PEC Safety was chosen by Kinder Morgan and Colonial Pipeline, two of the largest energy infrastructure and pipeline companies in the United States, to develop the training module MSTQ Core. This module, taken in conjunction with SafeLandUSA™, enables contractors and sub-contractors to satisfy the necessary MSTQ Core Training Requirements.


What is MSTQ?

MSTQ is a new set of training requirements for participating members of the midstream industry comprised of core training, non-core training and hands-on training requirements. The MSTQ Module, along with SafeLandUsa, currently satisfies the awareness level core training requirements. The additional non-core training and hands-on training will be added in phases over time.
