INGAA: Y2K is A-OK

The Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) said member companies plan to complete their Year 2000 (Y2K) computer analysis, modification and testing by October and will have contingencies in place should the new millennium bring problems. In testimony last week before a special Senate committee on Year 2000 technology problems, Sonat Executive Vice President Jim Rubright, representing INGAA, said a recent membership survey shows pipelines have plans in place now and are implementing them. He said INGAA is recommending a gas industry conference in September to discuss preparedness. "We will encourage all segments of the industry to participate, including service providers such as electricity and telecommunications. Sharing information and raising the visibility of the Year 2000 problem is the best way to ensure that every interested party is taking the steps needed while there is still time."
