[Docket ID PHMSA–2012–0021]
Department of Transportation / Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety
Administration (PHMSA) is providing an important opportunity for all
stakeholders to publically comment on the scope of recently commissioned
studies involving leak detection systems and valves.
The recent passage of the Pipeline Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation Act of 2011 has called for several commissioned studies and reports to Congress that PHMSA must address and complete. PHMSA has commissioned two studies to gather facts and perform technical, operational, and economical analyses about the constraints and implications for expanding the uses of leak detection systems and automatic and remote controlled valves.
Submit comments on these commissioned studies by close of business April 30, 2012 and reference Docket No. PHMSA–2012–0021. Comments may be submitted via the E–Gov Web Site.
