Gas Pipelines in Liquid Integrity Management Plans

The American Petroleum Institute (API) and the Association of Oil Pipeline (AOPL) have submitted two petitions to DOT/OPS to amend Title 49 CFR Part 195.452. While most API member companies are primarily engaged in the transportation of hazardous liquids, some of the members do operate small amounts of gas pipelines that are subject to the Part 192 Subpart O Pipeline Integrity Management Rule. Acceptance of the petition would allow operators to incorporate their gas pipelines into their hazardous liquid pipeline integrity management program under Part 195.452.
