Pipeline VOC Emission Limits Soon To Be Finalized; EPA Makes Changes To Pipeline GHG Reporting Rule

February 2012, Vol. 67 No. 2

The American Gas Association is also unhappy that PHMSA did not include one particular change to its regulations in the overall proposed rule it issued on Nov. 29, 2011. The AGA has been pressing the PHMSA for a few years to adopt a new version of ASTM International (ASTM) D2513 Polyethylene (PE) Gas Pressure Pipe, Tubing and Fittings (ASTM D2513-09A). This updated standard has numerous technical improvements over the 1999 version. But the PHMSA did not propose updating that piping standard.
