C-1: Revisions to Auxiliary Installations, Replacement Facilities, and Siting and Maintenance Regulations, Docket Nos. RM12-11-000, -001:

On April 2, 2012, the Interstate Natural Gas Association of America (INGAA) requested clarification of section 2.55 of the Commission’s regulations that deals with auxiliary installations and which facilities that may be added, altered or replaced under a company’s existing Natural Gas Act (NGA) section 7(c) certificate authorization without additional authorization. In response to INGAA’s request, the Commission issued a NOPR on December 20, 2012, proposing to revise section 2.55(a) to clarify that auxiliary facilities must be located within the certificated permanent right of-way or authorized facility site and must use the same temporary work space that was used to construct the existing facilities. In response to the NOPR, INGAA filed a request for rehearing alleging that the revised section 2.55(a) implies a right-of-way limitation to the definition of auxiliary installations even though no such language exists in the regulation. Agenda item C-1 may be a Final Order and/or order on rehearing.
