learn more about the process and why you may
want to change your digging style.
31	 PRACTICING THE ART OF SAFETY: PROTECTING EMPLOYEES
HELPS PROTECT COMPANIES
Safety culture in the utility industry has shifted enormously in the last five
to 10 years, with companies truly making safety the first priority - and also
demanding the same safety commitment from their contractors and vendors.
32	 PIPELINE SPOTLIGHT: PUCO CHAIR ASIM Z. HAQUE
In this Q & A, Asim Z. Haque talks about serving as PUCO Chairman and where
he believes the Commission - and the industry - is headed.
