The request is for GSPC’s Index 818–9 Pipeline which is currently in carbon dioxide (CO2) service under 49 CFR part 195 regulations. GSPC proposes to convert the line to natural gas service. Pipeline operators converting pipelines to natural gas service must follow 49 CFR 192.14: Conversion to service subject to this part. GSPC is seeking a waiver from the requirements of 49 CFR 192.14(a)(4), which requires a pressure test to substantiate the maximum allowable operating pressure of the pipeline VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:46 Jun 01, 2020 Jkt 250001 (MAOP) in accordance with 49 CFR part 192, subpart J. In lieu of a pressure test, GSPC seeks a special permit to perform alternative risk control activities, based on 49 CFR part 192, subpart O, integrity management program principles, requirements, and assessments, as specified in the proposed special permit conditions. The 16-inch diameter Index 818–9 Pipeline has a maximum operating pressure of 2,875 pounds per square inch gauge (psig) while in CO2 service as a 49 CFR part 195 regulated pipeline. GSPC proposes to lower the Index 818–9 Pipeline MAOP to 1,480 psig for operation as a 49 CFR part 192 regulated natural gas transmission pipeline. The 16-inch diameter Index 818–9 Pipeline is 61-miles in length and begins at a point southeast of Heidelberg, Mississippi, and runs northeast to the Kemper County Power Plant in Kemper County, Mississippi.

PHMSA will consider each relevant comment it receives in making a decision to grant or deny this special permit request. Issued in Washington, DC, under authority delegated in 49 CFR 1.97. Alan K.
