SHRIMP is an online tool that operators of natural gas distribution systems use to create a complete, written DIMP plan customized for the specific needs of their system. The SIF, with support from PHMSA and state pipeline safety regulators, offers SHRIMP so utilities can have access to an affordable Distribution Integrity Management Program (DIMP) tool. SHRIMP is designed to create accurate written DIMP plans with ease. SHRIMP asks questions about a user’s infrastructure and creates a DIMP plan ready to sign and implement.
While created with small utilities in mind, it may be used by any utility. SHRIMP pricing is tiered based on system size and is affordable for any system.
