PHMSA Sends Gathering Lines Final Rule to OMB

Yesterday OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received for review from DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Material Safety Administration (PHMSA) a final rule on “Pipeline Safety: Safety of Gas Gathering Pipelines”. This is apparently a direct final rule.

According to the Spring 2021 Unified Agenda listing for the rulemaking:

“This rulemaking would require all gas gathering pipeline operators to report incidents and annual pipeline data. PHMSA is also extending regulatory safety requirements to Type A gathering lines in Class 1 locations and is proposing to change certain definitions related to gas gathering operation.”
