Archived Rulemaking: Gas Detection-and Monitoring In Compressor Station Buildings

55-fr-30724.pdf (660.74 KB)

This notice proposes to require that gas compressor buildings with 50 percent or more of wall area enclosed be equipped with gas detection and alarm systems. The history of reported incidents at compressor stations indicates a potential for leaking gas to accumulate undetected inside certain compressor buildings. Gas detection and alarm systems are needed to warn personnel of the presence of any hazardous accumulation of gas in these buildings.
