Central Committee On Transportatation
Mr. Moss. This is the highway chart. There are all of these separate committees. There are 100,000 tank trucks in the United States, 125,000 drivers. All of these committees from accident studies down to corrosion are dealing with the subject of highway transportation.
The CHAIRMAN. These committees that were in that chart are subcommittees of this Central Committee on Highway Transportation ?
Mr. Moss. Yes, sir.
The CHAIRMAN. Which, in turn, is part of the Central Committee on Transportation !
Mr. Moss. No; that was the first
The CHAIRMAN. The division of transportation. Of what larger committee is the central committee?
Mr. Moss. There is a general committee over all these central committees that tie all these central committees together. There are five of these central committees dealing with separate fields.
I have already shown railroads, I have already shown highways. I am doing this rather fast. I am now showing pipelines, 194,000 miles of pipelines in the country. These are the committees dealing with the pipeline problem.
The CHAIRMAN. This is all part of the division of transportation of the institute ?
Mr. Moss. The division of transportation of the American Petroleum Institute.
The CHAIRMAN. That is only one part of the Petroleum Institute? Mr. Moss. That is right. That is just transportation.
The CHAIRMAN. What are some of the other divisions of the institute?
Mr. Moss. The basic ones are production, having to do with the production of oil, the refining division having to do with the refining or purification of that oil, the marketing division having to do with the marketing of that oil, and transportation.
Now, I will take a little more time on these committees because these two here, pipeline accounting and engineers-accountants valuation are the committees which we are interested in. This one has to with construction practices. We have a bulletin on that. The next one developed the standard on welding which is used all over the United States. The next two are corrosion.
Pipelines corrode inside and outside. The next ones have to do with hydraulics, pipelines and fittings, electrical standards, automation, pressure piping, pipeline crossings under railroads and highways, pollution, where they break and pollute the rivers, general information, safety, radio and communications, personnel training, pipeline accounting, engineers-accountants valuation, lease tank practices, where they pick it up from the producers, dispatching, filtering to get the corrosion out that takes place inside of the pipelines, evaporation loss, handling special products, storage tanks and metering.
Mr. KEATING. You mean those are all subcommittees of this central committee?
Mr. Moss. These are all subcommittees.
Mr. Moss. No, sir; separate committees with separate personnel and separate chairmen.
Mr. KEATING. You have more committes than the Congress?
