This section regulates pipelines that are used to carry natural or synthetic gas at a pressure of more than 90 pounds per square inch, along with pipelines used to carry petroleum products and coal. Special rules apply to pipelines used to carry natural gas at a pressure of more than 125 pounds per square inch. The construction of a pipeline requires a routing permit from the Public Utilities Commission, with some exceptions. Interstate gas pipelines are subject to federal law and exempt from these requirements.
