Illinois Gas Regulations Update

On May 21, 2019, the Illinois Commerce Commission revised their regulations in Title 590 – Minimum Safety Standards for Transportation of Gas and for Gas Pipeline Facilities. These revisions updated Section 590.10(a) to exclude Section 49 CFR 192.12 from the Federal Standards Incorporated by Reference. In addition, the revisions state Operators are not required to submit reports required by 49 CFR 191 that pertain only to the downhole portion of an “underground natural gas storage facility,” as defined in 49 CFR 192.3 as of July 1, 2018, to the Commission. Section 590.20 was also updated to reflect this exemption.
