Background

The Department of Commerce is seeking input by April 7 on the construction of pipelines using domestic steel and iron as opposed to imported materials. This information will help the DOC develop a plan for the domestic sourcing of materials for the construction, retrofitting, repair, and expansion of pipelines inside the U.S., as directed by a Jan. 24 presidential memorandum.

The DOC is therefore conducting industry outreach to better understand:

- current pipeline construction technology and requirements;

- potential advances in pipeline technology;

- the domestic and foreign supply chain for pipeline materials; and

- all other information respondents consider pertinent to the development of the domestic sourcing plan.

The DOC, in consultation with relevant agencies, must submit a plan to the president by July 23.
