Facility Safety Inspection Checklist rev. October 1998


In 1970, GPA Technical Section A undertook the task of developing a checklist on plant design. In 1978, the Board of Directors requested the Technical Committee to prepare a similar work on energy conservation. It was completed in 1981. These two publications cover their title subjects well but make only casual reference to safety. To fill this void, the GPA Safety Committee agreed during their October, 1982 meeting to develop a safety checklist. The initial task force was chaired by Richard Bausell, Cities Service Oil & Gas Corp., with Joel Tietjens, Mitchell Energy, and William E. Childers as members. Through the next four years, numerous Safety Committee members worked on parts of the check list. The last draft was completed in 1986. The final work, "Gas Processing Facility Safety Inspection Checklist" was published in early 1987. As part of the 1996 GPA Safety Committee "Vision 2000" effort led by Steve Godby and Mike Burgess, it was decided by the Committee that the GPA "Gas Processing Facility Safety Inspection Checklist" should be updated to reflect recent legislative considerations such as OSHA 1919.119, Process Safety Management. A team composed of Jeff Smith, Mobil, John Farrah, Marathon, Dan Kalisek, Marathon, Beth Hutton, Texaco, John Williams, Mitchell Gas Services, Walt Braunlin, Terry Pelham, Marathon, Wade Ingle, KN Energy and Darrel Lester, Torch Energy, was formed to accomplish this task. Liz Powell and Brenda McGuire, Marathon, and Joy Harkings, Mitchell Gas Services, provided the word processing services for the preparation of this checklist.
