Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Natural and Other Gas by Pipeline; Separately Protected Service Lines

45-fr-23441.pdf (222.17 KB)

A final rule was published (Amdt 192-35; 44 FR 75384 December 20,1979) establishing requirements for testing, on a sampling basis, cathodic protection on short sections of transmission lines. That final rule unintentionally altered the requirement for testing cathodic protection on separately protected service lines. This amendment reinstates the original requirement, which allowed separately protected service lines, regardless of their length, to be tested on a sampling basis if annual tests are impractical.
