PHMSA–2010–0063 .... asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Docket Nos. Cook Inlet Energy LLC (CIE) formerly issued to Anchor Point Energy § 192.121 .................... To reauthorize an increase in the maximum allowable operating pressure (MAOP) on the TETLP pipeline operation as defined in the original Special Permit issued on October 28, 2010. This special permit renewal will allow TETLP to increase the MAOP of the special permit segments to the alternative MAOP design factors specified in 49 CFR § 192.620, of up to 80 percent of the specified minimum yield strength (SMYS) in Class 1, 67 percent of SMYS in Class 2 location, and 56 percent of SMYS in Class 3 location, provided that certain alternative measures are implemented and numerous conditions and safety requirements are met as described in the Special Permit renewal conditions. The renewal request seeks to waive compliance from §§ 192.112(a)(1); 192.112(c); 192.112(d)(2)(i); 192.112(f)(1), and 192.620(d)(5)(iii) of the Federal Pipeline Safety Regulations. The original special permit did not include a waiver from the requirements of § 192.620(d)(11)(ii)(A). Since the special permit included dent response and repair criteria that differ from the criteria in § 192.620(d)(11)(ii)(A), TETLP requests that this section be noted in the special permit renewal. The Special Permit renewal pertains to the 36-inch, approximately 268 miles of Lines 1 and 2 TETLP pipelines starting from the Bedford Compressor Station in Pennsylvania to the Chambersburg, Compressor Station in Pennsylvania. There are no class 4 locations in the system and the current segments operate at an MAOP of 1,112 psig. The pipeline segments are located in Fayette, Somerset, Bedford, Fulton, Franklin, Adams, York and Lancaster Counties in Pennsylvania. To reauthorize the continued operation of 4.5-inch diameter, 8-mile reinforced thermoset plastic material FS LPJ (Fiberspar) pipeline built in the Kenai, Peninsula Borough near Anchor Point, Alaska. The renewal request seeks to waive compliance from § 192.121. The Anchor Point pipeline transports natural gas from the North Fork Unit and delivers it to a Sales Pipeline operated by Enstar Natural Gas Company. The MAOP of this pipeline is 1,328 psig. This special permit would only apply to Class 1 locations and areas outside of high consequence areas. Before acting on the special permit renewal requests, PHMSA will evaluate all comments received on or before the comments closing date in its decision to VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:18 Jun 15, 2015 Jkt 235001 grant or deny the renewal requests.
