Archived Rulemaking: Transportation of Natural and Other Gas by Pipeline; Confirmation or Revision of Maximum Allowable Operating Pressure for Gas Pipelines

50-fr-36116.pdf (660.71 KB)

This advance notice invites comments on whether it is necessary for safety to confirm or revise the maximum allowable operating pressure of gas pipelines in the vicinity of isolated
buildings or outdoor places of assembly where 20 or more people gather in normal use. The current requirements may be too conservative and costly compared to the benefits attained.
Comments received may result in a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to adopt the most practical and beneficial alternatives to the current rule.
