This bill provides that a pipeline operator is not to install or operate an intrastate natural gas pipeline (pipeline) with a maximum operating pressure in excess of 250 pounds per square inch gauge (psig) within 100 feet of any building that has been issued a certificate of occupancy, provided that the building is in existence prior to, or under construction at the date of execution of the right-of-way or easement agreement, or at the date of filing with the Clerk of the Superior Court of New Jersey of a complaint in a condemnation action. Under the bill, a pipeline operator is to not replace or relocate a pipeline with a maximum operating pressure in excess of 250 psig to a location that is within 100 feet of a building that has been issued a certificate of occupancy without prior approval from the board. A pipeline operator is exempt from the requirements provided in this bill if the following conditions are met: (1) at the time of initial installation or operation of the pipeline, the pipeline was located within 100 feet of a building that has been issued a certificate of occupancy; (2) the replacement or relocation of the pipeline will not decrease the distance between the pipeline and the building; and (3) the replaced or relocated pipeline will be at least 100 feet away from any building that has been issued a certificate of occupancy. This bill codifies N.J.A.C.14:7-1.4.
