U.S. Department of Transportation, Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, 1200 New Jersey Avenue SE, East Building, 2nd Floor, Washington, DC 20590–0001. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 6, 2019, PHMSA published a Notice of Draft Environmental Assessment for a Special Permit Request for Liquefied Natural Gas by Rail (PHMSA–2019– 0100–0002) in the Federal Register. PHMSA solicited comment on the draft environmental assessment (EA) for a special permit request from Energy Transport Solutions, LLC. The notice requested comment on potential safety, environmental, and any additional impacts that should be considered as part of the special permit evaluation. See Docket No. PHMSA–2019–0100 for further information on the draft special permit. The comment period closed on August 7, 2019. PHMSA received approximately 2,985 comments to the docket for the notice. In consideration of the request for special permit and the 2,985 comments received to the notice, PHMSA completed a technical evaluation and a revised EA. For more information on the comments received please see the revised EA, Section 6 PHMSA’s Response to Public Comments, included in both this docket and the docket for the draft EA and special permit. PHMSA invites public comments relevant to the rulemaking on these materials to be submitted to the rulemaking docket (Docket No. PHMSA–2018–0025). The special permit—as issued— includes certain operational controls that were not included in the draft special permit, draft EA, and the ‘‘Hazardous Materials: Liquefied Natural Gas by Rail’’ (HM–264) notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). Specifically, paragraph 7.c of the special permit states the following: 7.c. OPERATIONAL CONTROLS: (1) Each tank car must be operated in accordance with § 173.319 except as specified in paragraph 7.a. above.1 (2) Shipments are authorized between Wyalusing, PA and Gibbstown, NJ, with no intermediate stops. (3) Within 90 days after issuance, the grantee shall prepare and submit a plan 1 Paragraph 7.a. authorizes DOT–113C120W tank cars for bulk transport of LNG and specifies that each tank car must have a maximum permitted filling density (percent by weight) of 32.5%; a maximum operating pressure of 15 psig when offered for transportation; and remote sensing for detecting and reporting internal pressure, location, and leakage. VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:23 Dec 10, 2019 Jkt 250001 providing per shipment quantities, timelines, and other actions to be taken for moving from single car shipments to multi-car shipments, and subsequently to unit trains (20 or more tank cars). (4) Trains transporting 20 or more tank cars authorized under this special permit must be equipped and operated with a two-way end of train device as defined in 49 CFR 232.5 or distributed power as defined in 49 CFR 229.5. (5) Prior to the initial shipment of a tank car under this special permit, the grantee must provide training to emergency response agencies that could be affected between the authorized origin and destination. The training shall conform to NFPA–472,2 including known hazards in emergencies involving the release of LNG, and emergency response methods to address an incident involving a train transporting LNG. (6) While in transportation, the grantee must remotely monitor each tank car for pressure, location, and leaks. These operational controls were added as a result of PHMSA’s consideration of the comments received to the draft EA, PHMSA invites comments on these operational controls to be submitted to the rulemaking docket (Docket No. PHMSA–2018– 0025). We encourage commenters to provide data on the safety or economic impacts associated with operational controls in the special permit, including analysis of the safety benefits and the potential cost-benefit impact of implementing these or other operational controls.
