This final rule establishes new safety standards governing the operations, maintenance (including corrosion control), fire protection, personnel qualifications and training, and security of liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities used in the transportation of gas by pipeline in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce. Present regulations are considered inadequate because they do not provide an acceptable level of safety.
