This information collection request would require operators of gas distribution pipeline systems to submit annual report data to the Office of Pipeline Safety in accordance with the regulations stipulated in 49 CFR Part 191 by way of form PHMSA F 7100.1-1. The form is to be submitted once for each calendar year. The annual report form collects data about the pipe material, size, and age. The form also collects data on leaks from these systems as well as excavation damages. PHMSA uses the information to track the extent of gas distribution systems and normalize incident and leak rates. PHMSA proposes to revise this information in conjunction with proposed regulatory changes made in the Pipeline Safety: Gas Pipeline Regulatory Reform Final Rule. The requested revision would revise form F7100.1-1, the Gas Distribution Annual Report, to collect the total number of mechanical joint failures that occur within each calendar year.

PHMSA proposes to revise form F7100.1-1, the Gas Distribution Annual Report, to collect the total number of mechanical joint failures that occur within each calendar year. PHMSA estimates that it will take operators approximately 30 minutes (0.5 hours) to add this information to the annual report, assuming that reporting each mechanical joint failure takes 3 minutes and each operator has an average of approximately 9 mechanical joint failures per year on average. As a result, the burden for this information collection will increase by approximately 723 hours for an estimated total burden of 25,305 hours (17.5 hours * 1,446 operators).
