Sandia’s NISAC facility.

Sandia was mentioned in a letter by Representative Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) for outstanding work with Texas Southern University (TSU). Through the National Infrastructure Simulation and Analysis Center (NISAC) program, Sandia has partnered with TSU’s National Transportation Center of Excellence, to complete analyses of the petrochemical supply chain and related analyses of the impact of infrastructures.

Representative Lee writes: “As a long-time resident of Houston, Texas, known by many as the Energy Capital of the World, the important work at TSU, including the Petrochemical Supply Chain and Incident Analysis project (with Sandia National Laboratories and the Texas Transportation Institute) and the Petrochemical Incident Location System (PILS), is why the Center is especially of interest to me, my constituency and the Houston community at large.”
