Science Committee Members Introduce Next Generation Pipeline R&D Act

House Science, Space, and Technology Subcommittee on Energy Ranking Member Randy Weber (TX) recently joined full Committee Ranking Member Frank Lucas and others to introduce legislation focused on advancing innovation in pipeline infrastructure for current and future energy applications. The bill aims to coordinate several interagency pipeline research, development, and demonstration efforts, including those at the Department of Energy (DOE), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and Department of Transportation (DOT).
The Next Generation Pipelines Research and Development Act will establish a demonstration initiative for basic research conducted by the DOE and DOT on projects related to pipeline performance, safety, and integrity. It also codifies a joint R&D program between all three agencies and directs the Department of Energy to establish a National Pipeline Modernization Center, which will serve as a collaboration hub for industry to understand and assist the research efforts of these agencies.
“Pipelines are an essential component of America’s energy infrastructure. Without the three million miles of pipelines crisscrossing our country, we wouldn’t be able to connect Americans with our supply of clean natural gas,” Ranking Member Lucas said. “As we continue to innovate and expand newer energy sources like captured carbon and hydrogen, it’s critical that we have pipelines in place that can safely and efficiently transport these fuels as well.”
