No. 194–5] RIN 2137–AC30 Pipeline Safety: Response Plans for Onshore Transportation-Related Oil Pipelines Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule; correction. AGENCY: SUMMARY: On February 23, 2005, the U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Office of Pipeline Safety (OPS) issued a final rule adopting as a final rule, the interim final rule which was issued on January 5, 1993. This final rule also made minor amendments to some of the regulations in Part 194 in response to public comments and the experience that OPS gained in implementing the interim final rule, leading spill response exercises, and responding to actual spills. The amendments were generally technical in nature and did not involve additional costs to pipeline operators or the public. In issuing the final rule, a table was inadvertently misprinted. This table in § 194.105(b)(3) specifies the potential spill volume reduction credits operators may use when they have secondary containment and other spill prevention measures on breakout tanks. These spill reduction credits are used when calculating the worst case discharge volume. This correction replaces the incorrect table with the correct table. DATES: This Final Rule correction is effective March 25, 2005. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: L.E.

ACTION: Final rule; correction.

SUMMARY: On February 23, 2005, the U.S. Department of Transportation, 
Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, Office of 
Pipeline Safety (OPS) issued a final rule adopting as a final rule, the 
interim final rule which was issued on January 5, 1993. This final rule 
also made minor amendments to some of the regulations in Part 194 in 
response to public comments and the experience that OPS gained in 
implementing the interim final rule, leading spill response exercises, 
and responding to actual spills. The amendments were generally 
technical in nature and did not involve additional costs to pipeline 
operators or the public.
    In issuing the final rule, a table was inadvertently misprinted. 
This table in Sec.  194.105(b)(3) specifies the potential spill volume 
reduction credits operators may use when they have secondary 
containment and other spill prevention measures on breakout tanks. 
These spill reduction credits are used when calculating the worst case 
discharge volume.
    This correction replaces the incorrect table with the correct 
table.

DATES: This Final Rule correction is effective March 25, 2005.
