TRRC Chapter 8 Pipeline Safety Adopts Farm Tap Regulations

The Railroad Commission of Texas (TRRC) adopted amendments to §8.1, relating to General Applicability and Standards, to update federal provisions and citations, and to §8.215, relating to Odorization of Gas, to clarify an exemption for certain farm tap odorizers. The TRRC revised its regulations to clarify that wick-type farm tap odorizers are exempt from certain equipment reporting requirements, but must continue to comply with gas odorization requirements. The TRRC adopts the amendments without changes to the proposed text as published in the July 4, 2014, issue of the Texas Register (39 TexReg 5024).

The adopted regulations became effective on October 6. For a copy of the adopted regulations published in the Texas Register, please contact Jessica Foley.
