OMB Control Number: 2137-0598.

Type of Request: Renewal of a currently-approved information collection.

Abstract: Under 49 CFR 195.444 of the Federal pipeline safety regulations, operators of single-phase hazardous liquid pipeline facilities that use computational pipeline monitoring (CPM) leak detection systems must comply with the standards set out in American Petroleum Institute (API) publication API 1130. API 1130 requires operators to record and retain certain information regarding the operation and testing of CPM systems. Compliance with API 1130, including its recordkeeping requirements, supports pipeline safety by ensuring the proper functioning of CPM leak detection systems.

Affected Public: Operators of hazardous liquid pipelines.

Annual Estimated Burden Hours: 100.

Frequency of Collection: On occasion.

Comments are invited on the following: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information collected will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. A comment to OMB is most effective if OMB receives it within 30 days of publication.
