Dear Mr. Prielipp:

This responds to your letter dated May 26, 1976, in which you ask if the Federal pipeline safety standards apply to the petroleum gas system that you operate in the North Fork Trailer Park, Kernville, California.

The Materials Transportation Bureau administers Federal safety regulations applicable to pipelines used in commerce to transport gas. The regulations which are set forth in 49 CFR Part 192 (copy enclosed) apply to petroleum gas systems. Section 192.11(a) states:

"No operator may transport petroleum gas in a system that serves 10 or more customers, or in a system, any portion of which is located in a public place (such as a highway), unless that system meets the requirements of this part and of NFPA Standards No. 58 and No. 59. In the event of a conflict, the requirements of this part prevail."

You also refer to the form DOT F7100.1-1. As provided by 49 CFR 191.11(b), this form need not be submitted by operators of petroleum gas systems which serve less than 100 customers from a single source.

Should you desire additional information regarding any facet of the gas pipeline safety program, you may contact our local office: Mr. Jack Overly, Chief, Western Region, Materials
Transportation Bureau, Office of Pipeline Safety Operations, 831 Mitten Road, Burlingame, California 94010, Telephone: 415-876-9085.
