Archived Rulemaking: Fire Protection and Security of Waterfront Liquefied Natural Gas Facilities

52-fr-674.pdf (258.28 KB)

This amendment extends the scope of the existing standards governing fire protection and security of liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities to cover facilities at waterfront LNG plants other than facilities that involve marine cargo transfer operations and facilities located in navigable waters. The amendment is needed to comply with mandatory provisions of the Pipeline Safety Act of 1979 and to conform the existing standards with new responsibilities for regulating fire protection and security under a revised memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the United States Coast Guard (USCG). The amendment requires that the affected facilities at waterfront LNG plants meet the same standards for fire protection and security that now apply to similar facilities at more than 100 non-waterfront LNG plants in the United States.
