Small LP Gas Operator OQ Guide (August 2016)

These guidelines were prepared by a team of industry and Government pipeline safety and training experts to assist small LP operators and master meter operators to develop programs to ensure that individuals who operate and maintain these systems are qualified for the work they perform. LP operators are required to prepare and follow an Operator Qualification (OQ) program by Federal regulations at 49 CFR 192 Subpart N as well as regulations adopted by some States.
