PHMSA Sends Liquified Natural Gas Facility NPRM to OMB

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received from the DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) for review. The NPRM concerns “Pipeline Safety: Amendments to Liquefied Natural Gas Facilities”.

According to the Fall 2019 Unified Agenda entry for this rulemaking:

“PHMSA is proposing to update incorporated industry standards and revise all subparts of part 193 as needed. These updates to part 193 will address the risks associated with today's liquefied natural gas facilities, including permanent, small scale liquefied natural gas pipeline facilities as required by section 27 of the PIPES Act of 2016.”
