FERC approves New York/New Jersey Pipeline

July 2012, Vol. 67, No. 7

The PHMSA appears to be expanding the study beyond hazardous liquid lines to include gas transmission and distribution lines. "Paiute is unclear whether this is an oversight or if PHMSA truly intends to include gas distribution and transmission pipelines in the study," says Maples. "Gas distribution and transmission pipelines are very different from liquid pipelines and should not be evaluated under the same study/criteria."
