The new seminar will address how GIS can assist in conforming to the Hazardous Liquids and Gas Transmission pipeline rules.

The Geospatial Information & Technology Association (GITA) is offering a new seminar on federal regulations, to be presented at the GIS for Oil & Gas Conference, slated for September 29 to October 1, 2004, in Houston, Texas.

The new seminar, New Federal Regulations-Are You in Compliance?, will address how geographic information systems (GIS) can assist in conforming to the Hazardous Liquids (CFR 195) and Gas Transmission (CFR 192) pipeline final and proposed rules. Real-life case studies from both pipeline operators and vendors will be highlighted as they detail their audit experiences.

"Geospatial information can be invaluable in helping organizations deal with the regulatory compliance issues currently facing the oil and gas industries," said GITA Executive Director Bob Samborski. "This is an especially appropriate topic for this conference."

The only event of its kind, the GIS for Oil & Gas Conference is devoted exclusively to GIS applications and technologies for both the upstream and downstream aspects of the oil and gas industry. The two-and-a-half day conference, which drew over 600 oil and gas professionals last year, will include three half-day seminars, a series of paper presentations in two tracks, panel discussions, user forums, and a product and services exhibition. Full details about the conference are available at the GITA Web site, located at, or by contacting GITA headquarters at 303-337-0513; e-mail
