The special permit renewal request seeks to waive compliance from certain Federal regulations found in 49 CFR § 192.111, 192.201, 192.505, and 192.619. The special permit conditions that were imposed would continue to remain in effect, with the exception that the special permit renewal includes a request from Kern River to modify Condition 35(b) of the special permit to allow close interval and depth of cover surveys to be conducted in the same year as inline inspection (ILI) tool assessments. Also, Kern River has requested to modify Condition 35(h) of the existing special permit to allow using ILI tool calibrations from previously excavated pipeline features with documented dimensions, externally re-coated, and cathodic protection maintained. The pipeline features would be used to confirm the accuracy of each ILI tool run. The number of required ILI tool calibrations would be defined based upon the run length of the ILI tool assessment. The special permit renewal request is for the Kern River Pipeline System, which begins at the discharges of the Muddy Creek and Painter compressor stations, and at the Anschutz meter station in Lincoln County, Wyoming, routed through Utah and Nevada, to the outlet side of the Daggett meter station located in San Bernardino County, California where it interconnects with the Mojave Pipeline. The Kern River Pipeline System consists of 682 miles of a 36-inch diameter mainline, 635 miles of 36-inch diameter loop lines, 10 compressor stations, 48 meter stations, six (6) receipt laterals, and seven (7) delivery laterals. Kern River has been allowed to operate at a MAOP of 1,333 pounds per square inch gauge (psig) on the mainline pipeline (up to 1,350 psig in compressor and meter station piping) since November 6, 2008, under the Alternative MAOP special permit. The Kern River Pipeline System under the special permit is in the following counties and states: • Lincoln and Uintah Counties, Wyoming; • Salt Lake, Utah, Millard, Beaver, Washington Counties, Utah; • Clark County, Nevada; and • San Bernardino County, California. To reauthorize Kern River to continue its operation as defined in the original special permit issued on March 19, 2010, and renewed on March 19, 2015, for nonodorization of a pipeline lateral. The special permit renewal request seeks to waive compliance from certain Federal regulations found in 49 CFR 192.625(b) for the continued non-odorized operation of Kern River’s Centennial Lateral, a 12-inch diameter natural gas transmission pipeline. The Centennial Lateral main line tap valve is located on a corner lot near the intersection of Centennial Parkway and North 5th Street in Clark County, Nevada. The special permit renewal request is for a 1,083-foot segment of Kern River’s Centennial Lateral, a 12-inch diameter natural gas transmission pipeline. The special permit conditions that were imposed would continue to remain in effect. The Centennial Lateral operates at a MAOP of 1,333 psig.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PHMSA received a special permit request from Gulf South Pipeline Company, LP (GSPC), a subsidiary of Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP, to deviate from 49 CFR 192.625(b) to apply alternative risk control measures to the length of the Index 129–72 Pipeline in lieu of odorization. The Federal pipeline safety regulations in 49 CFR 192.625(b) requires a gas transmission pipeline to be odorized when 50 percent of the downstream mileage is in a Class 3 or a Class 4 location. The proposed special permit would allow the Index 129–72 Pipeline to operate without odorization. The GSPC Index 129–72 Pipeline is a 30-inch-diameter natural gas transmission pipeline, 1.31 miles in length, and is located in Fort Bend County, Texas. The maximum allowable operating pressure for the Index 129–72 Pipeline is 1,100 pounds per square inch gauge. GSPC would like to be able to flow gas bi-directionally between the Katy Storage Facility and the mainline Index 129 Pipeline. The direction of gas flow at any given time will be determined based on whether GSPC’s customers are transporting gas into or out of the Katy Storage Facility. The request, proposed special permit with conditions, and Draft Environmental Assessment (DEA) for the GSPC Index 129–72 Pipeline are available for review and public comments in the Docket No. PHMSA– 2019–0174. We invite interested persons to review and submit comments on the special permit request and DEA in the docket. Please include any comments on potential safety and environmental impacts that may result, if the special permit is granted. Before issuing a decision on the special permit request, PHMSA will evaluate all comments received on or before the comment closing date. Comments received after the closing date will be evaluated, if it is possible to do so without incurring additional expense or delay. PHMSA will consider each relevant comment we receive in making our decision to grant or deny this request. E:\FR\FM\13DEN1.SGM 13DEN1

renewals and the proposed modifications to the special permit 
conditions are available for review and public comment in the 
respective dockets. We invite interested persons to review and submit
