Ohio Gas Pipeline Safety Regulations Revised

[Case No. 12-2040-GA-ORD]

The Public Utilities Commission of Ohio (PUCO) issued revised gas pipeline safety regulations in Chapter 4901:1-16 (Gas Pipeline Safety) to provide for state regulation and oversight of gas gathering and processing plant operators. The revised rules implement state Senate Bill 315, adopted in 2012, which requires that newly constructed gathering lines comply with federal design, damage prevention, public education, maximum allowable operating pressure, line marking, and leak survey requirements.
