Does anyone have experience using API 5L X65M SAWL pipe under design code ASME B31.3 with a design temperature of -48°C? Although we have impact tests which meet the requirements according ASME B31.3 Table 323.3.5, I have my doubts about the weldability in a pipe system. Can we use our standard PQR/WPS/WPQ procedures for ASTM A333/A420 materials to weld an API 5L X65M pipe to an ASTM A420GrWPL6 reducer?
Any reply would be highly appreciated.
