Dear Mr. Pritchard:

This is in response to your letter dated July 3, 1972, regarding liquefied petroleum gas systems.

Your specific question was:

"Please advise whether or not a liquefied petroleum gas system that serves less than 100 customers from a common source and the pipeline does not cross a public place such as a highway fall under the regulations of the Department of Transportation minimum safety standards in the transportation of natural and other gas by pipeline."

A liquefied petroleum gas system that serves ten or more customers is subject to the Federal gas pipeline safety standards, regardless of whether or not it crosses a public place such as a highway.

Liquefied petroleum gas systems serving less than 100 customers are exempt from the annual report requirement of 49 CFR §191.11 but not from the safety standards.

We trust that this has answered your specific question. If we can be of further assistance, please let us know.
