award_tipton

We've had a great year at Integrity Plus and none of it is possible without our incredible team. We wanted to recognize some of our strongest performers, so we decided to have our employees vote on who they felt was the Most Valuable Employee. Requirements for receiving votes included positive attitude, hard working, problem solving, and improvement from previous years. Being that we have multiple offices and so many individuals deserving recognition, we decided on an award for Houston MVP, Fort Collins MVP, and a Rising Star award.

Melissa Lawrence to Present at New Mexico Regional CGA Conference

Integrity Plus’s Melissa Lawrence will be speaking at New Mexico Regional Common Ground Alliance (NMRCGA) Conference in Albuquerque, NM September 19-21, 2017. Melissa will be leading two presentations on Wednesday, September 20th in the Manzano room including, Risk Analysis Results and Ranking at 9am, and Pipeline Release Consequences: Beyond HCAs at 10:30am.

The Risk Analysis Results and Ranking presentation discusses the importance of risk analysis in pipeline integrity management and performance-based management systems. It will cover ideas and guidance for conducting risk assessment and evaluating results to prioritize follow-up activities. As result of upcoming regulations, the industry must expand on how release consequences are identified. In her Pipeline Release Consequences: Beyond HCAs presentation, Melissa will provide an introduction on identifying consequence areas and expanding current practices to incorporate additional release impacts.
