Dumb question regarding One Call and abandoned pipes


Dumb question regarding One Call and abandoned pipes

So lets say a company does all the proper work to abandon a section of pipeline as required by contract and regulations–disconnected, cleaned, and capped–must that company keep it registered with the state one call agency? If it varies by state, lets use Texas and/or Louisiana as a test case.

To generalize, is there any scenario in which a company should not register a pipeline with their one call agency, other than in case of complete removal or it being above ground?

I've been looking through one call buffers submitted by other companies and I've found a lot of discrepancy in who covers what, and my assumptions regarding abandoned lines have been called into doubt. My assumption is that abandoned lines should be kept in the One Call system.
