Arkansas Gas Pipeline Regulations Update

[Docket No. 22-020-R]

Arkansas updated its gas pipeline regulations to harmonize them to the federal gas pipeline regulations. Arkansas, in general, republished the federal requirements into the state regulations. However, there are exceptions. In some of these exceptions, Arkansas did not adopt the federal rules as written in 49 CFR 191 and 192 and instead either paraphrased or summarized the federal requirements or did not adopt certain federal requirements. Examples of where the federal and state regulations differ include but are not limited to not including Type C gathering lines in the updated regulation, developing new failure pressures for general metal loss, and incorporating metal loss as an identified risk in the IMP.

RCP’s SME has created a “Changes Summary Table” for these Arkansas Gas Reg updates. For a copy of the summary table, contact Jessica Foley.
