[Docket No. PHMSA-2014-0150]

Pipeline Safety: Public Workshop on Hazardous Liquid Integrity 
Verification Process

AGENCY: Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, DOT.

ACTION: Notice of public meeting.


SUMMARY: This notice is announcing a public workshop to be held on the 
concept of ``Hazard Liquid Integrity Verification Process (HL IVP).'' 
The HL IVP is to confirm the Maximum Operating Pressure when pipeline 
records are not traceable, verifiable, or complete. The Pipeline and 
Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) held a similar 
workshop in August 2013 on the Integrity Verification Process for gas 
transmission pipelines to help address several mandates in the Pipeline 
Safety, Regulatory Certainty, and Job Creation Act of 2011 and National 
Transportation Safety Board recommendations. At this one day workshop, 
PHMSA will present the latest information for a proposal for HL IVP and 
have presentations of perspectives from pipeline operators, state 
regulatory partners, and the public. Earlier draft material provided to 
stakeholders along with comments in response from the American 
Petroleum Institute and the Association of Oil Pipelines are available 
via the same docket for this workshop.

DATES: The public meeting will be held on Thursday, August 27, 2015.

ADDRESSES: The workshop will be held at the Crystal City Marriott at 
Reagan National Airport, 1999 Jefferson Davis Highway Arlington, VA, 
22202. A limited block of rooms is available at the government rate of

2015, or when the block is filled, whichever comes first. More
