Dear Mr. Sullivan:

As you requested, this is to confirm that the distillate and gasoline pipelines described in your letter of November 4, 1994, to Donald E. Moore, did not come under the regulations in 49 CFR Part 195 until August 11, 1994. Before that date, low-stress petroleum product pipelines were not subject to those regulations (59 FR 35465; July 12, 1994).
