Download as PDF khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 110 / Thursday, June 10, 2021 / Notices maintenance (O&M) plans required under 49 CFR 192.605, 193.2017, and 195.402, to address the elimination of hazardous leaks and minimize releases of natural gas from pipeline facilities. The plans must also address the replacement or remediation of pipelines that are known to leak due to their material (including cast iron, unprotected steel, wrought iron, and historic plastics with known issues), design, or past O&M history. The plans must in be in writing, tailored to the operator’s pipeline facilities, supported by technical analysis where necessary, and sufficiently detailed to clearly describe the manner in which each requirement is met. For additional guidance on O&M plans for hazardous liquid and natural gas pipeline facilities, see ‘‘Operations & Maintenance Enforcement Guidance,’’ part 192 subparts L and M, page 17, available at https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/sites/ phmsa.dot.gov/files/docs/regulatorycompliance/pipeline/enforcement/5776/ o-m-enforcement-guidance-part-192-721-2017.pdf; and ‘‘Operations & Maintenance Enforcement Guidance,’’ part 195 subpart F, page 18, available at https://www.phmsa.dot.gov/sites/ phmsa.dot.gov/files/docs/regulatorycompliance/pipeline/enforcement/5781/ o-m-enforcement-guidance-part-195-721-2017.pdf. Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 60108(a)(3), as amended by section 114(a) of the PIPES Act of 2020, PHMSA and state authorities with a certification under 49 U.S.C. 60105 will inspect operators’ revised O&M plans in calendar year 2022, and such inspections must be completed by December 27, 2022. During these inspections, PHMSA, or the relevant state authority, is required to evaluate whether the plans adequately address items listed in section 114 of the PIPES Act of 2020. Operators need to consider the following items as they update their plans to comply with section 114 of the PIPES Act of 2020: • O&M plans must be detailed to address the elimination of hazardous leaks and minimization of releases of natural gas from the operators’ pipeline facilities; meaning pipeline operators must update their plans to minimize, among other things, fugitive emissions and vented emissions from pipeline facilities. PHMSA and state inspections, therefore, will evaluate the steps taken to prevent and mitigate both unintentional, fugitive emissions as well as intentional, vented emissions. Fugitive emissions include any unintentional leaks from equipment such as pipelines, flanges, valves, meter sets, or other equipment. Vented VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:15 Jun 09, 2021 Jkt 253001 emissions include any release of natural gas to the atmosphere due to equipment design or operations and maintenance procedures. Common sources of vented emissions include pneumatic device bleeds, blowdowns, incomplete combustion, or overpressure protection venting (e.g., relief valves). • O&M plans must address the replacement or remediation of pipelines that are known to leak based on the material (including cast iron, unprotected steel, wrought iron, and historic plastics with known issues), design, or past operating and maintenance history of the pipeline. PHMSA and state inspections will include an evaluation of how the material present in the pipeline system, design of the system, as well as the past O&M history of the system, contribute to the leaks that occur on the system. PHMSA and states will evaluate whether the plans adequately address reducing leaks on operators’ pipeline systems due to the aforementioned factors. • Operators must carry out a current, written O&M plan to address public safety and the protection of the environment. In addition to the new statutory requirement that PHMSA and state inspections consider the extent to which the plans will contribute to the elimination of hazardous leaks and minimizing releases of natural gas from pipeline facilities, PHMSA’s inspections will continue to include an evaluation of the extent to which the plans contribute to both public safety and the protection of the environment. Developing and implementing comprehensive written O&M plans is an effective way to eliminate hazardous leaks and minimize the release of natural gas from pipeline systems. PHMSA anticipates these self-executing statutory mandates will result in enhanced public safety and reductions in pipeline emissions thereby reducing impact on the environment.
