PUC Invites Comments On Order Implementing New Gas Pipeline Regulatory Program

The Public Utility Commission published notice of its tentative implementation order for the new Gas and Hazardous Liquids Pipelines Act for comment.  Comments are due February 1.
            The new law expands the Commission’s authority to enforce federal pipeline safety laws as they relate to gas and hazardous liquids pipeline equipment and facilities within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
            The Pipeline Act requires the Commission to develop and maintain a registry of pipeline operators within Pennsylvania.
            The Commission will recover the costs of this program by assessments on pipeline operators based on the total intrastate regulated transmission, regulated distribution and regulated onshore gathering pipeline miles in operation for the transportation of gas and hazardous liquids in Pennsylvania during the prior calendar year.
            For more information, visit the PUC's Gas and Hazardous Liquids Pipelines Act webpage.
