Recently concerns have been expressed by many parties that additional interstate pipeline capacity is needed in certain areas of the country.

Each person owning or operating a gas pipeline facility or hazardous liquid pipeline facility shall carry out a current written plan (including any changes) for inspection and maintenance of each facility used in the transportation and owned or operated by the person.

A copy of the plan shall be kept at any office of the person the Secretary of Transportation considers appropriate. The Energy Regulatory Commission recently published general administrative provisions which establish new open access rules for natural gas pipeline transportation and storage services.

The new provisions set open access obligations to which permit holders undertaking these activities will be subject, as well as service modalities and the conditions under which midstream facilities can be.

The current regulation of transportation pipelines by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has designated that interstate pipelines can serve only as transporters of natural gas. In the past, interstate pipelines acted as both a transporter of natural gas, as well as a seller of the commodity, both of which were rolled up into a bundled product and sold for one price.

The US natural gas pipeline network is a highly integrated transportation and distribution grid that can transport natural gas to and from nearly any location in the lower 48 states. Shippers can choose from a number of alternate routes to move gas from production areas to. The IURC regulates electric, natural gas, steam, water, and wastewater utilities, and to a lesser extent, telecommunications and video providers.

The Commission also oversees natural gas pipeline companies in the state of Indiana and ensures operators of gas distribution systems follow state and federal guidelines established to promote the safe, reliable transportation of natural gas to customers. Chapter 8 Pipeline transportation of natural gas* Physical and physico-chemical properties of natural gas I n the following we shall be concerned only with those physical and physicochemical properties that affect the transmission of gas in pipelines; even those properties will be discussed only in so far as they enter into the relevant hydraulic theories.

The DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) recently announced proposed regulations to update critical safety requirements for natural gas transmission pipelines. The proposed rule would broaden the scope of safety coverage both by adding new assessment and repair.

Pipelines that operate within a province/territory generally fall under the provincial/territorial regulator’s authority – examples include the Alberta Energy Regulator, British Columbia Oil and Gas Commission and the Ontario Energy Board.

Other organizations also keep safety standards for pipeline operators high, including Natural Resources Canada, Environment and Climate Change Canada. In addition, the terms and conditions of interstate gas transportation services must be memorialised in the natural gas pipeline’s tariff, which must be publicly available on the pipeline.

Code of Colorado Regulations 4 (gg) "Transportation" means the exchange, fronthaul, backhaul, flow reversal, or displacement of gas between a utility and a transportation customer through a pipeline system. (hh) "Transportation customer" means a person who, by signing a gas transportation agreement, elects.

Following a series of explosions and accidents the federal government announced Thursday it would expand safety rules for natural gas pipelines. Regulators cited a.

Existing gathering line regulation reflects collaboration between pipeline operators and regulators, a model useful for new regulatory efforts as well.

Background. America’s natural gas pipeline network transports natural gas to and from most locations across the. and chemical characteristics to natural gas produced from traditional underground well, and that is sources intended to act as a substitute for natural gas. Renewable Gas includes but is not limited to, biogas, biomethane, landfill gas, and any other type of natural gas equivalent produced or manufactured from sources other than.

PHMSA is co-sponsoring a two-day Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Workshop with the National Association of Pipeline Safety Representatives. PHMSA will also describe requirements for transporting LNG in commerce by rail, highway, and waterway, as authorized in the Federal Hazardous Materials Regulations in 49 CFR parts Underground natural gas storage facilities must meet the following requirements: (a) Each underground natural gas storage facility that uses a solution-mined salt cavern reservoir for gas storage constructed after J must meet all requirements and recommendations of API RP (incorporated by reference, see §).

The federal government regulates oil and natural gas pipeline safety under a variety of laws and regulations.[8] Beginning with the Natural Gas Pipeline Safety Act of ,[9] in which Congress authorized the DOT to develop minimum safety standards for the transportation of natural gas, there.

But transportation law also pertains to rail, water vessels, bicycles, airplanes, helicopters, and any other form of getting from one place to another. Similarly, the laws affecting transportation pertain not only to these modes of transit, but also to the infrastructure that.
