Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Hazardous Liquids by Pipeline; Regulation of intrastate Pipelines

50-fr-15895.pdf (1.28 MB)

The existing Federal safety standards for pipelines transporting hazardous liquids apply to pipelines operating in interstate or foreign commerce. This final rule extends the applicability of these standards to include pipelines transporting hazardous liquids that affect interstate or foreign commerce, sometimes called intrastate pipelines. The Hazardous Liquid Pipeline Safety Act of 1979 (HLPSA)
requires this action to provide for consistent State regulation of risks associated with intrastate transportation of hazardous liquids.
