PHMSA Issues Stay of Enforcement for Operators Affected by Hurricane Ian
PHMSA issued this Stay of Enforcement to liquefied natural gas facilities, as well as natural gas and hazardous liquid pipeline operators that could potentially be affected by Hurricane Ian. The document alerts operators that the agency will temporarily halt its enforcement of compliance with operator qualification requirements but does not relieve operators of their safety responsibility to use trained, non-impaired workers to perform operation and maintenance tasks.
PHMSA will be working with operators to discuss and potentially delay or reschedule planned inspections of pipeline systems and facilities impacted by the storm.
See the Stay of Enforcement for more details.
