Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Natural and Other Gas by Pipeline; Confirmation or Revision of Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure Near Certain Occupied Buildings and Outside Areas

52-fr-32924.pdf (434.96 KB)

This final rule amends the criteria used to classify pipelines located near certain buildings and outside areas that are occupied infrequently. The effect is to relieve the undue burdens imposed by the current rules when pipelines are near these buildings or areas. Considering the risk, an acceptable level of safety will still be provided by the revised criteria and applicable safety standards.
