Project Spare

The SPARE (Surplus Pipeline Asset Revitalization Endeavor) project aims to provide a risk-based management program designed to identify and mitigate the liability associated with approximately 272 miles of abandoned pipelines. Langan supported the development of a legacy pipeline asset retirement program for California, which sets a baseline for future endeavors, and endorsed a risk-based, environmentally robust management program to reduce the potential for pipeline incidents. Our team also helped develop criteria, prioritize pipeline sections based on vulnerability and risk, identify and engage stakeholders, and develop a management plan.
