The Illinois Commerce Commission’s Natural Gas Pipeline Safety section is charged with inspection and
enforcement activities applicable to intrastate natural gas transmission, distribution and gathering pipeline
facilities to assure compliance with all Federal and State safety rules and regulations pertaining to the design, construction,
operation and maintenance of those facilities. It also investigates incidents involving jurisdictional natural gas facilities
resulting in injury requiring hospitalization, a fatality, or property damage exceeding $50,000.
The Pipeline Safety section does not inspect interstate gas or hazardous liquid pipeline facilities.
Inspection information regarding inspection and regulation enforcement of intrastate gas and hazardous liquid facilities is
