Archived Rulemaking: Liquefied Natural Gas Facilities; New Federal Safety Standards

45-fr-9184.pdf (8.14 MB)

This final rule establishes a set of comprehensive safety standards governing the design (including site selection) and construction of liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities used in the transportation of natural gas by pipeline in or affecting interstate or foreign commerce. Because of the grave consequences that could result from a major accident at a facility, present regulations are considered inadequate.
