Does the rule apply to the operator of a marketing facility if that operator does not own or operate a pipeline but rather receives and delivers hazardous liquid from/to third-party pipelines?

Yes, if the facility is otherwise covered by Part 195. (The integrity management rule, by itself, makes no changes to the applicability of Part 195 rules). Since Part 195 applies generally to pipeline facilities, not just to line pipe, the requirements of 195.452 for HCA identification also apply to facilities that fall under Part 195 jurisdiction. If the operators facilities could affect an HCA, then the operator would be required to have an integrity management program that implements all applicable requirements of the rule including, the need to identify risks to the facility and take preventive and mitigative actions to reduce these risks.
