The purpose of this amendment to 49 CFR 192.707(d) (1) and (e) (2) (1), which is In response to a petition from the Exxon Pipeline Company (Docket No. 75-11W), is to permit certain wording on gas pipeline markers as an alternative to the wording presently required. Section 192.707(d) (1) requires that gas pipeline markers located other than at navigable waterways display the words "Gas Pipeline." Likewise, § 192.707(e) (2) (I) requires that the words "Gas Pipe- line Crossing" be displayed on markers at navigable waterways. The Materials Transportation Bureau (MTB) believes that permitting those markers to display the name of the gas being transported in a pipeline, in lieu of the word "gas." conveys the Information intended to be provided. MTB therefore agrees with Exxon that § 192.707 should be amended to permit such Identification.
