SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PHMSA’s IM regulations require operators of hazardous liquid and gas transmission pipelines to assess, evaluate, repair, and validate through comprehensive analyses the integrity of pipeline segments in high consequence areas where a leak or failure would do the most damage to populated, unusually sensitive environmental areas, and other populated areas. These regulations also require operators who cannot meet their evaluation schedules to notify PHMSA when temporarily reducing operating pressure or shutting down their pipelines. This change adds a requirement for operators to also notify PHMSA if pressure reductions exceed 365 days. PHMSA published a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) on December 15, 2005 (70 FR 74265) requesting comments on a change to these existing information collections. PHMSA received comments from 12 parties: American Petroleum Institute and Association of Oil Pipe Lines; the American Gas Association; Texas Pipeline Association; Kinder Morgan Energy Partners, L.P.; Southwest Gas Corporation; Paiute Pipeline Company; Orange and Rockland Utilities, Inc.; Duke Energy Gas Transmission Corporation; Magellan Midstream Partners, L.P.; Panhandle Energy; Puget Sound Energy; and Enbridge Energy Company, Inc.—Liquids Transportation Segment. Pursuant to 44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA, PHMSA will include the comments in the request for OMB’s clearance of this information collection. PHMSA is now forwarding the collection of information request to OMB and providing an additional 30 days for comments. PHMSA is inviting comments on whether the proposed information collection is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of DOT. The term ‘‘information collection’’ includes all work related to preparing and disseminating information in accordance with recordkeeping requirements. The comments should address (1) whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to minimize the information collection burden on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

The purpose of this notice is to invite the public to submit comments on the request to OMB. DATES: Submit comments on or before August 16, 2007. ADDRESSES: Send comments directly to the Office of Management and Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attn: Desk Office for the Department of Transportation, 725 17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503. The hazardous liquid pipeline safety regulations require operators that elect to use software-based Computer Monitoring System (CPM) leak detection systems to comply with the American Petroleum Institute’s (API) 1130 standard (49 CFR 195.134). API 1130 provides guidance for operating, maintaining, and testing software-based CPM systems. Hazardous liquid operators, with software-based CPM systems, must maintain records documenting the operation, maintenance, and testing of those systems. PHMSA, through the incorporation of this industry standard, will be able to continue to ensure that appropriate technology is used to PO 00000 Frm 00094 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\17JYN1.SGM 17JYN1
