PHMSA Sends CO2 Pipeline NPRM to OMB

Yesterday the OMB’s Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (OIRA) announced that it had received a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) from DOT’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Administration (PHMSA) on “Pipeline Safety: Safety of Carbon Dioxide and Hazardous Liquid Pipelines”.

According to the Fall 2023 Unified Agenda entry for this rulemaking:

“This Proposed rulemaking would amend PHMSA's Pipeline Safety Regulations (49 CFR parts 190-199) to adopt revisions that would enhance the safe transportation of carbon dioxide by pipelines to accommodate an anticipated increase in the number of carbon dioxide pipelines and volume of carbon dioxide transported. Also, this proposed rulemaking would include requirements related to emergency preparedness and response for carbon dioxide.”
