Louisiana Department of Natural Resources Proposed Amendments

Office of Conservation – Pipeline Division Title 43

The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources Office of Conservation is proposing to amend LAC 43: XIII. The proposed changes will reorganize the affected sections, combine the carbon dioxide rules in Title 43 with those in Title 33, and amend the regulations in Title 43. Additionally, the damage prevention rules, and pipeline operations rules, are proposed to be amended. This Notice of Intent has not been published in the Louisiana Federal Register; however, it is expected in February. While there are minor reorganization and smaller changes being suggested, the more technical proposed changes include adding regulations for transporting carbon dioxide in a gaseous or non-supercritical state, reporting carbon dioxide incidents, and additional updates to carbon dioxide pipeline regulations.
