What agency oversees the safe maintenance and operation of a natural gas transmission line, and how do they fulfill their responsibility?

0

The U.S. Department of Transportation (“U.S. DOT”) is responsible for setting the regulations that govern the operation and maintenance of interstate natural gas pipelines. The pipeline is designed, constructed and operated to meet the safety requirements exclusively governed by the U.S. DOT. Regional U.S. DOT representatives perform periodic inspections of the pipeline operator by reviewing records; operating and maintenance procedures; and the facilities to ensure that operating practices meet U.S. DOT regulations.
