Final Implementation of Pennsylvania’s Gas and Hazardous Liquids Pipelines Act



On February 17, 2012, the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (“PUC”) issued a final implementation order (the “Final Implementation Order”) to implement the recently enacted Gas and Hazardous Liquids Pipelines Act (the “Act”). A general overview of the Act is described in a prior alert. The Final Implementation Order sets forth determinations regarding the Act and provides final registration materials for pipeline operators that are subject to the Act.

Prior to the adoption of the Final Implementation Order, the PUC issued a tentative implementation order (the “Tentative Implementation Order”), along with proposed registration and reporting forms and invited public comment thereto. In addition to seeking public comment, the PUC held a conference call during which the PUC staff discussed its implementation of the Act with industry stakeholders.

The Final Implementation Order adopts much of the Tentative Implementation Order, and addresses and clarifies issues that were identified to the Tentative Implementation Order via written comments and the conference call held by the PUC.

Please see full alert below for more information.
