Download as PDF pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 58622 Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 184 / Friday, September 21, 2012 / Notices C7. Response: PHMSA removed ‘‘paid/reimbursed by the Operator’’ from the form in response to questions from operators about whether they should report total property damage or just the dollar amount paid for by the operator. PHMSA expects operators to report total property damage, regardless of whether the operator paid for the damage. In cases where the operator has not paid for the damage, the dollar amount must be estimated. PHMSA will remove ‘‘paid/reimbursed by the Operator’’ from the form. C8: PHMSA proposed revisions in Part C of the report to collect more information for incidents involving girth welds. API and AOPL suggest that PHMSA restructure the form so that all the data will be collected in a data field within Part C, rather than in the narrative where it is unavailable for public examination and proper analysis. C8. Response: The revision proposed by the commenters would require extensive modifications to the form and to the methods of data analysis. PHMSA will consider this suggestion during the next review of the form which is scheduled to take place in 2013. C9: API and AOPL commented that PHMSA should ensure that all proposed changes are reflected in the instructions. C9. Response: PHMSA has revised the instructions to reflect the proposed revisions. C10: Part A of the hazardous liquid accident report allows for the reporting of ‘‘Key Report Information.’’ PHMSA did not propose any changes to this Part. API and AOPL suggested that Part A, Question 10 be revised from ‘‘Estimated volume of intentional and/or controlled release/blowdown’’ to ‘‘Estimated volume of intentional and/or controlled release/blowdown (HVL/CO2 releases only).’’ API and AOPL specified that adoption of the proposed modification would be consistent with the original objective of the question — to differentiate information on HVL/ CO2 releases where product is vented or flared under the operator’s control to facilitate repair following a release, as opposed to what was released unintentionally during the release event. API and AOPL further suggested that this revision be detailed in the instructions as well. C10. Response: PHMSA agrees with the comment from API and AOPL and has revised the form and instructions as suggested. D. General Comments D1: AGA commented that PHMSA should involve industry more in the deliberation process for implementing changes to the forms. VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:05 Sep 20, 2012 Jkt 226001 D1. Response: In compliance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act, PHMSA involves industry by seeking comments and suggestions on proposed recordkeeping and reporting activities and will continue to do so.
