PHMSA does not have data on the total extent of unregulated hazardous liquid low-stress pipelines in the United States. To address this gap in the data and to obtain a more accurate understanding of the unregulated hazardous liquid low-stress pipelines, PHMSA is requesting OMB approval to conduct a one-time information collection survey. Operators of hazardous liquid pipelines will be surveyed about mileage (including interplant pipeline mileage), diameter, pipeline material, products transported, and location. The survey will be delivered electronically to each of the companies currently operating regulated hazardous liquid pipelines. PHMSA will also attempt to reach companies that own and/or operate currently unregulated pipelines exclusively by working with industry associations to announce and distribute the survey via electronic newsletters to association members. Respondents will be able to print an electronic version of the survey and mail a hard copy or complete the survey online. Participation in the survey will be optional. There are 288 pipeline operators that own and/or operate regulated hazardous liquids pipelines. This population may also own and/or operate unregulated hazardous liquid low-stress pipeline. The number of pipeline operators that own and/or operate unregulated pipeline mileage exclusively is unknown. Industry experts indicate that the companies operating regulated pipelines are likely to operate most, if not all, of the unregulated low-stress hazardous liquid pipelines. Based on a pre-test of the survey, PHMSA estimates 158 operators will complete the onetime survey (55 percent response rate). Section 1320.8(d), Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations requires PHMSA to provide interested members of the public and the affected agencies an opportunity to comment on information collection requests. Information collection includes all work related to preparing and disseminating information related to this proposed information collection request, including completing paperwork, gathering information, and conducting telephone calls. PHMSA invites comments on any aspect of this proposed information collection. The comments may address: (1) Whether the proposed collection is necessary for PHMSA’s performance; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways for PHMSA to enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the sought information; and (4) ways to minimize burden without reducing the quality of VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:22 Jun 13, 2007 Jkt 211001 the collected information. PHMSA will summarize and/or include comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this proposed information collection. Respondents: 158. Frequency: This is a one time survey.
