4 Automatic Shut Off and Remote Control Valve Assessment Performed a review of the use of Automatic Shut-off Valves (ASV) and Remote Control Valves (RCV) including industry nest practice, alternatives and merits of available technologies. In addition to reviewing pertinent industry literature and regulations, conducted a survey of natural gas transmission and distribution companies regarding their experiences with ASVs and RCVs. Reviewed client s historical, current, and proposed deployment of ASV and RCV equipment. Identified individual valve segments within the transmission system and prioritized based on factors including but not limited to population density, potential impact radius and blowdown time. CONSP-11 ASV/RCV Valve Estimating Developed unit cost approach to create project estimates for installation, replacement, or automation of existing valves in support of system upgrade initiative. Selected optimal valve locations based on defined program scope. Identified scope of work required to isolate each line segment and developed estimates for approximately eighty valve automation projects. Provided work scope and cost estimate documentation as basis for engineering design work as well as inclusion in Public Utility Commission rate case filing. CONSP-12 Cathodic Protection Record Stabilization Managed cathodic protection record stabilization team centralizing over 30,000 test points into single SAP database from paper records. Managed a team building Pipeline Feature Lists for MAOP Validation program. This team focused on customer and regulator meter sets, crossovers, blowdowns, and other non-mainline pipe segments. CONSP-13

5 Corrosion Control Monitoring Program Transmission Line Assessment Classified Performed preliminary review of construction data and operating information including leak history for water transmission mains. Work included field testing and data gathering in order to design a cathodic protection system for the steel portions of each line. Tests conducted included current requirement testing, soil resistivity testing, and continuity testing along the pipeline right of way. Specific ground bed locations utilizing the existing easements were identified. ENE s preliminary design report included test results, data analysis, written description of proposed cathodic protection system, bill of materials, and cost estimate for construction phase.
