Job Purpose
Gas Transmission Engineering (GTE) provides the expertise and engineering to oversee National Grid's Gas Transmission System via the principles of Asset Management.

We are responsible for approximately 1000 miles of high-pressure natural gas pipelines operating in New York State, including approximately 500 miles of Department of Transport (DOT) transmission pipelines. GTE must evaluate and balance cost, risk, and performance over the lifecycle of our assets.

Asset Management requires continual re-balancing and optimization of cost, risk, and performance. Factors influencing our optimization activities include: risk appetite, business constraints, regulatory requirements, and strategic priorities.

The transportation of natural gas via pipeline remains a highly regulated industry. We are governed by the Federal Department of Transportation (DOT), The Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA), as well as the New York State Public Service Commission (PSC).
